I fully recognize that some are offended by the use of some words and  
respect that.  Indeed, I am offended at times myself, especially by  
profane crudity or statist talk.  Yet, I might use words in  
describing a script, such as "environment", "market", "bid", "bet",  
"trade", "privileged", "stasis", "govern", "evolve", "destroy",  
"clone", "union", "reproduce", "fidelity", "license", "free",  
"constrained", "must", "bind", "advise", "terminate", "close",  
"stealth", "reject", "mutate", "save", "master", "daughter", "pure",  
"strict", "container", "box" or "prune", that might offend some  
person, but the use of those words are not intended to offend.
