Ban on "Brainstorming"

No more brainstorming! Tunbridge Wells Borough Council in Kent has banned the use of term "brainstorming" and replaced it with "thought showers". Why? Because the officials of the council thinks that the term "brainstorming" might offend epileptics or the mentally ill people.

Now, council staff have been sent memos about the change and even sent on training courses to start using the term. But,many people are not happy with the change and thinks that "brainstorming" is a clear and descriptive phrase. Well, only time will tell us about the results of this change.
