<jargon, abuse> (Or "Dick Size War", "DSW") Any argument which
has degenerated into quantitative boasting of the sort "My
[program|bot|etc.] is [faster|meaner|etc.] than yours!".
Generally as unconstructive (and with as little emphasis on
empirical proof) as men debating who has the biggest penis.
The term is often used on IRC, news:alt.sysadmin.recovery,
and sometimes applied to IRC botwars, because of their
equally pointless nature.
