Of course, now I just have this mental image of people going around asking everyone "Was that meant to be offensive?" like little socially lost puppies, which is I'm sure not what you meant at all but very amusing in my head.
Yep, not what I meant. I meant people need to ask to make sure they understand what the other person is saying instead of assuming. As you know, it can be hard to interpret what someone means when typing. I've asked many times for clarification to make sure I am understanding where they are coming from.
