Nothing is wrong with the word "doosh."  But given that there are now
pre-adults that play this game, and it could be mis-associated with human
sexuality, or even abortion.  I don't want to see little advid 6th to 9th
Netrek players, saying "doosh" in their schools or at home.  Adults could
loose focus on the teamwork and hand-eye coordination that a game let
Netrek teaches, and just see that Netrek teaches their children this word.
I guess if it was off by default it wouldn't not be a problem.
