    Personal insults take the form of: "You are .........", where ".......", is a pejorative word.

    And we can objectively say what is a pejorative word in English.

    So it is easy to make an objective assessment of a personal insult.

    Just make me your scapegoat like the rest of this forum has. I'd fight back but unfortunately that's against the rules.

    IDK, I feel like all I need to do is collect an army of female 4s and sick 'em on you and you'll forget about my existence, that's not a satisfying boss fight at all.

    Terrible things happen to good people every day.
    Consequentially, I am not one of the good people.
    I am one of the terrible things.

    the "you are a..." reminds me of my favourite sunrise episode...




    Transcript:

    Melissa Doyle: Well that got us thinking: just what sort of language offends these days? Sue Butler is from the Macquarie Dictionary. Sue, good morning to you. Thank you for coming in.
    Sue Butler: Good morning.
    Melissa Doyle: Boofhead. I wouldn’t have thought boofhead was an offensive word.
    Sue Butler: No. I’ve always thought of it as having an affectionate sort of tone. Boofhead comes from the French word buffle meaning buffalo.


    Their mistake was to encourage Butler to explore the issue more widely.

    Sue Butler: Today’s taboos are all about labels that you use for people. So that the sentence, “you are a” is practically a no no. You cannot use...
    David Koch: Even if you use boofhead.
    Sue Butler: Even if you use boofhead because you’re putting it in the same context as things which are clearly rude. You know: “You are a fuckwit.” Well, obviously we know that’s bad.

    And the moment Sue Butler drew breath she got the guillotine.

    Melissa Doyle: Sue thank you so much for coming in. Big can of worms there.
    David Koch: Appreciate your time.
    Melissa Doyle: Appreciate your time.

    As we both know, 9s are the dregs of humanity and can't do ANYTHING.
