QotD, What’s The Exact Term For An EVIL Sensei? edition.

OK, some background: There’s a game called What’s Inside the Cube? – and it app… you know, if you know about it you don’t need the explanation, and if you don’t know about it you can probably just click the link.  The point is that apparently the people behind the game have released a feature where you can pay cash money to make it harder for everybody else to solve the puzzle.  And that’s happening, because it’s the Internet.  As Penny Arcade’s Checkpoint said it, succinctly:

“This really is [Peter] Molyneux’s magnum opus: the regimentation and monetization of griefing.”

You’d think I’d disapprove.  Well, no: I’ve been trying to figure out how to monetize Lefty trolls for years.  Stuff like this gives me hope.

    P.S. I suspect that not all Lefty Trolls are too drug addled and disease ridden to break down for parts for sale on the market. That said, I suspect you are talking about legal methods. I am also very interested in those.

    ” . . . what’s the exact term for an evil sensei?”

    Sir.

    Historically, there were many variations of “sama” which denoted fear and evil along with the base respect. Sadly, almost none of these choices survived their early uses, as each utterer would quickly have his head removed, indicating to all that future use of that same term would be unwise.

    Happily, Japanese sociolinguistics move with the times. The modern common usage gives us the new choice of ” -sama-obama”, which denotes official respect mixed with fear and loathing.
