    When a message begins as your first posting did, by stating that it will 
"probably piss a lot of people off", or words to that effect, the customary 
interpretation would be that its writer intends it to be, or at least 
acknowledges that it is likely to be, a provocation to numerous readers.  If 
your intent was otherwise, I suspect I am not alone in having missed it.  
Perhaps if you had expressed yourself a bit more clearly, you might have 
avoided any potential misunderstanding.
