:think: I'll grant it's possible, but I'd have to see the specific to judge it...with racism it's mostly about contempt. I suspect for most it's about empowered contempt, but I see enough of the unempowered kind to last a lifetime in the old, dying guard. Trad's the most benign of the lot, but it's still a cancer.
I have no idea what your "Since you are stickler for literalism, that point from you, would get confused" means. I don't know what you mean by my being a stickler for literalism or how whatever that is meant to encompass would lead to confusion. I just didn't understand any of it. :idunno:
I don't understand what you mean by that. :idunno: I don't think it's confusing either way, but I think the latter rendering would have precluded confusion on the point by those either determined to read in an offense or just mistaken.
