I have been aware of this potential issue since it was on the ballot. I
actually hesitated to raise this issue worrying it might cause un-wanted
debate between members. I basically thought voting process would filter
this kind of controversial word. Then, I saw that this name was #3, and
thought I did not need to raise the issue since it was not on the top.

As Thierry said, I should have raised the issue back then, not at this last
moment. I sincerely apologize for that. I have my lesson learned throughout
this case.

BTW, I have to say that I am really happy that we are able to resolve this
kind of difficult issue as a community, respecting each other.
