Perhaps it's simply a matter of intent. Someone pointed earlier to
the fact that there will always be *content* that offends.
There will always be the temptation to TAKE offense where none is
So, perhaps it's just a matter for civilized lists to make it a rule
not to take public offense where it cannot be conclusively
demonstrated that offense was *intended*.
