I don't even know on what planet liking one fantasy movie over another is offensive, although I suspect it's Earth. People are surprising creatures sometimes.

To be fair, if somebody was all like "Transformers are way better than LOTR!", that is something a reasonable person could be offended about. ;)

Is it? I mean, clearly someone saying that would be wrong, but that's sad, not offensive.

You guys would be surprised at how offended some people have gotten at my expressing that opinion, or perhaps at how I have expressed it, here in this very forum. I hate offending people, so I would rather be safe than sorry.

ETA: Just to be clear, not about Transformers, which I have never seen.

Time means little on the Intertoobz.

Yay! I'll be curious to hear what you think of the additions/changes/appendices/etc.
