Here's another controversy for a world

that doesn't have half enough.
The word, in case you didn't know is
Get ready, software ...
********. We're nothing if not bold here on SE. ******** means BTW what happens to the spacecraft's progress when the retro rockets are fired.
As it happens, I have some experience with this. When I was teaching, the kids had two favorite words for things and people they didn't like: gay [*** rhymes with neigh, software] and the aforementioned r*******].
Both were discouraged by the school and me because ... do you really need to have it explained? It meant a chance to train the children of trolls and flamers out of their parents' bad habits. [Can you imagine an adult responding to a politician's lies or a terrorist's attack with, "Oh, that's so JW!" :-)]
Anyway, we were ordinary folk in a small-town classroom, not celebs with trophy wives, so the correction was made without trolling, shaming, dissing or beatings with a whip. [That would be so Catholic.]
Joke, Steven.
Say, anyone have Mr Harvey's email? I have "just a word" for him. Read it in Huckleberry Finn.

We can still write gay, but the "Harvey word" needs defining. The retro rocket one is © by me; find your own.
