I find it hard to be offended when my bullshit-meter is pegging. Look, guys, I like to think that I have some critical thinking skills left. I would like to be informed of a development in neutral terms and form my own reaction, rather than be informed of how I should feel and then provide limited reasons as to why.
Or, I don't trust you weaselly, emotionally manipulative bastards.
In the interests of fairness, the NRA does the same thing when memberships are up for renewal. Dammit, guys, I don't like giving you money when you do that.
