Oops... premature submission.
Anyway, Social & Societal are not synonyms in all cases so context could have everything to do with it. Do you have examples?

Exactly. Additionally, a tmesis can be a word divided into multiple words for dramatic effect.

Agree w/ Ben C. I interpret, "All I'm saying" as a statement intentionally devoid of supporting detail and background information so that it will either imply scandal and/or spur another party into saying what the "All I'm saying" originator was thinking.
Along that line, I suppose, "All I'm saying" is a tool of the sh1t stirrer.
