I think that usually an "elitist" is a term thrown at people by inferior people, and let's face it, the world is full of inferior people.
People who are cultured, understand the finer things in life are often labelled elitist by the great unwashed. Interestingly enough, most people aspire to become part of the so called elite but alas what real chance do they have.
It is much like the people here who aspire to the Star Chamber. I'm terribly sorry but, FAT CHANCE.
Your humble servant,
