When I was at university there was a movement to end "r*****ed" as a word. Anyway, the people saying "r*****ed" nowadays are often trashy twits anyhow - mostly neer do wells, not the type that would go to a university or at least, seriously attend one.

He means the word, r etarded or re tard. It took me a minute to figure that out. But yeah. Even when I was high school, it was frowned on and a lot of my friends really didn't use it either. Anyone who said it got into trouble with teachers and school staff. It was kind of thrown in with profanity.

However, they are going too far when the activists want it removed from engineering documentation when it is used in regard to limiting engine power or RPMs.

Most words over here are thrown about rather flippantly. No one really cares to them anymore. Even when it’s the See you next Tuesday word. That gets thrown about as a term of endearment.
