Silent Running reports that an Irish Government Department has banned the word “brainstorming” because the term might offend people with epilepsy as well those with brain tumors or brain injuries.
I would be suspecting this was a joke, except I know the same insanities happen here. One NZ Government agency discussed banning the term “bullet points” on the basis that they have a violent and pro-war connotation. And again no, that is not a joke – the preferred term now is “dot points”.
Let’s all scream together in frustration.
