I frickin’ HATE political correctness!!!

and ‘slave’ computer labels unacceptable, officials say

“LOS ANGELES, California (Reuters) — Los Angeles officials have asked that
manufacturers, suppliers and contractors stop using the terms ‘master’
and ‘slave’ on computer equipment, saying such terms are unacceptable
and offensive. The request — which has some suppliers furious and others busy re-labeling components
— came after an unidentified worker spotted a videotape machine carrying devices
labeled ‘master’ and ‘slave’ and filed a discrimination complaint
with the county’s Office of Affirmative Action Compliance.”

Apparently, Iliad hates it, too.
