Well played, sir!

MMB, at but not for OCC

Lee Daniel Crocker asserts that "You shouldn't offend people" and
"People can be hurt by words" are dangerous memes. This position seems
self-contradictory to me.
In philosophy we always have to be careful not to get swallowed up by
the Worm Ourobouros, the snake that bites its own tail.

I agree with Mr. Crocker's other position, that argument is best carried
on as a positive-sum game.
