in reply to I prefer to:

Is a new way of creating processes called spork().I don't really care what it does or why it's different from fork, as long as it is some trivial feature that is enough for the spork() zealots to get behind it, look everyone else in the eye, and say "Oh yeah, well I'm using spork()."

[choroba]: I don't think they're multiple people. I was told "he or she" sounds old-fashioned and "they" is the way to say it
[pryrt]: Those others were definitely offensive or unequivocably rude, I agree.
[choroba]: (well, it comes from the 14th century, so labelling it as "modern" doesn't seem appropriate)
[Your Mother]: "They" is becoming accepted but it irritates me sometimes. I tend to just pick she or he randomly or try to use "one."
