Fine Frank, you're right.
I feel awful about myself.
You do realize though, that words can adjust themselves to the entire situation, right?
If you're for instance, driving down the highway and someone cuts you off, and you happen to say to yourself "What an idiot" I think if you wrote that here, people would understand you truly didn't think that person had an IQ between 0 and 20, but would know that person did a really dumb, unacceptable thing, but overall that might have been a really nice person.
People can, and do use words all the time in writing with no expectation that reader is going to obsess on some word or phrase that was written to express an overall feeling/mood etc.
Would it make you feel better Frank, if I had the ability to go back and change every single post I made, changing the word idiot to:
"Some misguided person who made a poor decision, thereby proving they were only human, just as you or I are. Even though I respect this person as a human with rights and self worth, I feel the action they took in this specific incidence was a poor decision, and had a high likelihood of producing negative outcomes, such as death."
Please Frank, feel free to go back and read my posts, inserting the above instead of idiot.
That way, we can get your obsession with one word out of the way, and perhaps think of ways this "protest" could have been something productive and positive.
