    Not.

    I'm reading that as the poster's solicited opinion.

    so inferring somebody is screwing their sister is okay---not commonly viewed as an insult?

    hmmmmm, opens a wide door to the proverbial slippery slope. don't you think? :eusa_whistle:

    Well it's a case by case basis.

    In this case that doesn't read like a personal attack.

    I'm reading that as a more general statement kinda like if someone asks, "how do you feel about homosexuals?" and the response was "hey if you want to be gay that's your problem" Are you attacking that person and saying they are gay or are you merely saying that don't have a problem with people being gay? I'm going with the latter.

    The above does not constitute an inference that you and your sister are screwing around. One may infer such, but it has not been said by the speaker that one is screwing one's sister. It merely says that IF ONE CHOOSES to screw one's sister, I will not interfere.

    If the speaker had said, "The fact that you are screwing your sister is no concern of mine.", then you might have a point.

    If you choose to be a communist, I will not interfere. That statement does not imply that I think you are a communist.

    Go...and sin no more.
