Which people? because so far the only people I've seen take these
terminologies out of computing context, are those who are only voicing
their "concern" out of bad faith, as well as those who fall for the
concern-trolling bait. The meta-discussion serves to stir up noise and
waste time that's better spent on other things.

History pains, sure, but I believe it serves no justice to erase every
trace of bad things that happened in history. That includes use of
words tangentially related to such events.
