Recently a question was posed which asked for a list of words whose etymology is an ethnic slur. The questioner specifically stated that they wanted words like "gypped" which is unremarkable to many people but is actually a slur against gypsies and the stereotype that they will cheat you. Many words have an etymology along the same lines and I honestly feel that this site is a good place to list them, because this kind of question is difficult to answer by simply visiting Etymology Online. The idea seems to be that, because a list question can have no single correct answer, this is not a good question to ask. I don't see why that has to matter. The powers-that-be, and many of the users of the stack exchange network seem to be clinging to a mantra that every single question has to be about a single objective fact, yet we have plenty of stackexchange sites whose entire subject matter is subjective, and in many cases English usage is also subjective.
So given that this "list request" question was on-topic, asking for specific information, and any given answer is not even particularly subjective, was it closed simply because "lists are always bad"? Am I an outlier in thinking this was a good question? Or is there some other, better reason for closing this that I am just not understanding yet?
