Well, I feel like a real ass. Yesterday I sent out a message to you here the list that prominently featured the word spaz.
I woke up to an inbox full of kind replies mostly from people in the UK letting me know the history of the word and that it is highly insensitive.
One person said it is on par with the n-word. This is upsetting to me and I apologize for upsetting you.
I will be more sensitive with my word choice in the future. Thank you to everyone who wrote in.
