Of course I could, but I do not feel like the effort to change 
nomenclature is either beneficial or worth taking for granted the 
requests of some people on Twitter - as the slave to peer authority I am 
- given how much it affects documentation, code, comments, general 
environment of the projects themselves. I enjoy being surrounded by 
people much smarter than I am when it comes to the mailing list here. 
Let's keep it that way and not derange ourselves into meaningless 
blabber from social media.

What I did notice over time however that most of the projects affected 
are also those who do have to maintain a good public image, usually 
corporations. Meanwhile projects such as Opal 
<https://github.com/opal/opal/issues/941> and recently Rubocop 
<https://github.com/rubocop-hq/rubocop/issues/8091> as well were not. 
The latter one I'd like to draw attention to. The maintainer clearly 
didn't ask for this and asked everyone who shamed him, why are you doing 
this? None of the complainers were affiliated to the project at all. 
Chances are that they weren't even using it and just searched for 
projects with the name "cop" in it instead. These are not the people I 
want to support in my effort to end racism, which I /do/ support, and 
quite heavily so.
