I don't understand the concept of being "possibly insincere".  Please would you explain/
Claire Khaw
Why use such euphemisms?  Why not call them "questions that have caused offence"?  Then the complainants can explain why they are feeling aggrieved and make fools of themselves.  

In fact, why don't you have a section for "Probably Offensive Questions"? I bet it would be a hit.
