Didn't get it. Is it a fancy term for something else?
The only Pingu I know of is a stop-motion kids program. Pingu is a little penguin. He "talks" but only a made up babble. You can still kind of understand him though!

Maybe there's a different, much cooler Pingu though.

Warm cup of tea and a few Laderach bonbons today. That Laderach chocolate sure tastes good!

I wouldn't say so, it is equally pretentious in its own way. That's rather the point, one supposes.

True efforts to solve a problem.

Not eating a certain chocolate doesn't do.

Re: Laderach (Läderach)... run by anti-gay and anti-abortion religious fundamentalist

What is the opposite of signalling ?

not signalling ?

A virtue signaller performs highly visible acts on moral issues in order to draw attention to his/her "good works".

I guess - a virtue signaller posts/talks about acts, there is a difference. Hence the "signalling" bit.

The actual "act" is a rather big word. Never thought about not-eating chocolate or wearing a pink hat as actual activism, it makes me chuckle.

It's funny. People still talking about not virtue signalling the virtue signallers?

Oh. Right. You mean condemning a virtue signaller engaging him/herself for moral cause A, by insisting visibly that ones own support for moral cause B is more worthy.
Then possibly, both are virtue signallers. The word opposite is not at all appropriate here.

If there is one, just one, phrase I wish would whither and die when the long, long, agonisingly long 2019 finally kicks the bucket, ne'er more to be seen or read again, then it is "virtue signalling".

Exactly.

Yes, you're right. StirB got it wrong. Or maybe, maybe he was just being ironic....
