    • A phrase used in tech to mean "silly arguments about things that, we, white male nerds, do not consider worthy of consideration by our giant brains".
    • That is, it's usually used as a prohibition in comments sections: no discussion of culture war issues allowed. There's a good deal of justification for this, such discussions don't tend to be very productive or generative of insight. I'm sympathetic to this.
