Usually when people say no offence, they offend people. If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.

If I have an opinion that might offend the thread-maker....I
simply don't say anything. Why hurt someone's feelings?

There are always lots of other threads to post on.

Yes! Just because "No Offense" is said, doesn't mean it won't add offense...

One way I have seen this happen is the big "No offense" that people seem to think makes everything happy to the original poster. There are some situations where this might be ok, but when we are dealing with another person and their opinon, then it is just plain rude.

Like for example, there is a thread on the coolest webkinz.
Usernamexxxxx thinks that the cheeky monkey is coolest, while usernamebbbbb thinks that the pug is cooler. Usernamebbbbbb would say "No offence, but I don't really like the cheeky monkey, I like the pug better." That would be a better way than "No offence, but I hate the cheeky monkey!! It's ugly, and the pug is way better!!"

I was just visiting a thread with a different topic, but it was a suggestion for WI, and someone just trashed the poster and then afterwards said "no offence" which I found was really rude, and if I was the thread started, I would be very very offended.

So basically, adding "no offence" does not make your post any less offensive.

Sorry for my rant.
I'm half-n-half with your opinion here (This post ehre is IMHO)

I find that it is OK to disagree with others (like you said) but I find a way to d it politely (like you said!)

I quote the post (like now) make references to the post (like now) and I always (notw that I know) put 'IMHO' at the top of my post that is my opinion.

There is a girl at my school that is very goody-goody-ish and has to correct everyone's opinion. I find that rude. You can share your own opinion while commenting on another person's, and sharing your feelings about that. (Wish I had the guts to tell that girl!)

Thankies! Yes, me too, Gingerly, golden rule. Why come on an ovbiously active and social website and be rude? Just to mess it up? Unfortunatley that's how some are, but not me.

Ok
I think that is a wonderful Idea
While I am posting I always stay positive so i do not hert anyones feelings

---------- BubbleQueen added 1 Minutes and 40 Seconds later ----------

Once at school I wrote a letter to a friend to tell her something and I told her to take no offence and it jsut made it worse so I learned never to do that it just makes it worse
