    Rant Offence and apologies

    Oh my god I can't take it anymore....

    It's everyday now. Several times a day sometimes.

    Someone says something (often completely harmless), and a bunch of people take massive offence to it - either because they're a bit too sensitive, or they purposefully misinterpret the issue so that they can feign offence.

    The 'offender' then makes a swift 'heartfelt' message where they 'unreservedly apologise'. You can tell they usually don't mean it, but are just saying it because their PR people say it'll make the issue go away.

    It's all the time now. Offence everywhere - as a race we will surely stop talking altogether in years to come.

    I might call someone a massive cunt tomorrow and ask them whether they are offended or refreshed by my comment

    Steve Hughes fucking nails this.

    You're right BTW, every cunt gets offended at something these days. We're becoming an over sensitive bunch of wankers.

    Seems to me as well if you want to be in the news, you need to have been abused. Or be an abuser.

    Fkin media is full of this shit these days.

    I'm all for going back to grunting, its how I communicate with my missus whenever she goes off on one.

    You are clearly on Facebook. Fuck em all.
    I too am on FB since I discovered I can contact my older children faster than any other method.
    I now use it simply to troll and call people out at every moment. Join groups that annoy and kick the fuck off.
    I am not in the least bit racist but I love to join the groups that are full of racists and let them think I am onside whilst pulling every post apart. Funny as fuck .
    Also join local groups that are extremly opinionated and cause major arguments between elderly residents who clearly should not be online :-)

    Thanks to piggzy

    I was recently invited into a "community" group on FB for our estate where we live. Turns out it's a bunch of cunts talking about what colour bin day it is, and has anyone seen their missing cat.

    I can really get some biters with that.

    As Larry David has astutely observed, it’s not worth leaving your house. And in the digital world it’s even worse. I don’t post anywhere but here, as I usually upset someone. And I now often avoid posting here too, as I tend to upset some of the more sensitive members.

    That being said, this push back against so called ‘political correctness’, and the undoubted over sensitivity of some, is also being used as an excuse for bigotry and racism. It seems the more extreme one side becomes, the other side have to match it.

    As a species we’re entering a critical stage in our development. The confluence of certain technologies will potentially give both groups and individuals unimagined power, including the power to destroy. And I fear that we simply don’t have the emotional intelligence to keep the genie in the bottle.
