Apparently, you can no longer use BC (Before Christ) or AD (Ad Deum or After Christ).  This might offend non-Christians like Muslims, Buddhists and Atheists.  The new correct term is BCE (Before Common Era) and CE (Common Era).  Another example is Chairman has been changed to Chairperson or Chair.  Gender neutrality is also in vogue.  Hooray for Filipinos!  We are ahead of everyone.  The native language does not really distinguish "she" and "he".  Male forum members might be referred to as "she" when Filipinos speak English. No offense.  It is simply something lost in translation.  

"common" is an accepted term?  maybe for now... when I are grew up in the 60's we used "common" as a adjective to describe things that I'm sure wouldn't fly today
