in reply to Consideration for obscenity
Personally, there isn't a single word in the entire english language that I find offensive. But there are many, that when strung together to convey a particular meaning or message that I could find highly offensive. It's not the word that is offensive, but the way in which it is used and the intent that is carried.
In this case, as educated_foo notes, the word was probably used in an attempt at humour. A very poor attempt yes, but one would have to be pretty thin-skinned to find it personally offensive.
For the record, I didn't vote on the consideration. But if I had, I almost certainly would have voted to keep it.
