I personally think that rawd, kawk and dik are more offensive than poll.

I replied "not offended" to virtually everything but many might consider my response semantics.

I'm not offended by the label applied to any of those things. However, I may well find the thing itself offensive.

I don't find the term "Rap Music" (for example) offensive. I DO find some of the music offensive.

It's not "trash metal", it's "thrash metal".

There are some terms for music styles that are almost never used by the people listening to that style: Easy listening, New Age, Nostalgia.

Only voted "offended" by "Massively multiplayer online role-playing game" - because they're not really RPGs.

Yes, I did in the past and will again play MMORPGs.

For video games you forgot "Button masher," which I do intentionally use as a derogatory term for some games.

Words do not offend me.

But words that aren't very good at describing their intended subject aren't very useful... and useless words offend me.

This was one of the worst polls I've ever seen on BGG. Try finding things that are actually controversial next time.

Great now I'm offended. You can expect a letter from my lawyer in the morning.

It is just my opinion, but in most cases where people CHOOSE to be offended, they just need to GROW-UP! If this offends you, well, you know my opinion.



Have a nice day all!

Radio stations identify themselves as "Easy Listening".

Or maybe it's "Eeeeeeazzzy Liiiiiiistening"

If something you do, enjoy or promote isn't offensive you are most likely existing in a void... or in Elysium... In which case you successfully offended the atheists.

Given the sudden drop in ratings compared to other terms, I figured I might as well leave this here for the people who are unaware that this is an actual movement of punk music. You may still be offended, but at least you'll be informed and offended.
