I don't sugarcoat, I do try to stay mature and polite. I tend to walk away before it gets to name calling. Only because I find it juvenile and counter productive, I don't generally find it offensive.
I will stand up for what I believe in, but I will leave a conversation if it becomes clear that other parties are not receptive to differing opinions or if it has become a mud slinging match. One recent thread comes to mind.
I am too old to partake in childish high school insult slinging matches. So I choose not to!
