    I Find This Very Irritating

    When I answer a question, I certainly may not agree with the values, morals, or the very nature of the question.  I may criticize or answer in a way that some people do not like.  I am not talking about the asker, they are not the problem.  On a couple of occasions...

    No Offense

    The last thing I want to do is offend anyone.  I may say things and you may think (general speaking), I'm meaning it in a bad way and in fact, I'm not.

    Really!

    I think I offend people quite often. I've never really thought about. I don't talk to people very often so I don't think that helps. Although sometimes I just don't care if I offend someone or not. Most of the time I try not to though. But I think that's part of my problem. I...

    I will not censor my beliefs or opinions, but I will not be disrespectful about expressing them. I don't name-call or use personal attacks, I just state my opinion. If you disagree, I am fine with that. We can't all feel the same way about every issue. If I offend you, it is...

    All the time it seems. People just don't understand my sense of humor and it really doesn't bother me. If I offend you then perhaps you just need to relocate.

    My Intent Is Never to Offend Or Hurt Someone

    It's not written in stone. I have found that it is far too easy to offend some of the people on EP. I never intend to offend, but I'm often accused of being offensive. Perhaps some people are overly sensitive, but I have my own theory. I think, depending on what kind of...
