<jargon, abuse> (Or "Dick Size War", "DSW") Any argument which has degenerated into quantitative boasting of the sort "My [program|bot|etc.] is [faster|meaner|etc.] than yours!". Generally as unconstructive (and with as little emphasis on empirical proof) as men debating who has the biggest penis.
The term is often used on IRC, alt.sysadmin.recovery, and sometimes applied to IRC botwars, because of their equally pointless nature.
