i guess there was a lot of flack because of an error message saying that the database was acting "retarded" at one time retarded was a general term bundling together all sorts of neurological disorders that we didn't understand. it has long since passed into the vernacular to mean just plain stupid. to think that the use of the word by someone who was born long after its meaning had evolved is actually a throwback to its archaic meaning is just, well, retarded.
