Redis does a Python, crushes 'offensive' master, slave code terms


What next?

Are we going to get lots of requests to change the naming of pins on hardware SPI interfaces from the perfectly descriptive MISO/MOSI?

Or perhaps the Power architecture mnemonic EIEIO being offensive to farmers? (I remember seeing a comment in the source that said // Old Macdonald had a farm).

How about slaved power supplies for proper sequencing should be renamed? Dependent? (Can't have that, implies economic status)

Maybe the term 'bit twiddling' can be offensive (sexual incorrectness)

The list goes on; these terms are used because they perfectly describe the relationship in hardware.

Get a grip! (Oh, is that offensive too?)
