I for one don't feel offended rather amused these terms are still
around. But so is the term 'Ami' in german. Wars seem to have a lot of
influence on language.
But I should feel downright offended by the fact that a Leica-related
(see, I cut the corner) List is located in the US and not in Germany.
Schade, schade.
