what does it mean when it is posted that a short list was created? does that mean that someone is on the shortlist or that someone called and was told there was a short list or that someone got a rejection or that someone with inside information posted that? just curious.

It could mean that someone was notified of being on the shortlist, an applicant asked for a status update and was told there was a shortlist, or possibly an insider posted the information. Getting a rejection letter does not imply that there is a shortlist yet; an early rejection letter probably means the application was triaged in the first pass for any number of reasons (e.g., applicant is in the wrong discipline for the advertised job).
