This reminds me of something that happened to my brother a few years ago on a SW board. In his sig, he had a quote from Spaceballs: "Evil will always triumph, because good is dumb." Someone who had never seen Spaceballs read it, and was offended. They complained to him saying, "How can you believe that? That is a terrible thing to say", something along the lines of that. My brother explained that it was from a movie, and that he doesn't beleive that, he just thinks it's funny. This goes to show that lots of things can be considered "offensive", not just a political or religious view.
