Personnel want replaced because it was offensive to employees they deal with, it was replaced because people in the field wanted to more recognition within organizations, and being seen as managing important assets was seen as a way to gain that recognition.

Why was it offensive?

I'm saying it wasn't offensive, the issue was unrelated to that.

Small typo in your original post: I think you said want instead of wasn't. That may have led to some confusion.
