Lindsey is trying to promote an inclusive and safe environment by removing derogatory comments. The word was removed, which was the ideal outcome. We understand that non-native English speakers may not recognize the negative implications of the word "obesity", and appreciate cooperation in editing the choice of words.

That being said, the Dev Community should be a place void of criticism, shaming, hateful speech, etc. This fell, although it may have been unintentional, underneath that umbrella. Thus, I applaud Lindsey for speaking up.

There is no need for you to be pejorative.
