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 
clearly meant.

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*.
