You aren't allowed to use the term "brainstorm" any more! Didn't you Get The Memo?
Mr Political Correctness - that chap in the dark basement, permanently detached from real life and real people, who's job it is to take offense at words and phrases on behalf of others - deemed that word potentially offensive to people with epilepsy.
This is the same chap who thinks I shouldn't use the word "wife" when referring to the lady I married, the love of my life - because I might offend gay people. I am supposed to say "partner" or somesuch instead. Ironically, *I* am offended at the idea of calling her my "partner" since to me, that sounds like what you'd use for a short-term, informal or business relationship... instead of the permanent relationship of love and dedication that it actually is. BAH.
I have some friends who are gay, and after hearing this I actually asked them what they thought. They thought it was as ridiculous as I did. Shame Mr Political Correctness doesn't bother to ask minority groups what they think, before issuing his decrees :-P
