BP boring????????? What a vicious assault....... Oh wait a minute....
Well maybe for some, BP is boring just as I find railway engines and station layouts supremely uninteresting, but I don't try and put down or shut up those who enjoy them.
Live and let live.
In any written format, especially one which by its very nature encourages a quick response without much careful thinking and editing, one person's humour may be perceived as an attack by another as you can't hear the "tone of voice" of the comment.
I know that I need to develop a thicker skin in some areas and I recommend to everyone that they examine their own responses to a post that pushes their buttons and decide whether or not it was intended to be a personal attack or whether it really was intended to be humourous.
Often what I perceive as an assault is seen by others as perfectly acceptable give and take by others. They are obviously completely oblivious to reality ....... ;-)
