I'll admit I was indulging in an abstraction. Atreic's comment made me think of a rant I occasionally have, about the discreditation of words. "Discrimination" is one of them. Because certain types of discrimination are bad (eg. social discrimination dependent on race or gender) the word has been discredited, such that exchanging the word 'discrimination' for another words, such as (for example) 'due diligence' allows one to discredit the subject by extension.
I am, indeed, talking about something slightly different from the original post.
*nods* I'm with you there.
