Anything-o-crat titles are generally kind of silly when there are perfectly 
good words like steward or cook.  It's kind of like "smalls" is silly 
because they had a perfectly good word...children.  And ring belts are 
unnecessary because our medieval ancestors had a solution for 

I've had this discussion with a number of people who are like-minded and if 
my memory serves me correctly, it's not at all that terms like autocrat, 
feastocrat, troll, smalls, or dragon or the use of ring belts as examples 
offend.  It's just unnecessary, because there are much more correctly 
appropriate terms or items.
