Peter Neilson Made this brilliant statement:

Now for a totally different perspective: Should the concept of slavery
never be mentioned? Should we never use the words master and slave, and
strive to forget that such a relationship between humans is possible?
Who wants to eliminate the words, and for what motive? There are areas
of the world where slavery of one form or another still exists,
including within the US. I cannot bring myself to put details here.


HEAR HEAR! Or is that here here? I never can recall.

In any case you are right on - and besides - we AREN'T talking about something sentient when we refer to our drives and such - yet. (insert scary thought here)
