: 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?

Personally I hate the words 'brainstorm' and 'brainstorming' so anyone who bans it has my complete support. This is not based on any idea of political correctness (which I think is largely an urban myth kept alive by the more reactionary press) but just because I hate it!
