Would you care to put a number to that claim? I would suggest that in fact a small number of loud and highly motivated people care.

The name only has a connotation that some deem offensive in the US. Outside the US, it typically describes sex costumery or an injured limb. By definition, that is not anywhere near "everybody else". You do realise that there are users outside the US don't you?

Like I said, most people don't give a shit.
