wiping out Amalek

Parshat T'Tzaveh

This weeks question at the shabbos table:

Are we supposed to remember Amalek or forget Amalek?

The Torah says remember Amalek and what they did but then says to wipe out memory of Amalek. Which is it? Wouldn't wiping out their memory be best accomplished by not talking about them?

Great question never thought of that and sounds so obvious.
