Redis does a Python, crushes 'offensive' master, slave code terms


Re: Makes me glad I'm old, accomplished,

How is the use of terms "master" and "replica" "buggering" language? They seem more appropriately descriptive to me than master/slave. Surely just shutting down any suggestion of change is closer to "totalatarian"?


Re: A silly issue, distracting from real work

Just because you don't find these terms offensive or troublesome doesn't mean that someone else's reaction to them is not valid. I'm sure there's things you would find offensive that I couldn't relate to (for example, becoming exasperated by changing my behaviour to accommodate someone else's viewpoint).
