whining about it on a message board only gives people another reason (besides laziness--which is generally why i use it) to type it. I work with a bunch of non-natives and most use it amongst themselves. Its an abbreviated form of a long name, absolutely not derogatory in any way. If anything there's an undertone of pride in feeling familiar enough to use it.
