    The problem with renaming “master” to “main” is it distracts from the real issue the US is facing these days.

    A better name for the branch everybody is working on would be “systemic-racism”. That would force everybody to do their part in fixing the ugly past of the US.

    AC Origins and AC Odyssey have this weird hatred for animals. Some of the content in the game is literally "go kill alpha animal"

    I can understand self defense against attacking animals, I can understand killing animals for meat and fur (these games are set in ancient Egypt and Greece). But "kill alpha animal" as content, whhhhyyyyyyy.

    As a former Hindu, I say cut the crap. There is NOTHING wrong with the name rawhide. It's not offensive in any way.

    Religious people have been mollycoddled for too long, they can go fuck themselves. These Hindu right wing extremists have gotten out of hand, getting "offended" at everything, while running around raping, lynching and murdering people.

    This is basically like pandering to the KKK, Nazis or ISIS sentiments. Don't.

    yes you are a master of concept in the FLOSS development.
    i really like your idea.. make the sentence: "I love Bill Gates" the save word for all the social justice worriers...

    and be sure if they use the save words: "I love Bill Gates" ...
    we will threat them with great respect.
    Be very very very sure about this LOL....

    my local electrician in germany has also a Master title of his professional training degree...
    i am in the same boot like you i can not find any insulting about the word "Master"

    if we had used BDSM spreech and call it "Dominus" instead of "Master" then we could really argue that there is no Dominus without a slave in the BDSM play...

    the Wort Dominus is conected to "Dominance and submission" and slave is the Submission part.

    most people do not know much about Rhetoric and words basically there are 3 types of the same meaning...

    it is Dominus(negativ meaning) vs Master (neutral meaning) vs Mentor (Positive meaning)

    means all 3 words means basically the same Dominus/Master/Mentor but they have different connotation means Dominus is used in negative way and master is used in neutral way and Mentor is only used in a positive way.

    • I wonder when Red Hat are going to stop using the term "MASTER storage domain"
    • etc.
    It must be really tiring having so many first world problems and not enough hours in the day to virtue signal.

    IMHO master is a very good name.
    When I see it I associate it with you doing a good job. Being a master in something you do.

    The people who want to remove it obviously associate master with slaves,
    why would they do that in 2020?
