I definitely agree, because more often than not, people will say no offense, because they know that it will be offensive. No offense doesn't give people the right to say something rude, and usually it adds to how offensive the post is. People need to understand that, and find other ways to make their posts sound nicer. It should definitely be worded differently. [rep]

Yepp - I've seen that around a lot. No offence does not take away the offence. You can't just say no offence ___ rude comment. You can say no offence ___ polite comment with your opinion.

My friend used to do that to me all the time. And, in 3rd grade, I loved singing and she said "No offense but your a horrible singer." I was so upset.

Default Re: "No Offense but..."

Your post absolutely rocks. I have read somethings on that are uncalled for, and just downright RUDE!

In response to your question, "why would people do that?" My opinion is that they become "brave" with their rudness, when they are not directly looking at the person that they are "trashing".

Some people would never have the "guts" to say anything to your face, but at the other end of a telephone line, or a post, "Watch Out - here comes their rudeness".

I know that sometimes it hurts your feelings, but just shake it off. Remember, you are not alone, because if they are "trashing" you they are more than likely "trashing" others.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Yes. Very good point. All the "popular" girls at my school do that about a gazillion times a day. I do think that some users should try to be a little more sensitive towards other people's feelings.

Default Re: "No Offense but..."

Now, here's my opinion....

The phrase 'No offense, but....' just really says 'Hey, grip your chair and grab the tissues, I'm about to say something really rude!'

Two little words don't take care of the rudeness, in my opinion.
