Is shit in that idiom something unjustified or something justified? Like shit seems to indicate that it's not something that was deserved. Is this the case?

As Lorel commented:

It refers to bad or disrespectful treatment. Usually undeserved.

  • @MaulikV It is perfectly reasonable to take a valid comment and turn it into an answer. I was simply giving credit for relocating a comment that should have been an answer in the first place. ell.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/4592/…

  • In that case, you could have simply put another comment under the 'answer comment' asking the OP to put it as an answer. Anyway, I did nothing to this answer being a moderator.
