On this page:

        https://lists.postgresql.org/manage/

In the section "Manage email addresses", the text reads in part:

        You can also blacklist your own email address from the lists.

"Blacklist" is an increasingly disfavored term.  I think "block" or "disallow" are both reasonable alternatives.

I'm moving this from -advocacy to -www, since that's a more appropriate list to discuss the change.

There is already work in progress to get this replaced. There are some backend considerations as well which is why it's not just a search/replace (and not fixing those would make it inconsistent), but it's been on the list for a while to get sorted out so it's definitely on people's radar.

Interesting; suggests the efficiency of achieving as much equity as possible at the first opportunity, to avoid the "replacement" requirement later. A quick look at the mailing lists, "pg-women" existence also indicative of a historical problem. At least acknowledgement to begin action is better than denialism, so this is good to read.
