That's the point.  It is not the moderator's job to figure out someone's
"intention".  If I call you a dumb jackass, that could be a joke between
friends, or an insult between strangers.  The moderators should just delete
it without regard, because 'intent' is difficult to understand, while raw
meaning is not...

I doubt Fernando meant anything bad at all by his 'welcome to women' thread,
but several got aggravated...  I doubt he meant anything other than to post a
joke he thought was funny.  But then again, this place wasn't created as an
electronic comedy club...
