This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
Hmm... Two down-votes so far and no commentary, so I'll toss my opinion in on the off-chance that folks agree/disagree.
I don't feel strongly about rectangles - yes, the non-plural version was removed, but so far as I can tell it's usually actually used to refer to... well... quadrilateral shapes with four right angles.
rect is a bit more problematic, since it's the name of a data type on many platforms. Which would be fine, except there are a lot of different structures with the exact same name - oh, and it also seems to be used to refer to rectangles in some cases, and in one case was used by someone determined to put spaces in an API function name.
