Using the name "Yoga" for your software is cultural appropriation. Facebook should not do it.

It is equivalent of naming a sports team Rednecks.




Is Yoga a derogatory term? I've never heard it used in such a way, so I think that's quite the false equivalence.


Does not matter. It is not a good idea to use other people's cultural heritage to name "things". In fact the downvotes here suggest how deeply prejudiced and racist people are on HN.

Is it fair to generalize like this across all the members of HN? You might argue that this is the case for those that down-voted, but everyone?


If a comment has down-votes it is fair to say people who did not upvote despite reading supported the action of the downvoters.


Okay, I can understand that point of view. Even that only includes those who saw the discussion, right?
