This thread is branching off from this thread.
In that discussion I took issue with a link posted to an article that I felt was offensive. A moderator and one other poster agreed with me, but the person who posted the link continued to use language and terminology that I found offensive. As I comented on this it was brought to my attention that my expression of that opinion was counterproductive and offensive. While I disagree with that, I thought it best to move the discussion to a new thread, as one fellow babbler suggested, so that that thread might return to its original intention.
