I don't think so and the only reason anyone would be offended is if they were completely and I mean completely and totally new to the traditionalist movement in which case they could just ignore the comments section like many people do. Also to put it bluntly if you don't really read RC or participate you should perhaps take the word of those who do and are saying that this about more than just 'nasty comments'

No. Otherwise I'd go away too! Let's all just take a dose of humility, including a realistic assessment of what we know. The RC decision isn't in a vacuum. Many traditionalist groups, publications, etc. have a problem with prideful people who know enough to really cause some trouble. This is all in the context of the first posts which said they (RC) are getting watered-down, and where to jump ship to before it is sunk. Maybe Jackson and you can enlighten everyone what exactly is being watered down. They don't love the SSPX enough? Or is the watering down simply just not agreeing with you all the time?

It seems like those people are in the target audience, i.e., part-time trad Mass. I mean, Fish Eaters has a lot of these people.

Bad principle to hold. The Pope's actions may outrage people, but those individuals choose to take action in ways which sometimes lack charity, or at the very least are formulated in less than optimal ways. There's a time for the carrot, and a time for the stick. It is a hard balance in criticizing the Pope or a Council, for instance, because by its nature it diminishes the Faith. What it is is you add your insult to an already existing injury. Some folks just aren't good at spiritual medicine, even when said medicine may be quite painful. Only these people do I have in mind.

By the way, I've had my comments deleted from Fr Z, and he was off the mark for doing it, but in retrospect I was off the mark by coming into the topic like a bull in a china shop. A friend of mine would always say about my shinny black 1978 Nova, "Bees to honey." Your words should be like bees to honey. Even if the words are harsh, they should literally be attractive in their righteousness, just as we are attracted by our Lord clearing the Temple. If you post good comments, then I am sure RC would be persuaded by your good words.
