Response to Warpy (Reply #59)

149. Some think they are solving problems by censoring language. Language isn't the problem.

 

Censoring language isn't being liberal. Neither is self-righteousness. The subject of word meanings and usage is something we definitely need to discuss on a "politically liberal" message board. But I don't think it's possible here.
