I heard the term bonjwa used in the context of "Boxer is a Bonjwa". What is a Bonjwa and does it give any privileges to be a Bonjwa?

How can I become a Bonjwa?

A great thread about the statistics of Bonjwas throughout SC:BW history: teamliquid.net/forum/viewmessage.php?topic_id=357124 –  Decency Aug 3 '12 at 9:18

From the Liquipedia:

Bonjwa is a term used to describe a player who dominates the StarCraft scene for a long period of time.

Appears to be a simple slang title given to great players. No privileges other than the subtle sort that accompany fame and prowess.

Hi Christopher, thanks for the answer! We want to try to give everyone the benefit of the doubt here when asking questions here: telling people they should've Googled is generally considered pretty hostile. I don't know about you, but I know I've thought to ask someone who I consider to be an expert before thinking to do a Google search more than once or twice. We also try to improve posts here to be the best they can be, which includes fixing grammatical issues like missing pronouns. –  user3389 Aug 3 '12 at 1:10

Not disrespectful. Standard fare in the other SE-hubs I've been on. Nothing in this.meta or the FAQ speaks against it. Issues that affect clarity should be changed; grammatical issues that do not affect clarity are below the threshold. Why did you leave alone the final sentence, which is technically a fragment (as it possesses no true verb)? If we fix every post to adhere to Strunk & White, we will sacrifice readability (particularly as what is truly a grammatical error can be quite subjective, and we reach anarchy when any unelected individual with >X rep can and will edit a post). –  Christopher Berman Aug 3 '12 at 1:15

Here on Stack Exchange, when we edit a post to fix one issue, we try to fix as many issues as possible while we're there: this way, we make posts the best the can be while minimizing the number of edits done: in this case, fixing the grammatical issue was done at the same time as removing the Google bit as well as the linkification of the source. Check out the blog post "In Defense of Editing", which describes Stack Exchange's editing philosophy in more detail. –  user3389 Aug 3 '12 at 1:29

Fair enough on that too, then (though, again, that doesn't address the distinction between a stylistic element that may contradict S&W but is perfectly understandable, and a true grammatical error). As a side note, your over-the-top politeness, coupled with links, come across as exceedingly condescending. I expect I'm not the only one that greets your comments with mild hostility. –  Christopher Berman Aug 3 '12 at 1:32

@ChristopherBerman I would say that correct grammar actually is quite important, especially to help people whose native language is not English understand the post easily. –  murgatroid99 Aug 3 '12 at 1:49
