Chiming in unasked and unwanted from the side here: I personally 
believe it's better to actually say the things you think straight 
up instead of trying to sugarcoat things so people are less 
offended. I've been reading this forum for a while now, and 
there's often people arguing and accusing each other, even about 
trivial things, but from what I've seen these types of 
discussions have brought up and subsequently improved on real 
problems not too rarely.

Plus, anyone getting offended by people ranting on the internet 
is doing something wrong imho.
