It would appear that you are the one who is offended. Can't see anyone else having used that word but yourself. So in your saying "If there is no truth there is no offense...".... there must be some truth in what has been said otherwise why would you offended? ...and if you aren't offended, then why all this defensiveness ?
Seems to me that the only one out to win is you. I'm sure you will win because you're the only one running.
And at your request, I shall stay out of this thread. Oh... and why am I posting...? because I can !!
