You are free to consider it offensive or other things - that is 
completely up to you and of course you are also completely free to 
state that publicly.

But to me "no-one should have to read that" indicated something 

Everyone please keep in mind that dealing with what you consider 
offensive or inappropriate is a significant part of what is commonly 
called tolerance.  People with different cultural backgrounds have 
different ways of expressing their opinions and views.  That we are 
communicating here in English does not mean we are all express 
ourselves according to British or American cultural conventions.
