SF Weekly editing staff can use other synonyms of terminology of robbers, thieves or larcenists instead of "goon" to create negative propaganda with relevance to unlawful activity on someone's deceased mother's maiden name. According to a definition in the online wikipedia, GOON is defined as follows: "A goon is someone that is employed as someone's personal enforcer, such as either a personal bodyguard or a ruffian who is kept on staff to intimidate or assault people." DEFAMATION;LIBEL;SLANDER via negative propaganda is NOT ACCEPTABLE. TOTALLY UNCOOL and HIGHLY UNPROFESSIONAL. Please change your vocabulary or someone else can defame you too and it would be fair to treat you as you have treated others under a GOLDEN RULE.
