Indeed, however I think this misses the point.

If we're going to be concerned about respectful behavior, I think we need to be consistent about it. I don't think that blatant forms of disrespect should be allowed to get a pass, while perceived forms of disrespect ("my feelings were hurt by xyz. I've been disrespected", etc) are chased down and dogpiled.
I will do my best to be neutral and to deal with any forms of disrespect I see - is that acceptable?

Okies, with regards myself I can only Moderate from this point forward.
