the word blacklist is offensive and should not be used

Description

The word blacklist is used for blocking certain types of file uploads,
please change the term to blocklist, instead of blacklist (it can still be supported
for backwards compatibility, but we shouldn't be using such terms

In my opinion there is nothing offensive at all about the word "blacklist". A change like this, presumable driven by some sort of "PC culture" is a waste of LAS's resources.

I agree with Brad Wood on this issue. Please take the PC culture somewhere else.

mate, it’s already fixed.

if you have a problem with trying to be more inclusive, meh, I don’t care

this is considered best practise in 2020, it's already done, so deal with it

Your dismissive and condescending attitude here is a perfect example of the smug "woke" culture that has no place in Lucee. And your accusation that Andrew doesn't care about being "inclusive" is frankly insulting. It should be obvious that no one is calling for Lucee to not be inclusive here. We disagree with your initial and unproven premise that words that also happen to be a skin color are somehow offensive. Telling us it's "already fixed" shows you either don't understand our issue here or are choosing to repeatedly ignore it.
