After discussing the situation internally with staff and volunteers, we've decided to alter the title and moderator note on the General Topics thread.
While it was our intention only to neutrally mirror the language under discussion by members of the site, several members have made it clear that they feel that moderators using the phrase give it a level of official approval that was particularly upsetting to them. As well, using the phrase in the title of a thread gave it prominence in the board index, making it unavoidable even for those who would choose not to read the thread.
Because the existing Site Talk thread on this topic has started to reach the length where many people (including some staff and moderators) are unable to open it, we're going to lock that thread, but will leave this one open.
