Yes, many seek to remove any concept of morals (or even ethics), to
remove any hint of the founder's original intentions, to remove all
politically incorrect prose and the ever-expanding menagerie of
trigger words and phrases from all "upstanding and upright" technical
material such as documentation.

Let us all submit to the passive aggressive, cry bully
trigger-melting "unique snowflakes" by making the entire public world
a safe space.

Or, let's not‼

Let's honour the intentions, ethics, vision and grace of the founders
on whose shoulders we stand (such as Richard Stallman).

Let's admit that we are above submission to an endless march of
passive aggressive cry bullies demanding the entire world become
their safe space.

Let's admit that everything we say and do is in some way, on some
level political, and at the very least honour the intentions of the
founders of those projects we benefit so handsomely from.

Do. Not. Subsidize. Bad. Behaviour.

And do not subsidize the passive aggressive safe-space demanding cry


To paraphrase you: "The work to avoid offending the various
categories of snowflake safe-space-junkies, can be a real cost, can
be significant, is a detriment, and the chilling effect this all has
is real."

THAT is the reason this particular joke (by RMS) should stay in the
glibc manual.

"The triggered" and "the oppressed" are redefining permissible speech
- which is ironically apropos RMS' original joke.

The redefinition of allowed speech is dangerous and literally
tyrannical in the underlying intent of doing so (whether conscious,
or unconscious) - refer Dr Jordan Peterson who puts this exact point
so succinctly.

Create your world,
