I'll bet that until it was brought up NOBODY remembered that this was in the 
man pages.  It's been there since 1987 - not exactly a recent addition.  I'll 
bet that if this really WAS an issue, that it would have come up sometime in 
the last 14 years - and as far as I've been able to find it hasn't.   

There are always going to be things in the world that SOMEONE finds offensive.  

My vote - if this ever came to a vote - would be to leave the man page package 

Question for people who run other distributions and UNIX versions - is this 
man page included in them? or have other distros deleted the "offensive" 

Just my $0.02
