originated in 1999 on a free ProBoards forum when
some diehard randroid
came and put a quote relating to Objectivism in her signature. This caused ads for Objectivist
dating/sportswear/etc. to appear on every thread---the administrator quickly added
"objectivism" to the censored word
list and made it so every time she used this word
it would become "objectivitism."
then, the word
has come into widespread
use in our community
and probably others as well; where I live, you frequently hear people referring
to "objectivitism" or "objectivitists" when referring
to Ayn Rand's philosophy or her followers, respectively.
