"Decent" or "civilized" language can be more offensive than name calling. Therefore, who will be the judge?
It isn't about being offensive or no offensive. It is about people being belligerent, disrespectful and using ad homs instead of responding to the topic at hand. Sometimes you can't help who you offend but you can help being disrespectful and disruptive.
