While it is common to say "hello" it also is troubling, though less troubling than most of facets of the newspeech language. Please use the newspeech equivalents to avoid triggering anyone whenever possible.
"Hello" is etymologically related to "to fetch" out of "Old High German hala, hola, emphatic imperative of halon, holon." Fetching is a degrading act of subservience and reenforces classist and patriarchal power structures. Greetings, of all things, should not reinforce culturally inherited misogyny.
