for people to comment

I used the term ‘shyster’ in a post on a mail list, and someone thought it derogatory. Looking into it, I agree; I apologized and will not use it in the future. Others want to discuss whether it is or not derogatory; here’s a place to discuss this.

I reserve the right to remove comments that are or approach hate speech.

    I’m sorry. What does “shyster” mean?
