I've found this distinction, and arguments against morality in general, to be less and less useful/convincing. Isn't this just describing critical thinking?

I believe the negative reactions post-leftists get online over this is because it's so often used as a way to avoid arguing ethics. Just call someone a moralist for having a strongly held belief, even if it has been critically though out, and you can pretend to have outwitted them.

And as Dumai said, so many people confuse the two because the tiny number of post-lefts are the only people who use words this way.
