Oh, it has changed. And it keeps changing, that's how it goes with
social norms, culture etc.
Mark has already explained that at least some of the terms are
clearly offensive. This offensivenes may be more obvious to him as
a native speaker, especially given that one needs some background to
understand what this program tried to "parodize" and where some of
the terms are derived from.
Why can't we accept that a program which may be well over 30 years old,
hasn't seen any update since 20 years, is more or less lost since some
time and has no technical value (it's just some parody of a text filter)
can be removed from the tree? Anyone who needs this port can install it
on their own.
