Because I find the term offensive. I bring it up whenever I see it used. I even said that I recognized he was only using a term others use. Why should I not bring it up? It's not meant as an attack on anyone, but to express an opinion. If you're going to add a section as a part of showing appreciation, but name it something that bothers someone, isn't that useful to know?
