^Don't agree with you on this one GR. We all have a responsibility for what we say either verbally or in print. Sometimes a person can go too far in jest & only realise they've over stepped a line when offence is taken. If you stop caring about the affect (effect? Don't have a dictionary handy!) your words/actions have on others then it breeds bad feeling which is no achievement, there's already plenty of that in this world.
I'm not going to disagree that folk have a responsibility for what they say and write, but there's more to it than that. Firstly, being 'offended' is a very personal thing, pretty much unique to each individual, a line they draw in the sand where they and only they choose to draw it. Making it a very inexact if not an impossible science for anyone else to tell with any reasonable degree of certainty that everything they say or write won't 'offend' somone. All anyone can do is best guess on the issue, and all anyone else observing can do is consider whether anyone claiming to be 'offended' is doing so with good reason and justifiably, or whether their expectations were unrealistic all things considered, and/or they were being overly sensitive to reasonable comments. Both of the above are also going to be heavily influenced by those individual's own line in the sand of what they feel to be offensive as well.
In the case in hand here, while I have no issue with the OP's right to be 'offended' if that's what they want to be, I believe the 'offence' they have taken is born out of having unrealistic expectations of what it is reasonable to expect in the circumstances they created, and unrealistic expectations as what constitutes reasonable comment. So any 'offence' they may have taken, is down to them to deal with, not the responsibility of the folk who made what I believe were reasonable and fair comment.
The OP put material out there to an unknown number of random anonymous members of the public worldwide, the reaction to it by those who chose to look at it almost certainly covered the whole spectrum from loving it, through indifference to loathing it. Some chose to express their opinion/critique of it, which shouldn't have been unexpected given this is a forum.
Yes, the content and quality of the material was criticised in some comments, which is reasonable and fair when you throw anything in front of the public. Nobody criticised or was derogatory to the OP on a personal level as far as I can see, which wouldn't have been reasonable or fair. Or thats where I draw my line in the sand anyway. Hence my conclusion, that while the OP has every right to feel 'offended' if they chose to, that 'offence' is the responsibility of their own unreasonable expected reaction(s, and their's to deal with, rather than anything anyone posted to this thread.
