People are too stupid?
Your main argument is that people will not understand and that the route of the word is incorrect. First off you do not give people enough credit. Secondly butt and butter. Because Butter has to do with butts right? Your argument is so flawed it is hilarious. Also, when does the media ever explain anything fully. Use the correct terminology and it will work itself out with time. We are not expecting the media to sit there an explain everything to everyone. Just use proper terminology and the meaning of the word as it was derived originally. https://manybutfinite.com/post/first-recorded-usage-of-hacker/
