What is sandbagging?
Sep 13, 2013

I think the meaning of the word sandbagging is very clear, but in my old age I am learning I am not always right. So I think it would be helpful to find out what the word means to others that read this forum, since the word is used here so much.

To me the word has a narrow and specific meaning in the context of any competition. It simply means to profit from taking advantage of the rules in a manner not intended. Whether the competition is a a game of cards, a sport, or a DPR challenge it doesn't matter. Technically it is not cheating since no rules were broken, but ethically most people consider it cheating.

Please let the rest of us know what you think the word means, but please don't be like Humpty Dumpty and say a word means just what you want it to mean.
