I don't agree with censorship at all, and I don't believe that is what is at stake here. If Edwin was wanting to make a point, then he would have been perfectly entitled to do so, and I would have said nothing more on the subject. I made an observation and I assume that Edwin understood what I was saying. I agree that people can (and do!) complain about anything, but that is not what I was doing, I wasn't complaining, I was making an observation. My thoughts were twofold; firstly, would someone affected by the tagline be offended by the comment (that in fairness added nothing to the actual aticle)? And would Edwin (who I am certain meant nothing by the tagline) want to unwittingly offend someone, and then face critiscim for having done so?
Maybe I think things to deeply, but I was simply attempting to be considerate.
Oh certainly don't get me wrong I wasn't saying what you said was wrong and due to the proximity of certain events it was probably the thing to do. I just don't want these guys and gals who are generally quite witty (would it be better if I left the 'generally quite' off
?) taking twice as long to write everything because they have to carefully comb through everything they've written to take out anything that might offend.
Quite how offensive you'd have to be to outdo a game in which you beat people to death with sex aids I don't know. I personally find it hard to tell how offensive something is as very little offends me. Hitting me with a wet fish might do the job but I'm fairly sure I could only muster up incredible amounts of indifference.
Edit: It might look something like this
