Oh, bravo.  No, you're not out to offend *anyone*.  You don't see how 
any of this could *possibly* be offensive.  For Pete's sake!

I have some respect for your intelligence (more, it seems, than you have 
for mine, or that of anyone else who has complained at you), so I can 
only assume you're engaging in yet more immature trolling.  Consider 
this my own special brand of AGF.

And a drawing of Mohammed with the caption "You Muslims think you're so 
great, well how do you like this?" isn't mocking, either ... it's just a 
few lines on a page.  It's funny how, if you break something down in 
*just* the right way, you can say whatever you want and give it the ring 
of truth.

I don't see what that has to do with you and Greg vandalising a page on 
Wikipedia.  If it had been anyone else, they'd have been (at the very 
least) given a short block and a ding around the ear.  But you spread 
your hands and say "what's all the shouting about?  It's not like I did 
anything *wrong*."
