Re: What type of interactions are the mods having on SE????
"Taking offence gives a person power. The power to abuse, look down on, patronize (or matronize or...) and (above all) control others."
It's sad that some people think they are getting such powers as you mention by taking offence, when in realty they are giving away their power and their independence, and making their happiness and their value dependent on external factors / actors, rather than their own self-worth being an intrinsic and unshakeable part of who they are.
