>I'd not have used IMNSHO and PC-ness if I had known I was going to raise a ruckus<

I don't think IMNSHO and PC-ness caused a ruckus. They're words I use regularly and happily. I just used them as a example of awkward new, made up words that nobody objects to, to show that perhaps it wasn't the form of the word that mattered.

Agreeing with many other posters, I think open debate is the precious and important thing. Long live it!

BTW if you had checked out the culture before posting, would that have been "pc" of you? ;)
