"No offense" discussion
 
The no offense thing isn't uncommon here on WI. The problem is people take it the wrong way. Many people use it to shield real offenses which makes it seem more offensive. Some people use it to get their "tone" across in case the statement can be taken in the wrong way. Here is an analogy: No offense is like a shield it does nothing against a fire ball (something truly offensive), but can work with a sword(something that can be taken the wrong way).
Here are some made up, general examples:

No offense, but you are crazy! How can you actually like (insert something here)? I mean that is just pathetic!

I can't really agree with that, no offense, but I can't agree with that because...

I think you can tell the difference. What do you think of no offense? Is it a good thing or bad. Post opinions!:cc:

Um, well one time I was on a thread "Ugliest webkinz" and I said, "No offence, but I think the gorilla is ugly." Is that ok?

And BTW, It's kinda mean when you say
"NO offence your weird for liking (example:)
BEAVERS!"

everyone has there opinions. :)

I think it is a bad thing, saying "no offence" doesn't take the offence out of the comment. Except in Sparkleberry's case, she isn't trying to offend any certain person.

Thanks for listening,

If I am saying constructive critizim, normally I will say please don't take this the wrong way after I say whatever I posted. So they get the hint that I am not trying to be mean, I say "please don't take this the wrong way"

And if you ask me, if someone is acting mean (like in your 1st example) I think no offence, just ADDS offence. In sparkleberrys case it doesn't though.

Thanks for posting this, i see WAY too much mean critizism on WI with "no offence" at the end.

Re: "No offense" discussion
 
" No offense " Is used as a word(s) to make sure they know that's someone's opinion. If you say " No Offense but your crazy. That's pathetic " Is covering up the no offense. Again, it's used as an opinion word, but if you have a totally oppisite opinion, you shouldn't call them mean names anyway. If your saying " No offense, but I don't like my avatar you made me " That's again an opinion but it's not so mean. I believe it's okay to say it but only in cases when your belief differs only a little bit.
