      Also if you'd pay attention in RL you will find out that people complain about each other time, so it's not a measure I'm going to feel terribly bothered about...
      So, if people say you offended them, your reaction is to ignore it since "it happens all the time". I wonder what metric you use to regulate your behaviour and interaction with others. My guess is that, at least here, you rely on social acceptance and complicity--which you don't lack judging from comments from other posters. I just wanted to let you know that you don't count with mine on this one, however funny I may have found a number of your comments in the past.

      It's not the first time somebody has complained about Ricky Gervais. And yet I find him funny. Guess not everybody has the same taste. Who'd have thought!
      The important point is not how fun something may be for a group of people, but rather how offensive it may be for another.

      Anyway, don't you guys waste too much time about this issue. After all, this is Phoronix.

          I hear you. We had this discussion with the RMS joke, too. You convinced me there that it's important to consider that a joke harms people. But it's also important to keep in mind that everything (especially on the internet), is going to offend. I disagree that it's not important to consider that a joke is fun for people.

          Food for thought: have you ever thought about Stephen Colbert this way: he systematically bullies and makes fun of Bill O'Reilly. This is deeply offensive to Bill, and to a lot of conservatives. It's very funny to the rest of the world.

          Or how about this one: in a sketch Ricky Gervais makes fun of disabled people (or of how people treat disabled people). He's doing a sketch where he's bullying a stranger in a wheelchair (his paraplegic boss in real life). This generated some outrage, but also some comments by handicapped people who thought it was funny. I guess it rang true.

          Sorry for wasting more time on this, but I got nothing better to do.
