I don't see that anything has really changed - I guess you are just pushing the point home that we run the risk of getting into trouble if we're perceived as baiting or picking on a particular group. Precisely. I think I've said something very close to that in another thread, and I know I have in a PM somewhere (not that you could have known about the PM, obviously). Its less of a change than it is a reinforcement/reminder, both to users and to the moderators, because it is a problem that is worse now than I've ever seen it previously. However, the issue is that people who get offended easily will be bothered by both expressions, and they need to learn the difference. Well, its both. Those who offend easily do need to learn the difference and just ignore it, but I've also seen more than a few statements recently that have crossed the line. I hope the MS will support my right to hold a personal opinion as readily as they'd edit something which is inppropriate. Certainly, you have a right to have your opinion. That said, sometimes an opinion can also be a flame, and that's when its a problem. Though you're an experienced enough user that knowing the difference is not usually a problem.
