So this is another question of interest to me and since everybody here seems to be pretty accepting of a lot of things, I thought it might be an interesting debate topic, especially since TFF members come from all over the world and there may be regional differences. In previous eras, people were a lot more relaxed about the things they said to each other. Unfortunately, sometimes that led to the harassment of some people by others. In a commendable effort to avoid that situation, a lot of organizations have set rules that everyone has to follow in their interactions with other people. In my experience, some of these "climates" are becoming unbelievably extreme to the point of ridiculousness. What is everyone else's experience?
