I don't usually comment on these sorts of forum threads and I did think, before typing, that I might be criticised for going against the consensus view on this thread. Obviously though, what I write - what anyone writes - can be picked over and commented on, poked fun at even, in some cases.
But then I thought, how could anyone be offended? It's all healthy debate and a polite airing of views. It's only my opinion and I thought I had been quite balanced. I can see how some people would find the name offensive, especially those with children, strong religious or moral views etc, but personally I find it OK and I imagine others are OK with it too. IMHO.
