Have you ever felt the need to refrain from posting something to SoH because you were afraid that it would offend someone?
All the time.
No, I do not censor myself.
Definitely yes. I have done that. I have also avoided posting when I know it will result in me being attacked.
on multiple occasions. i don't think offending others accomplishes anything.
Many times. I want to call most people @ssholes, but my brain is just like "no".
Lol I like the new status/location :P
Not out if political correctness, but I don't want to offend someone. There are subjects I am not knowledgeable enough in to ask or answer without offending someone.
No, but if that were the case, there is a midget SoH user who wants to kick my...ankle.
No, not because I was *afraid* it would offend someone. Because I was pretty sure it *would* offend them, and that's not my intent.
I'm currently withholding a poll that would probably make me lose a lot of followers.
Ooo can you let me in on the secret?
Ooo me too..
I'm afraid not. It's the kind of poll that would piss off a whole lot of people.
Is there a milder version you can post?
No, it's the kind of poll that would lose meaning if I toned it down.
Oh :/ so you got us all curious and then you aren't gonna tell us?!
Is it over religion?
Nope. What's the fun in that? :)
Jollyman, you betcha.
Oh so it's fun. Hmmm idk. Is it more joke like?
It's quite serious. It's inspired by a Christian that I had a discussion with this morning. Lets just say that he wasn't the kindest person I've ever talked to. For example, he kept saying that starving Africans are lazy and other things like that.
Well that's not Christian like. I hope you know Jesus had understanding. I wouldn't use him to classify all Christians
I understand that not all Christians are as belligerent as him, but it did make me think up an interesting question.
Is it biased?
The only way I can truly see it as being offensive is if its biased.
It really depends on your definition of the word.
What's the word?
Does everybody know that the bird is the word?
Can you tell us somewhere else???
A really old poll or another user's poll maybe?
Meet me in the ally
Give a hint.
It involves certain bible verses that people usually don't think about.
Well now I'm interested. Keep in mind you can't take everything in the Holy Bible to literally
That depends on who you ask. I know plenty of people that take the bible 100% literally.
Maybe before asking say b4 reading must have an open mind idk something like that
hmm. i'm a Christian, but from what you've said, i don't think i'd be offended by your poll. fwiw.
Same here. If it makes me think, then I'll be better off because of it, not offended. Unless it's intended to be offensive.
I'd post it, but I'm sure that some of my followers will consider it a personal attack on their faith or something.
Of course. Many times, many comments withheld.
Yes I have!
Or when you post something and you wish you didn't either cuz you had lack of knowledge on the subject or someone took it out of context. Happens to everyone I suppose
