What we talk about when we talk about Gypsies

Per mod request, I'd like to open a dialogue on the use of "Gypsy" as an ethnic descriptor here on MetaFilter.

Do you slander Romani?

I'm sorry, but did someone just post that Gypsies are raised as criminals and have no moral values? Not just a literary allusion to lower-class itinerants, he calls out the Romani by name - the same Romani slaughtered by the million by the Third Reich for being a race of evil criminals. And it gets ten favorites? Really? [more inside]
