Yes. As I said to Daniel, I would like to understand who it is insulting 
and how. So far I've just been told that "hundreds of thousands" of people 
are insulted, but have no idea who or how.

I would like nothing more than to see the other situations. That's why I'm 
engaging here, that's why I've been asking this very question for 
literally years now.

Neither David nor Daniel have made a case that makes any sense to me, 
sorry. If you could rephrase them to explain it to me in a way that I 
understand, I would be most grateful.
