Ever notice that when people start a sentence with the words "Don't mean to be rude" or "No offense, but" that they are rude anyway? Seriously it is less rude to say what you mean without prefacing it at all with "No offense".
Do you find it ruder when people preface their statement with those things or not?

Yes I have. Although sometimes I get what the poster is saying. Sometimes I'll say something and it really is in fact not mean't to be rude but the only way I can find the wording sounds rude so I say it in hopes that people get what I mean.

In a post not that long ago I actually remember seeing someone post "no offense but your dumb for not leaving your hub". Yes, I'm sure whoever posted that question was sure to remember not to take offense to that.
