Onomatopoeia for the word sci-fi as a derogatory label towards the softer forms of science fiction (i.e. space opera, science fantasy, Doctor Who, the Marvel/DC Comics universes, etc.). Most users of the word are purists that reject anything not grounded in some semblance of reality (or, failing that, fringe science).
The Sci-Fi Channel became total skiffy the moment they renamed to SyFy.
