At this point you're deliberately refusing to understand plain english. SJW is a perjorative term invented as a response to feminists whining "but that's not TRUE feminism!" every time a feminist did something blatantly bigoted and anti-equality. It's a term used for people who use the language and appearance of Social Justice as a smokescreen for actually being toxic abusive bigots.

This is made exceedingly clear almost everywhere it's ever used, but you continue to try and rewrite history to somehow erase that and defend people who commit felonies and violent crimes using "social justice" or "feminism" as a shield against criticism.

You would have said "cleverly fought back" because you're trying to defend a domestic abuser that's been astroturfing since the original wizardchan lynch mob.

No, it wasn't. The word SJW literally was a perjorative from the start. You're trying to pass off revisionist history to defend people who do shit like commit felonies to shut down suicide prevention efforts and send rape victims info to their rapist as revenge for some minor imagined slight.

...Someone from the back row shouts out "Because our AdSense profile has determined you were visiting websites about cigarettes recently, your health insurance premium has gone up by 5% and you will probably die slightly sooner. Remember, [i]f you have something that you don't want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn't be doing it in the first place!"

Is it cynicism if you're just using a Markov chain to predict what other Slashdotters will say?

(Although obviously this is auto insurance, so I'm sure someone can translate the threat appropriately.)

Where there's a will, there's an Inheritance Tax.
