“It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more... than a whine. 'I find that offensive.'

There are going to be plenty of overly sensitive types giving that "alert" button a real work out. Hope ya'll got lots of cookies.
Some of the 'regular posters' and I am not pointing out who, I think debate just for a good debate. And look for logical backup to statements. I don;t think they are being mean. When you answer in a high profile thread, you need to be ready to defend, with logic and links. That is one of the reasons why I like this site so much.
