I understand why people use it, but ... Google Chrome's browser current domination isn't looking good for the "web"... for various reasons... :?

a documentary that dares to say what no one else will —
that we are losing the battle to stop climate change on planet earth because we are following leaders who have taken us down the wrong road —
selling out the green movement to wealthy interests and corporate America.

Let's talk about the politically correct Locusts: https://www.bbc.com/news/resources/idt-79cb45e7-42ce-4c06-8912-bd07d2c909be
I've saved one in our garden before mowing knee-deep grass. Looks this species will survive while we make ourselves extinct within the next 50+ years ...

How to view the locusts in 3D or Augmented Reality (AR)
You can view and explore the 3D locusts on your desktop or mobile device. For the full AR experience you will need a mobile device. The AR experience uses the latest technology and may need an updated version of your browser. We can't guarantee it will work on all browsers.

Sure, there are still workplaces where master/slave is very acceptable. Support your local dominatrix :) !

Disclaimer: not saying I am for or against, as I don't believe I want to discuss politics here. :? :? :?
but in terms of black or white, lightness and darkness, I think historically... it is religious in nature, as it possibly relates as to whether or not there is "a lack of [God's] light." ?

Perhaps blocklist and rightlist are a homonymic-ish compromise, albeit perhaps inappropriate. :?

For the love of god you can't tell me that saying allowlist instead of whitelist limits your ability to express yourself or criticize twitter.
If anything saying allowlist is expanding your options and freedom since it is removed from the racist- undertones white and blacklist contains.

I don't actually think you want to defend those racist undertones either.
Do you just not want to change? When such a change as it is presented here happens suddenly it can seem a bit scary.
But it will still take a long time until the natural process of it changing happens. So don't be afraid of that.

Still I don't see how removing the words "Master/Slave" could make a workplace more inclusive.
People have to have and use a lot of freedom in shaping their own private lifes to make this specific term a concern.

i wasnt commenting on the twitter platform directly.. that list was from their engineering team, probably for their internal docs and codebase. certainly they aren't going to censor their users who tweet on their platform (yet?)

i was commenting more on the culture war, that they've fallen prey to, with the orwell reference as the likely end game if this nonsense isn't curbed
Every social media platform already applies its own terms of services on a daily basis, but currently these terms are applied unevenly. If your utterances are deemed "newsworthy", you get a pass.
If you look at how Twitter's engineering team came to these new policies, you can see that their process was started months ago by Black employees, and just was accelerated by recent events. I don't see how you could curb that, if they have the support of Twitter's leadership and key advertizers - except by cutting freedoms of speech - politically. So everyone should be careful what they wish for.
After all, cancel culture is really nothing that is limited to the so-called woke people. I am old enough to remember (conservative) people blowing up their Keurigs or burning their sneakers, or even people throwing hissy fits at the supermarket over wearing a mask, meant to protect the freedom and health of others.

To quote Rev. Peter Marshall, former US Senate chaplain:
May we think of freedom, not as the right to do as we please, but as the opportunity to do what is right.

In this case here, my point was mainly that using quotes from fictional sources - completely ripped from historical, political, literary and personal context - feels like fanning the conflict even more. It doesn't prove anything and feels at best random and wildly exaggerated, if not taken straight from the online culture warrior's meme repository.

PS: That said, I personally wouldn't like to see this culture war extended to these forums. Of course, it can be discussed, like seen here, but aren't there already enough (too many) online and offline battlefields?
