    fairly strongly. But I also realize people can see things from different perspectives and I don't dismiss your perspective just because  I disagree with it. I think there are plenty of ways of opposing the Party and Obama without being in danger of banning. And I do see cases where people hide behind "opposition" and "disagreement" to say really offensive things. But I also see a lot of gray area as well. Generally I feel if someone tells me they find something I say offensive, I rephrase it because if I am making a point, offending them doesn't serve my point and isn't my intention.

    jbou of course offends partly as part of his point, so backing off would kind of ruin the humor.

        I think I have...though maybe I missed something. I think we just disagree somewhat. And I did get massively HR'd (though not threatened with banning) for a diary I wrote that was, very strangely, perceived as anti-Semitic. A simply click on a link would have shown precisely what I was talking about and saved some problems, but I learned you can't rely on people to click a link to get what you are saying...and I am willing to learn that lesson for the sake better communication. I think the HRs were WAY off base, but I recognize that my presentation was at least half the fault.

        Words have meaning and we choose our words (or should be choosing our words) to maximize our impact. So if people interpret it wrong that is at least partly the fault of the person who wrote it.
