my original statement is pretentious in itself
In that it's almost always used to pour scorn on intellectual snobbery from an anti-intellectual snob position.
Though to be quite honest the entire discourse of the argument is an absurd thing...The claim and its realisation have bugger-all space in any kind of half-decent discussion.
pretentious = something which purports to display a greater level of intellect than it does in reality.
But John BRNLV is correct in that it is often used by pathetic retards to describe stuff they don't understand.
