And I am inclined to agree except the last bit: "if
one is a
negative somewhere its best to avoid altogether."

I wonder how many programmers are going to bother to
find out what is considered rude among people in Papua
New Guinea?

Like all things - there have to be some limits - but
not to the point where everybody's creativity is
frozen because they are worried about who (or what?)
they might offend next.

And, between you and me, I have always found "put"
incredibly
offensive - NOT!

sincerely, Richmond Mathewson
