: A friend from the UK just brought me a newspaper clipping that says "Bedlam", "nitpicking" and "brainstorm" among others) have been outlawed in in goverment work places because they might offend someone?

Weird. Bedlam I can understand. But I don't see how nitpicking and brainstorm could offend anyone.
