I used to like that TV programme where a bunch of experts would come to someone with a beat up old car and transform it into a hotrod. Perhaps I shouldn't watch it any more ?

Can we rename Oil Seed Rape please?
 
Why not reclaim the word? Originally it meant "to make beautiful" and has been used for over 400 years in various ways before the current usage which is quite close to the original. Are we to allow 1970's Americanisms to dictate language for all time?
