There's a continuum. I'm very much in favor of civility and I absolutely despise when people excuse rudeness with phrases like "I'm just telling it like it is." But on the other hand, I had a professor in college who gave me a "B" on a paper and the only mark down from a perfect "A" was that I used the "sexist" term "mankind" instead of "humankind." That's not basic civility. That's PC extremism. And that was 20 years ago.
