Meaning of poxy

poxy means: Originally someone who had one of the various pox's, e.g. chicken pox, cow pox, small pox etc. These produce pustules on the skin which can often result in 'pock marks, hence pocky, pocksy or poxy. From that, anyone who has some sort of skin problem would be called 'poxy'... and from that anyone thought to be crap or minging would get the nick as well! The contributor was musing on why the name has persisted for so long since smallpox has been eradicated for so long, but I think he's forgetting that 'the pox' was also a euphemism for any kind of venereal disease, or sexually transmitted infection. So, for as long as *they* persist, being called 'poxy' will be an insult!
