Default Civil discussions aren't offensive

It's the subtle and indirect ways that imply that any member's relationship dynamic describes your very negative opinion of the label you're adversed to. To be blunt, it comes off as manipulative and controlling -- even if you think you are being clear by adding clauses of plausible denial -- from my perspective, it wasn't the use of "BS" or later "bullshit" that's offensive.

It's not disagreeing or stating that a one person's dynamic wouldn't work for them, it's the subtle indirect ways you choose to discuss (read debate) and the plausible denial that detracts from a legitimate discussion.
