Typically, I consider the "social justice warrior" to be somebody who jumps into completely unrelated subjects to troll over SJW issues in a way that serves no real point other than to derail the conversation.
For example, let's say we are talking about speedrunning Super Mario Bros 3.
Poster #1: "Well, at the third jump in world n.n, you can do y and it saves x frames".
Poster #2: "But if you do y, you can't do z, which will save x+1 frames later on."
SJW : "Peach is objectified, this game is sexist, and you are supporting patriarchy and rape culture!!"
They're not trying to start a discussion. They're not trying to present an argument. They're just threadshitting in a way that tries to force posters onto the defensive and results in 3-5 pages of people who now feel obliged to defend the honor of SMB3 and to let everybody know how not-sexist they are.
The hallmark of the "SJW" to me is that they are not advancing either the discussion they interrupted or the cause of the social justice issue they brought up. They're just throwing out a social justice threadbomb to disrupt things and poo poo up a thread/discussion/etc.
