The feigning of qualities and beliefs that one does not actually posess or hold, especially a pretense of piety or moral superiority. On Slashdot, this word is frequently misused against the ill-defined group slashdotters. It is not hypocrisy, for example, for one individual to make a statement that is incongruous with the apparent beliefs of a labeled or overgeneralized group, of which he/she may not even be a member!
