Omg I'm such a badass and internet tough guy, something didn't offend me personally so no one should be upset! rolleyes
I know being "offended" by anything makes you really uncool nowadays but this isn't like bigots being offended by something harmless like gay marriage or non-white people living near them.
This can cause actual to someone and I don't see why certain people want to demonise others for feeling hurt or wanting to protect the vulnerable?
I wasn't offended, but I do think it definitely was in bad taste. I was also surprised at the amount of uproar it received. I agree with what everyone else seems to be thinking: I think it's just been built up tension with the userbase and said tension being released through the survey mix up
