'Techie' Is An Offensive Word Now?

Since when did "techie" become offensive? Seriously, what the hell?

"If you use the word 'techie,' we know you're not in tech," said the Mission District resident. "A lot of negative terms like that - yuppie, hipster - are outsider terms. We don't call each other techies - at all, ever." The preferred terms, he said, are "hackers," "makers" or "coders."
