Polycarp,
Well, it was surely not the intention to offend you with talking about
offensive terminology which recalls an offensive past and offensive
thinking.

BTW, how old are the words "computer", "e-mail", "discussionlist",
"internet"? Quite a lot neologisms isn't it? Must be rather offensive for
you to have part in such an neologism-culture.

The question is in any case not whether someone did use the terminology in a
pejoratively sense. The question is whether we could be aware of our
terminology, which reflects sometimes a rather painful past. But it might be
too much for you.

Raymond
