For the best, I hope.
Ubuntu-Women got subscribed to a LP bug regarding nmap. Browsing through the provided link (see References), you can read this:
To cultivate a professional image, we long ago capitalized all references to God in error message text and also reworded all instances of “fucked up” to “borked”. We have now also changed this warning message: “TCP/IP fingerprinting (for OS scan) requires root privileges. Sorry, dude.” A woman reported that it was “highly offensive and sexist”, that “times have changed and many women now use your software”, and “a sexist remark like the one above should have no place in software.”
Although I do not read the “Sorry dude” as offensive or sexist, it was clearly exclusive, supposing only cool guys would use the application and read the warning. Good point.
