People take offense at words designed to be offensive, and no one would bother
to use such words as fuck if they weren't offensive. You chose your words to
cause offense, and then get all pissy if people actually take offense. Of
course, it's not only the constant use of obsenities, it's the open hostility
and personal attacks. Form can never been completely seperate from content,
and your form tints and frequently overwhelms any neutral, non-hostile message.
