"Political correctness" is always trotted out when someone is challenged on a post that is offensive and demeaning. But there it is -- the language was offensive and demeaning, and I deleted it as a result. It is regrettable that you think you have a right to post such language, or that you should feel I am picking on you because you do. I would have deleted that language no matter who posts it. I have deleted other offensive posts or language as well. It's not about you, Airhawk, and if you don't like having me mod your posts I suggest you take some care in your choice of language in the future.

Okay, but you can't deny that "offensive and demeaning" are highly subjective terms. Not having had the opportunity to see the original message I'm not in a position to agree or disagree with your assessment but I would hope that if you're going to take the time to censor a user you'd give them a less flippant explanation. Preferably one that sites a clearly stated part of some user agreement each person is obliged to accept in order to be a member of the site. Otherwise, regardless of intent or likely agreement, you leave the impression that you are being petty and tyrannical.

I insinuated Hillary Clinton was a Lesbian, but claimed that would be no deterrent to my having sex with her, if proffered.

In vulgar terms. (i.e. - not "Politically Correct", and phrased in vulgar vernacular, or "common speech"). No Profanity involved.
