I read someone asking what mese actually means.

Mese actually means “msn messenger” in Finland and is used as a silly word (it sounds silly) in the ohjelmointiputka programming community. Additionally it is thought that the glasses of the emoticons 8) and 8D are “mese glasses”.

Same here.

What about stress/accentuation? Is there anyone who pronounce it with the accent on the first syllable?

Since it is in the English language, that would be a right thing to do.
But since it isn't my native one, I make a stress on the second syllable. More convenient to me in terms of "energy saving".
However sometimes I pronounce it like two separate words: "me-ce" ("e" like in "America", "c" like in "celebrity")

For me it was me-se like "me" from "Mess" and "Se" "send".
Now its "Meee"-"ssssss"
