God...seriously. Get over it.
If that's all it takes for you to feel insulted you must be really hard to live with.
I shed no tears over it, I assure you. But when people call me a name rather than address my argument, simply because they disagree with it, it irks me because it shows a lack of respect for me and my opinions. And I didn't respond unduly. I told the person who did that to get over themselves and told somebody else that sarcastically insulting somebody without sufficient evidence to back your stance against them makes them seem to be self important and a fool. I didn't go spouting off racial slurs or calling people very offensive names. If you ask me, people who felt I over-reacted are the oversensitive ones.
