Thank you for offering to fix the offending passage(s).
As a Southern(U.S.)-raised borderline-Bubba "Affectionally-Different
Melanin-Impoverished Oppressor-Of-WoFem" 8-}), I'm not the best to offer
advice on "Politically Correct". But if you need a cast of characters, the
common Dramatis Personae are (From _Applied Cryptography_):
Alice First Participant in all the protocols
Bob Second Participant in all the protocols
Carol Participant in the three- and four-party protocols
Dave Participant in the four-party protocols
Mallory Malicious active attacker
Trent Trusted arbitrator
Walter Warden; He guards Alice and Bob in some protocols
Actually, I think the contradictory roles already discussed would work fine.
Alice could be <ACoder at BigSoftware.com> and <Insider at BigSoftware-Blows.org>.
You could have Bob be <Robert at FabuFlowers.com> (Work),
<Choir at BigBabtisChurch.org> and <Bubba at ACT-UP-Atlanta> to show how
including the work address on both keys would link the other two addresses
in a keyserver search.
I'm sure other scenarios can easily be created. (Now to dodge the PFLAG
and GLAAD mob)
