No, we can both disagree with one another. If you take what I feel is a morally dubious position on something, I may question you and the base of your morality. I'd expect you to do the same of me or anyone else. Fine.

But you have to realise how it sounds when you complain about "rudeness" or "insensitivity" or even "racism".

There used to be a guy called Left Boob Oscillator (among other aliases/etc) whose m.o. was exactly that - start a controversial thread or make a provocative statement, wait for people to come back at him, then throw his hands up and say "oh dear, I've been attacked!!!!". It's an old trick and tiresome for bitter old men like myself and (I presume) Cheeso.

I don't think I am like that at all. I don't do this tricks.
If I have something to say I say it and try to be civil about it. I don't do it to stir things up.
The only thread I started that could be criticized in this respect was the one where I complain about cheeso and his behavior. I did it because it was genuinely annoying me.
Somebody who says to a presumably foreign user "when are you going to learn English?" is very racist.
This attitude is frankly indefendable: if, for example, you said something like that to a colleague in my workplace you would be sacked.
