However (and sorry to reply to myself) I should point out that I never advocated banning
anything, nor did I say anything about general principles. I responded to an individual
instance which was directed at me, to point out that it *had* caused *actual* (not potential)
offence - is anyone seriously going to suggest that I shouldn't have the right to do that, or
that doing so is tantamount to calling for a ban on potentially-offensive responses?
