    Sigh. More stupidity. Yes, slavery has existed for over thousands of years. It was horrible for any slave, no matter their gender or race. It was horrible a 1000 years ago, it's horrible now.

    Why continue to insist on using such horrible words for technical code? It is technically wrong to do so, and in fact only racists and slave supporters have this mindset of using such language. Any sensible person who just learns English and doesn't have this mindset of slavery being ok or the norm, would have used different words, and we'd never have this problem.

    The reality is that all sorts of stereotypes, prejudices and biases infect our work. None of those words being removed today are technically correct, they are very much a byproduct of racism. They have no meaning or place in such technical work, they never dis.
    i agree absolutely, 100%. your own stupidity in not being able to understand context and intent is astonishing. any sensible and educated person would understand that words have multiple meaning depending on their context and intent. master does not simply mean slave master. slave does not simply mean a human being a slave. its you who want to conflate master and slave with racism. its you, your own inability, to understand context and intent. its you making it offensive because you are using it out context. its you projecting your own perception onto it while ignoring the context of what everyone else who has an ounce of sanity means by it when they use it.

    and again, i agree, you are a racist as only people with your mindset are racist. as you can't look past skin color when it comes to master and slave. people shouldn't be held hostage by your own ignorance and bigotry on the matter because you simply cannot understand what they mean. even when they tell you straight to your face. you are being dishonest and you are purposefully giving in to making master and slave mean something awful in coding because a corporation, intel, had one of their employees who believes master and slave is racist go ahead and send in the proposal to purge it out of the linux code base. with samsung, tesla, oracle, facebook, and google all signing off on it.

    some how for decades we were able to use it with no issue because everyone using it wasn't racist. then suddenly when racist who thinks master and slave is racist came all of a sudden its a problem because racist like you wanted it removed because it reminds you of your own internal racism you are struggling with. and then you have the audacity to turn around and call other people racist because they don't understand why you are making master and slave used in coding racist.

    as someone who is a gamer, and who is homosexual, battlefield v, dice banned the word gay in chat. dice also banned poop and fart because those terms are, according to them, offensive. even the word dick is censored. heaven forbid you actually have the name dick as your own name is censored as its offensive. there's actually around 15,000 people in the united states with the first name dick. one of the most famous people named dick outside of dick cheney, a horrible human without a doubt, is dick van dyke. a man, a long time celebrity, with dyke as his last name. which is also censored in battlefield v. i highlight dick and dyke because its a word that clearly as the light of day has many meanings. but ignorant people can't understand that. ignorant people just want to right stuff off as offensive and just ban it. it hurts people's feelings and we have to live in a bubble world.

    see, someone like dick van dyke never meant his name to be offensive. to him, its his name. an innocent name. its who he is. a man, a women, a person with no name is a no one. he is dick van dyke. its other people who take dick and dyke and make it mean something offensive. its other people with a mindset like yours that keep words offensive. rather than let people reclaim a word, make a word, keep a word non-offensive, people like you come along and either make it offensive, or fight to keep it offensive.

    its like going out there, making dike and dyke offensive, then getting mad at dick van dyke by demanding that HE CHANGE his name because YOU find it offensive. well, you made his name offensive. not him. how about you join him in reclaiming both dick and dyke back to mean something innocent.

    its why i call you racist. not because i'm trying to attack you, but rather because you are joining the racist in actively keeping master and slave mean racism. rather than joining the people, the millions of people in the coding scene who were trying to use it in an innocent way and make it no longer offensive. which was being done for decades.

    we use to tell people to understand context and intent for a reason. not only was it for people can actually understand what the person meant, and not take it the wrong way, but also because any word will eventually be used negatively. and have a bad perception of it. we didn't want to go down a censoring spree because of people's own ignorance. its sad to see people now eagerly under the guise of creating a more safe, inclusive safe space give in to that ignorance. and want to censor and ban anything and everything that can have a negative perception. and encourage people to no longer try to understand context and intent. words as violence was the worst thing to happen to humanity as it will destroy language in the long run.

        a emotional "sensible person" should not work in a technical job.

        in a technical job you need logic and not emotions. go work in a Kindergarten and have your emotions. and leave the important technical jobs to the autists and nerds who do not have stupid thinks like "Emotions".

          absolutely right. you are complete right. these Marxist communists use wording as a weapon

          wording is the technique to emotionally connect words into different meaning to make it sound offensive.

          a slave task in linux operating system has nothing to do with human slaves and it has nothing to do with any emotionally or morally meaning but they use wording to make it look like it has anything to do with moral or emotional meaning.

          these Marcist communists only use it because by this way they can control people.

          in technical space it has nothing to do with moral but by wording they can make it look like it has a connection to human slavery.

          it is very simple if you want to hurt your enemy and your freedom loving enemy use linux and you authoritarian use dictatorship windows you just go out and hurt the linux/FLOSS community by claiming all their words they use is racist.

          no its not it is just your Rhetorical word game what makes it look like but thats is how the Wording Rhetorical game works. you weaponize words by charging it up with moral high ground.

          fact is: these people do not want to improve linux/floss they want just everyone waste their time in moralize and weaponize words.

            Lol, you think all current software developers don't have emotions? They very much do. Every single one of them.

            Their privilege, upbringing, environment, biases and stereotypes affect their work considerably. Including naming conventions. You only use racist terms for code, if you were brought up believing that racism is perfectly fine and normal.

              in source code it is fact that something like "racism" does not exist.

              racism only exist in Human space not digital computer space.

              and people who think that in a technical computer science space you need to fix human problems like racism are just stupid.

              you only need to fix human problems in human space and not in computer science.

              fix your emotions means: do not have emotions in compute science ...

              having emotions in computer science is just stupid.

              edit:

              by the way claiming of racism because of words like slave is complete bullshit:

              https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/slave#Etymology
              "Etymology

              From Middle English, from Old French sclave, from Medieval Latin sclāvus (“slave”), from Late Latin Sclāvus (“Slav”), because Slavs were often forced into slavery in the Middle Ages.[1][2][3][4][5] The Latin word is from Byzantine Greek Σκλάβος (Sklábos), see that entry and Slav for more."

              the word slave from english comes from nordic germanic tribes from north/east of germany to russia.

              these are very white people with blond or red hair.

              sorry black people slavery is not about black people.
