This analogy is incorrect. Someone is whining that you are on their
foot, while you are not on their foot.

RSPAMD isn't racist, but it's (unintentionally, historically) using
terminology that perpetuates racial bias.
The simple answer is to move to allowlist and denylist. It's a
relatively simple change. We should do it. The deprecated terms can
remain for compatibility.
Please don't start in with "well actually"-ing and arguing that people
are being overly sensitive, or it's not meant like that, or whatever
lame conservative snowflake response you want to jump in with -- that
behavior *is* actually racist.
When someone yells, "Ow! You're standing on my foot!", you get off their
foot. You don't say, "well, actually, I'm really only on the edge of
your shoe and probably only your large toe; let's have a discussion
about the merits of me moving my foot." You get off their fucking foot.
