...oh no not my master/slave

"The computer term "master/slave," which was banned as racially offensive by a Los Angeles County purchasing department, was named the most politically incorrect term of the year on Thursday."---Reuters

OH COME ON! For those of you who don't know, master/slave refers to the computer's hard drives of the 1st and 2ndary drives. If you read on in the article, they say that people should use "waitron" if you wanna address a waitor OR a it just me or does that sound like a Transformer name?

I really think we're just trying to get way to PC with things and that people shouldn't take offense and be so sensitive....c'mon...not many people know of "master/slave" unless they're it that offensive?
