Re: Things i learned this week because of AikiWeb

In Japanese, the word for "parting shot/insult" is Itachi no pe and literally means weasel fart. It comes from an old belief that when a weasel gets over its head and flees it passes gas to get in the last insult.
A wise man on the internet wrote:
The internet version is to insult the other person at the same time that you say you are not going to take part in any more discussion. There is usually an implication that if the other person responds to the insult, they are pushing the issue. The person doing the weasel fart wants to leave people with the last word with the last say on the matter at hand and tries to intimidate the other person into not responding any further. If they were honest about not wanting to argue, instead of throwing in any more comments or insults, they have the option of just not posting anymore.
