The thing is, if it's not used as an oppressional term, calling it
oppressional is pretty silly. Most opinions that can be replaced by a
small shell-script are stupid in my eyes. Context does matter, dammit.

Yes. And every other program out there. If you're going to get all up in
arms about this one, I'm going to cause a racket abour "Porn-groove"
being in there.

Fighting words is stupid - words have no meaning other than what's put
into them. Fight the ones being oppressive instead. Now that's a valid
cause and I'll stand right beside you there.

I see we're going to have a problem reaching an agreement here, since it
appears that this is both yours and my pet peeve.
