Brainstorming Ban

You've got to wonder if the people at Ireland's Department of Enterprise, Trade, and Investment (DETI) were meeting at the local pub when they decided to ban Irish civil servants from using the term "brainstorming" as politically incorrect. Since brainstorming is possibly offensive to people with mental disorders, DETI recommends using the term "thought-showers".

This is absolutely ridiculous. People need to grow up and get over themselves. If someone truly and honesty finds the term offensive, that is their problem. If we allow this to continue, it will get to the point very quickly where no one can say anything. I mean, now DETI is going to have to ban the Irish from reading my blog, cause not only did I use "brainstorming", I also implied they were drunks.
