I just stumbled over this change (second revision):

http://stackoverflow.com/revisions/17225363/2

and I'm wondering what the sense of it could be because I never thought that scrape is an offending term.

(I'm not concerned about removing the extract tag here)

Woah... since when did "scrape" become offensive? –  Mysticial Jun 22 '13 at 0:16

It’s not an offensive term. It does, however, contain “crap”. Michael Myers… what horribly restrictive censoring extension are you using? D: –  U2744 SNOWFLAKE Jun 22 '13 at 0:19

Whoah, whoah, whoah... let's watch the language in the title, there could be minors around. –  LittleBobbyTables Jun 22 '13 at 0:21

@minitechη I find that censoring extension to be offensive. :P –  Mysticial Jun 22 '13 at 0:23

Yeah, this is just what a dirty Scraper would say. You're all a bunch of scraping scrapers. –  JonW Jun 22 '13 at 0:57

Looks like @MichaelMyers was accepted into the Jeff Atwood school of newspeak. –  CodesInChaos Jun 22 '13 at 19:25
    
Well, it only took me a year and five months to discover this question (which I'm a little miffed about - one's first Meta callout should be an exciting occasion!). Tim Stone has the best guess; this was indeed completely unintentional on my part. –  mmyers Nov 19 at 21:32
