Man, this leaves me confused as to how to respond.  The notion of 
changing anything for the mere mention of political correctness is 
abhorrent, but OTOH, I do hate anything smelling of Naziism.  And, 
finally, although I don't want to see changes in our web page done for 
PC, I really, really dislike the way our web pages are set up now, it's 
just so much harder to get thengs, so much more unpleasant, but I don't 
think I know enough about human-design to be able to give you a 
reasonable explanation of why I dislike our web page setup.

I just do.  Might that be a data point for you?  I betcha a lot of 
others feel just exactly as I do.
