#18160 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Rename RSOS to something less inappropriate

RSOS is an inappropriate name; it sounds like "assholes", and SOS is a signal of distress. "Rendezvous" has sexual connotations. "Single Onion Services" carries connotations of being single, servitude, and onions, which in turn have connotations of tears. We should rename these to something better, or failing that, something else.

Any suggestions? My main confusion with RSOS is that I can never remember what it means.

To short-circuit potential negative publicity resulting from this ticket's description I remind readers of Poe's Law. Were the description not made in jest there would of course be legitimate concerns that the Tor Project is enabling psychologically maladaptive behavior by staff when it should instead be referring them to professional help.

Finally admitting that 0.3.??? was a euphemism for Tor: unspecified all along.
