I answered that question in the next two sentences
With an assertion that it is "simply wrong" for the term "rip-off" to be able to have the semantic function in the language that it very plainly has. That answer, and your entire approach to the semantics of the question, is not even wrong
That's quite an insinuation about my motives. It's groundless speculation.
It's a "groundless" "insinuation" to speculate that you're trying to rule out the usage of a term you dislike when you've spent thousands of words in this thread explicitly and by your own admission attempting to do just that?
I mean, maybe I'm just being a wet blanket. It just seems like you're way overreacting to the term and that your apparent belief that you can make an objective or semi-objective case for ruling out its use looks fundamentally misguided.
