I have to disagree.
If someone says no offense or just kidding, they mean they're not trying to be hurtful, and being silly.

You are right! And it doesn't just happen in posts...It happens in pms too! I have a friend who gets pms saying:
Quote:
Ooh, Bon Jovi stinks!
Quote:
Bon Jovi has the voice of a duck!
Quote:
Bon Jovi's ugly!
It is just not right! Why post or pm something that isn't nice?

Your right! You can state your opinion but you don't have to be rude! For example, if your looking at a new outfit someone just bought and they're asking if you like it you could say, "it's not really my style, but I'm sure it looks great on you!" That's stating your opinion AND not being rude!

I guess whenever you get a lot of people in one location rudeness is bound to happen. The fact is though that rudeness is against the rules. The best thing to do is always seek help by flagging the post. I think it is inside all of us to know that rudeness under any circumstances is wrong. The Mods here on WI are very good about dealing with posts and inappropriate behavior. We should trust them and let them handle things. I don't think its ever a good idea to take matters in our own hands though. The Mods are in place to do just that, "moderate." I have found that for the most part WI is full of friendly, thoughtful and nice people. I encounter very few rude comments compared to the nice ones. If someone is sending rude PM's a moderator should be notified of that also.

When others ask us our opinion, while it is true they think they want it, chances are they will not like it if it is the opposite of theirs. So my rule is its better to not say anything sometimes rather than feel its my right to state my opinion. Even if I state my opinion in a nice way...there are just times saying nothing is a better move.

Flagging does get rid of it, like others stated. If someone took offense to it, please tell them not to say rude things on other's threads as well, and say it in a nice, mannerful way.

There have been many threads like this, and I agree with it all.

Sometimes people don't understand the fact of a joke, and 'no offense' and 'just kidding' don't help as much as you think they do.

exactly! Like someone posted on my friends HP contest saying "HP is stupid, blah blah blah, how can you like it, blah blah blah, no offense, but I really hate it, blah blah blah.." That was seriously offensive to us!
I totally agree. Saying 'no offense' after a rude comment doesn't automatically make it okay to post.

If you ever have to say, "no offense" after you have made a comment..the fact you are writing that shows you know it is in fact "offensive." Best to start over and reword..

Very true! You said the exact thing that hadn't been said yet. To say "No offense" means you know it's not the best thing you could say or the best way you could say it.
