Making inferences by splitting hairs. This is very common when studying Torah, every letter is exact and can teach us lessons. Not so much when it is a congresswoman.

But those are not part of the definition of toeles

(I typically translate toeles to mean benefit)

Why not "benefit"?

Sure.
Purpose came to mind in the moment, benefit captures the idea more.

Toeles
Toy-eh-less
adjective

1) Meets an individual's personal agenda
"My post that @Something Fishy is a liar and a cheat was not gossip, it was l'toeles; so that no one goes on his trips. It had nothing to do with my ongoing feud with his mother in law."

Rebuke
Should have posted the context: If you want to see the greatness of yid- see how he is after he went through a Toichocho.

Still rebuke or something more descriptive?
