Now they are attacking computer jargon.

I got that with Modbus.  Modbus has a master and a slave and it's not used much anymore.  I only run into it on legacy systems for the most part these days.  So that means it was never slapped by the PC police.  I was showing a young engineer around modbus and he got visibly uncomfortable with the terms.  He wanted to give them different names.  "So it's like Server/Client?"  "No, it's not server/client, there is an option in Modbus that is server/client and it's different."

I was on a board where someone had written im***sible. I looked at that for the longest time before I realized that the nanny-ware had edited out POS.

 

On a gaming website I used to read, the filters were so tight that we couldn't even talk about onegrouping a raid zone (a raid is multiple groups so being able to onegroup it is a big deal) because of the naughty word right in the middle.  Took me a long time to figure out what o*****up meant.  In the politics section of that website we couldn't even talk about Chris Coons back when he was doing something worth talking about.

How about ever thing you plug in has male prongs going into a female receptacle?  Or male and female ends of pipe?


I remember asking my mom about why this was so when I was a kid. Her answer was, “Because men think they’re so funny”.

That is why they are called receptacles & plugs.  Until the receptacle is on the power consuming device, then they are called inlets.

Next that they will find offensive will be the number 69

In Northern Indiana they did years ago. A group lobbied to have interstate 69 re-named to something else because the name I69 offended them. Thank goodness the idea went nowhere.
