The Borg has officially pronounced that the Man should not be referred to as the Stick.
Well, not quite. Although there was one upper crusty that passed on to the Rangers that use of the term needed to stop. Having never used the term myself I (and others) immediately started referring to it as 'The Stick' as soon as the we caught wind of this 'suggestion' and a good number of us continue to do so. I really
don't fucking like the idea of anyone
telling me (or others) what and what not to say. It's the slippery slope of group think/Newsppeak that if not checked can be a portent of a myopic, lock-step, group mentality that I want no part of and am all too willing to rail against.
