  • It still sounds way too euphemistic a term, if you ask me. Why bother coming up with a fancy name for this "activity" when there are so many simpler ways to phrase it? Assymetric warfare to an average person doesn't say anything. I had to look it up, and I have a college degree. Still, thanks for an alternative definition!
