I think this is the best shot as far as English idioms.

comment How did “sinister”, the Latin word for “left-handed”, get its current meaning?
@Nemo That is interesting. I wonder which language first normalized the use of "sinister" with the meaning "evil".

Some people are more willing to fight when they're right than others. Others prefer to drop it.

@Questioner hey it's the OP's (and any reader's) call. I said "Don't stop using it", but if they are directly told by their boss not to use it, and they wish to comply, whether it be because they're not very diplomatic or because they're just tired, then a synonym is the way to go. Why risk your standing with petty pedantry?
