    The word "Spastic" is not wrong, it's actually correct.

    Here's a link to Scope, which I can remember being the "Spastics Society".

    It is a medical condition it just isn't very nice to call anybody it

    Some people used the word as a derogatory term which makes it offensive to some people but these security phrases are chosen at random by machine so i dont think any offence was meant,

    "Bullies" used to, and still do.

    It's like kids calling each other "Gay" these days. There is nothing wrong with the word gay, or being one. It's the intent that has changed.

    Congrats on becoming a "Solar flare" very shortly.

    thank you! :-D

    Yea they called it scope as the word spastic became commonly used as offensive launguage. I guess those growing up now will have little exposure to people being called such names.
