    I don't really get why folks who believe they have a right not to be offended by words participate in a discussion forum. While I try to maintain a modicum of decorum and reserve, I have used sarcasm in a few posts. My set-up method is often assailed with somewhat caustic replies and yet I have never been personally offended or injured in any way.
    What's the deal with some folks getting so self-rightously butt hurt over differing opinions and remarks?
    Can you show us on the doll where the words injured you?

    I can't speak for other institutions or localities, but U.S. colleges + universities are absolutely teaching students they have a right not to be offended. Their own subjective interpretation holds sway, and it's created an environment of walking on eggshells and extreme fragility. I work at a college and I worry that we're not at all preparing students to handle the real world. But then again, these students are going on to shape the "real world" and I think it's those results that the OP is observing.

    I voted no. The reason is it would devolve into a mud slinging bundle of nothing within minutes. Nothing of substance would get said, and it would just be a giant waste of time. Words won't hurt me, but boredom would kill me.

    Then you'd be free to leave and lack of participation would kill the forum, yes?

    I never said anything about not following Strat Talk's rules. Where did you get that? I asked why anyone who is offended by words would participate in a discussion forum and would you participate in one that allows free speech?

    And he replied that anyone who is offended by the owner's rules is free to find another forum.
