Upon observing this, we assumed that it has now been blocked on the hot list and we'd like to know why, since:
- it's a term, not necessarily replaceable without losing meaning
- it is not profanity
- the question is legitimate and on-topic
- if it was blocked to punish click-baiting, it contradicts the treatment of arqade questions.
Preventing the use a technical term may cause issues in legitimate questions, like the one linked. Regardless of whether this was a punishment for a provocative title, it is a double standard and not in agreement with the culture of stackexchange as a whole - thus, it is a punishment for rules that the poster was not aware of.
It would seem that there is a degree of cultural sensitivity that can be offended by question titles. If this was done to prevent such offense, why was this solution chosen instead of allowing users to pick what sites to include or exclude from the hot questions list, as it appears to them?
