Linus Torvalds Has Merged Inclusive-Terminology Rules Into The Linux Kernel Git Tree. Words like whitelist and blacklist will now longer be allowed in the kernel source code.

Today marks the first time I've looked up a Chinese word in Urban Dictionary. 😁

白左, "white left", apparently means naive western left-wing do-gooder.
The "[foreigners will have a harder time understanding passlist than whitelist so this breeds inequality]" is a real galaxy-brain take.

>new usage

Not as bad as it could've been.
At least they won't go rename all pty slaves to... what? pty secondaries? pty performers?

@LinuxReviews What a douchebag, like that's going to solve anything. It's just virtue signalling.
