There are a lot of things people are greatly offended by on a personal
level, even moreso than they are offended by pedophilia. Who is going
to draw up the list of things one cannot say on their user page due to
it being too blatantly insensitive? It's been suggested in the past
that saying "I'm a neo-Nazi" ought to be a bannable offense. Does that
complete the list? Neo-Nazis and pedophiles out; everybody else ok?
Well, I suppose "I support suicide bombings" is probably out too. Is
the ArbCom going to be in charge of making these decisions?
