I'm going to say the same thing here that I said about this same article on another forum..
ROFLMAO, I remember when this whole thing was in the news. Being a pseudo geek and living with a true geek, we laughed for weeks trying to make up new terms for the two hard drive configuration. Dominant and submissive was an obvious one, but we found others; Pimp and Ho, Boss and Peon, God and insignificant insect to name a few. The only one of these that politicized things that doesn't make me laugh is calling the Iraqi terrorists "insurgents." Words have power. Using a euphemism lets things not seem so awful. It lets us ignore the true scope of what is going on over there.
