You obviously have a point, but...zackerty wrote:Sequimite...
I think that the subsequent emotiveness of the thread direction has proven my point?
Perhaps some subjects are just for face to face discussions?
I wasn't the one offended, but I don't think talking about the misdeeds of Columbus was the cause of the offense. I think your jumping into a "Happy Canadian Thanksgiving" thread to not only enumerate those misdeeds, but to complain that the US Government calls a US holiday celebrating the anniversary of the first documented discovery of the New World Columbus Day was probably the cause of the offense. If you had chosen instead to simply document Columbus' misdeeds in a thread in OT without the perceived lobbying for political change, the discussion would probably have taken a totally different path.Sequimite wrote:2) There is nothing about the topic which is offensive, per se. Those who claim to be offended have flatly refused to say why.
