I need to translate the word "срач" to a different language. I am having a hard time trying to say it in different words in order to accurately explain the exact shade of the meaning. Could you please propose some synonyms for "срач" to help me understand its meaning.
6No guys, the question is fine, it asks not for a translation, but for other synonyms.– OlgaJul 15, 2012 at 16:02
1This word is very polysemic. Please clarify the meaning you are looking for, best by providing usage examples.– Quassnoi ♦Nov 27, 2012 at 12:21

срач meaning "a mess":
- грязь (в доме)
1для меня запустение противоположно срачу. Можно устроить срач, а можно - запустение )))– shabunc ♦Jul 24, 2012 at 13:50
1@Dima Я думаю, имелась в виду "запущенность", не "запустение".– DenisJul 27, 2012 at 17:06
@Denis: согласен, запустение звучит странно. Убрал.– DimaNov 27, 2012 at 14:38
Что такое раскардаш? Это кавардак или что?– AnixxMay 22, 2015 at 9:11
@Anixx, Ну да. Беспорядок.– DimaMay 29, 2015 at 21:03
Besides the common meaning of "mess", it can also mean "a quarrel", "a pointless argument", usually applied to discussions on the Internet. So, the synonyms for this meaning will be:
- "хохлосрач" — "a quarrel about Ukraine or Ukrainians"
- "срач на тему чего-либо" — "a quarrel about something"
- "развели тут срач!" — "you started a pointless argument"
And you may want to know about a verb "сраться" which means "to quarrel" and has synonyms:
- "Хватит сраться!", "Не сритесь!" — "Stop fighting!"
5The English analogue would be "flamewar" though it's less rude that срач.– StasMJul 20, 2012 at 0:16
The word "срач" has a strong negative, condescending connotation.
"Ну и срач у тебя дома" sounds similar to "Your home is a pigsty" and "У тебя дом весь загажен".
Similar, although milder, expressions are as follows: "У тебя дома бардак" (milder, but still condescending), "У тебя дома грязь, беспорядок" (neutral, non-judgmental).
1Can also be "intense wrange involving obscene language."– GSergJul 15, 2012 at 8:47
1the question was specifically about synonyms, maybe you could add some to your answer? Jul 15, 2012 at 16:29
Everyone forgot such a wonderful word as holywar or flaming :) срач is a usual business at Internet forums, there disputing on some matter in offensive and warring manner easily become a holywar, there noone wants to agree or to understand position of another person.
If thread in forum have already started with provocational topic, oftenly someone may post an ironical disclaimer in English LET THE SRATCH BEGIN!
Also is possible to use:
If you witness people arguing in comments(on the Web) it's also may be considered as срач. the synonym would be "butthurt". in other situations(if they refer to something physical) the euphemism would be "a mess".
