Surely this is wide open to abuse?

Can't people just close down everything via this magical word?

There is something in operation over there I like to call the Thymarchy (from the Greek "thyma" meaning victim) which determines how and if you can silence dissent by claiming victimhood.

A straight, white, cis-gendered, neuro-typical male person can never claim abuse. All newcomers to the forum are considered to be this. Your rank in the thymarchy depends on how many adjectives you can strike off that list before you commit an infraction.
