What is the meaning of "lets not sweat it" in this post?

Is it something like "let's not take it too seriously?" or "hey man, take it easy?".

    Dictionary.com defines it pretty clearly. – Armen Ծիրունյան Feb 17 '12 at 13:41
  • As in what, something like “My servant lets not sweat its toll upon his sunny disposition take”? This message brought to you courtesy of the Apostrophic Jihad. – tchrist Feb 17 '12 at 13:41
  • @tchrist, is the cited sentence without error? The "take" at the end of it doesn't seem to fit there... – Innate Imunity is The Way Feb 17 '12 at 13:48
  • @Tomas Yes, it is without error. It has poetic inversion. – tchrist Feb 17 '12 at 13:49
  • @thchrist your citation is a different usage. Why confuse Tomas? Tomas - the dictionary reference is correct. Also note, this is an Americanism – slim Feb 17 '12 at 14:00
