Re: Hold on a moment...
"they're just words - don't cling onto them so dearly because the next generation will be changing them anyway."
What if the next generation *doesn't* change them? Does throw a wrench in that frisson of superiority?
"its a constant battle between the progressives who are willing to modify words to convey new and better meanings and the regressives who cling on to their old definitions,"
In any case, what is new and better here? How is insisting upon different words to describe the *same* controller -> controlled relationship "better"?
