I find the use of illness or injury as a derogative analogy to be
offensive, and most emphatically so in this context, given that the
internet is increasingly being used as a vehicle to help accident
victims cope with brain and spinal chord injuries.
Suppose you woke up flat on your back in a hospital bed tomorrow
morning, after an auto accident had left you brain-damaged: How long
do you think it would be before you were itching to get connected to
the net again, just to make sure your head was still working?
And how do you think it would make you feel then to find
"brain-damaged" being used in the Debian Linux mailing lists to mean
"lacking in clarity"?
