    Angry SLAVE AND MASTER no more

    I have just heard on CNN that someone complained to the city of L.A. that the terms Master and Alave offended him, so the city of L.A. decided that computer manufactoring companies may no longer call hard drives master and slave, but rather primary and secondary. This is P.C. out of control!

    The terms 'male' and 'female' for plugs will have to go as they exclude couplings by homosexual cables.

    The final legacy of the United States will be that in the end liberalism shamed & destroyed the heritage of this great nation. How sad as I see no turning back. When in Rome ..

    HAHA

    But really, who cares about this kind of stuff. What's the big deal?

    I'm offended by the term "99 Cent Big Mac," but I don't go around filing law suits.

    Welcome to techIMO TranceHead, Glad you could join us. The "pc craze" has to go. This is just the latest of the craziness.
    They say technology slows down for no one. I know it outruns my wallet. I figure its because my wallet isn't light enough yet.

    We would request that each manufacturer, supplier, and contractor review, identify, and remove/change any identification or labeling of equipment or components thereof that could be interpreted as discriminatory or offensive in nature

    So they want the entire nation to throw away all of thier computers because they might offend some one?

    Los Angeles County presumably also frowns on references to ''male'' and ''female'' plumbing and electrical parts.

    well, my mother who is very non-tech, calls everything a thing, so we can hook up that thing to this thing to get the next thing to work with this thing then turn on that thing, and hope you don't get one of them things on your screen thing, saying something about that thing not seeing this thing because the first thing is not for the third thing to hook up to the next thing you started with before the last thing, did you understand anything?

    Things are getting rather ridiculous. I wonder if people just think up things to whine about...

    I think it's pretty funny how you put stars to watch your swearing, yet you still get burned by the mods for saying for JC's sake, lol. On top of that it happened in a being P.C. thread, lmao, I can't believe the JC is offensive.

    ...well, there go the "master" cylinders on cars, and all the technical manuals refering to them.... maybe they should also restrict access to work related websites that ls parts by such terms?

    BTW - I work for the city of LA, Dept. Water & Power -and EVERYONE I have talked to ablut this thinks it is the stupidest thing they have ever heard of ...the inspiration of ONE disgruntled NUT no doubt.

    Maybe we should report Los Angeles to the ACLU.

    After all the city of "angels" is a religous reference to a government. Doesn't sound very pc to me!
