My answer to the question Is there a term for a child born after the death of its sibling? appears to hurt the feelings of a few sensitive users. Though I am sorry for that I don’t see how one can take this issue personally. I am just citing an expression used in scientific papers. This is a language site (is it?) so what has perceived rudeness got to do with it? Swear as well as taboo words have been dealt with before on this site, so what’s the problem with my answer?
Given that an increasing number of users appear to be upset by my answer, and given that every single word may be percieved as inopportune and offensive to different people in different contexts I think we should probably create a new tag which automatically will appear under every question and every answer (old and new) which says that: "NO OFFENCE WAS MEANT TO ANYONE"
I deleted my answer because I don't like to see that people are offended by words I posted, even though words are the pure and only essence this site is about.
