    Slave & Master: You can't name drives that way in Cali

    In an interesting twist on political correctness, LA County has banned the use of the terms 'Master/Slave' (commonly used to denote hard drive arrangements.) According to Snopes.com, 'someone within the County bureaucracy... had taken offense at "master/slave" references and complained to the board.' LA County now requires that vendors working with the county remove all 'master/slave' references. Incredible.

    The Full Report

    THIS IS TOO HILARIOUS...

    So, I am sick and tired of people calling it "White Milk".. I want it to be called just "Milk"

    And I hate that tires are called "White Walled" I would like it to be called "Ringed"

    And, I hate that they call lines on the road, "White Lines"! I want them to be called Non-Black Lines LOL

    MASTER AND SLAVE is a universal.. I don't give a rats ass if you get offended by it or not.. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

    Some people are just too sensitive. I'm sure none of you heard about this local news: http://communique.portland.or.us/03/...t_picture.html


    A stuffed animal on the front of a police car is a stuffed animal on the front of a police car...the racism lies not in the placement of and display of the stuffed animal but in the minds of those who are accusing it of being racist. Anyone who thinks that African Americans are being represented by a stuffed gorilla on the hood of a car really needs to look at their own views about African Americans...why is it even crossing their mind that a gorilla might be insulting to African Americans? Do the accusors think that African Americans resemble gorillas? Where is the racism really being projected from?

    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    The one who decided to banned it, because someone said it was offended sound like someone I know, that has to do crazy thing just because he has a compulsion to make happy other people and cannot think by himself (I can't tell who he is, but I work for him )
    Anyhow, then native americans have to feel offended too. And I should too because I am latin (No, I don't think I am latin because I actually don't really feel confortable with latins, nor with americans )
    Isn't there a point where too much is too much.
    Maybe having so much freedom to complain, restrain the freedon that people has to think. Imagine next time that you need to trubleshoot a computer problem and check the 1 and 2 drive?? Humm, not you cannot because EIDE channels are called like that....maybe primary....wait, thaT IS TAKEN
    WAIT, wasn't IBM who designed the first PC?? and from there is where names come from??? So, I can actually sue IBM????

    You got the whole point of my post DEHC. It is the fact that anything can offend anybody... so why the hell must we change it?

    The terms slave and master are words we use, not a means to put people down.

    I guess from now on the Genie in Aladdin will have to say "the guy tha that freed me" and "I'm here to help" instead of "Master" and "I am here to serve"

    LMAO.

    This is bordering on being dam right ridiculous, hmmm imaging kicking up a fuss over such a petty thing. Obviously someone in the County bureaucracy just didnt have anything to do on this day and thought "hey I guess I should come up with something to justify my pay check".
