That's what I try to do... though around here I seem to run either into total
hopeless cases or fairly reasonable people.
I wonder if some people will find certain things offensive no matter what, though.
The editor of the Drachenwald newsletter just got into a bit of a can of worms by
saying that she would use "event steward" rather than "autocrat" for consistency
and because it's more period-sounding. You would think some people were being
forced to hand-weave and stitch all their clothing judging by some reactions!
Luckily other people spoke in favour of the decision, and mentions of freon can
helms seem to put a stop to the non-evolutionists arguments.
