About sarcasm with company/software/service names:

**Personally**, I think it's dangerous to use these. If you need to say
the original name, just say it. There is a context in which I support
and use this sarcasm (as long as it's followed by the original name):
protest materials.

E.g.: Signs or t-shirts saying "Don't use Pay-Pal-Enemy" ("Pal" is
striked) or "PayPal is your PayEnemy" or anything else.

But in discussions, I think it's good to have clear communication
because there is a high chance of finding someone that doesn't know the
term and might think it refers to something else  (and thus missing the
point of the sarcasm: to entice people not to use/support it), unless of
course we use the sarcasm accompanied by the original name.
