Default Re: Please don't do this.....

If you are simply stating your opinion, especially if it is requested, there should be no reason to say "No offense, but I disagree with you." Why is it that people think saying "I disagree with you." is offensive?

Dictionary.com defines offense as:
Dictionary.com Unabridged (v 1.1) - Cite This Source - Share This
of⋅fense   [uh-fens or, for 7–9, aw-fens, of-ens] Show IPA Pronunciation
1. a violation or breaking of a social or moral rule; transgression; sin.
2. a transgression of the law; misdemeanor.
3. a cause of transgression or wrong.
4. something that offends or displeases.
5. the act of offending or displeasing.
6. the feeling of resentful displeasure caused: to give offense.
7. the act of attacking; attack or assault: weapons of offense.

I agree, "No offense." generally means "I probably will offend you and I want to make you think I don't intend to."
