To show you exactly how ridiculous all of this is, I was actually sanctioned and banned here for using the word abnormal, because some people want to think abnormal is personally insulting.

Oh interesting, you actually don’t understand context.
I exactly understand context. Next, you'll claim it is possible for context to allow the word normal to be deemed as insulting.

Of course it can.  That is precisely how context works.  Reach out in a DM if you want to avoid this embarrassing conversation.  I am happy to educate you.

Since it is directly related to the OP title, kindly post your absurd example here ITT.

Please note, everyone will most certainly view the example you present as absurd, without question.
To be honest I am getting pretty bored of this place.

Sure.

“You’re too normal.” Don’t get it? That’s because context matters.

It is evident this is not offensive in the least; therefore, it is absurd.

Some shows were censored in china (like an anime) to where blood was instead changed to white which is even worse than blood since if there's blood all over someone in the Original version than in the censored version it looks like some porno where someone has cum all over them

Directly insulting another user outside of CN/AR is against the forum rules. If you would like to question forum rules, you may do so in Suggestions & Concerns. Do not do it here.

I would also like to remind Rama that it is possible to not reply to the things Action80 posts. We've had you two ruin enough threads. Do you really have to do it here, too?

We could just lock of them in AR/CN and the problem would probably be solved.

They can’t keep getting away with this!  The woke mob has gone TOO FAR!

What an author does to their own work is not topical.

It's just as silly and dumb, but I have no problem with people making changes to their own work, it's their prerogative.

I wasn't.

And I submit Roald Dahl's work wasn't directly insulting anyone either.

The point is, some people can take some things any way they wish.

If a person wants to spend their time looking for insults, they can find them anywhere...

...primarily, however, in their imagination.

Direct insults are not the only way to be offended.  For example, some people are offended by explicit sexual references or excessive profanity, even if not directed at anyone in particular.  Even someone with an obnoxious attitude can be offensive to some.

Agreed.  Some people are overly sensitive and/or go out of their way to look for things to be offended by.  Some people get over zealous in trying to cater to those people while others are themselves offended by such people and go out of their way to offend them even more.
