This is the first I’ve ever heard of “blade” as being frowned upon, in my 12 years on CT.
Do you have any examples of discussions where this is the case? Blade has pretty much been the standard design name for that type of sign both on & off CT for decades. If you Google “Blade Sign Cinema Treasures”, the term comes up in many comments within theatres listed on CT. Welcome to CT by the way. Since it appears you’ve just recently joined last September.
