This is good, but it connotes that the entity will eventually triumph, like a "Cinderella Story".

I like "persona non grata" best so far. "bastard children" might be too colorful for a corporate blog post. Thanks!

@Chris This blog post isn't about a person. It's about an aspect of software development, so no feelings are going to get hurt. I'm really trying to be sensitive to people who may have been adopted or raised by a parent other than their own.

Mulling this over in my own head, I think a politically correct equivalent might be "Rodney Dangerfield" (as in "he never gets any respect").

I don't think the term "red-headed" is meant to be derogatory towards red-haired people, it's just that a red haired person would stick out as different (at least genetically) in most family photos.
