So, you accused "Bob" of being offensive, and then realized you might have offended Balin. Did this occur in the chatroom, discussing another puzzle? On another puzzle? Is the other relevant puzzle one of yours? One of Balin's? One of "Bob's"?

OK...you, Whirligig, aka "Adam", accused "Bob" aka Mr. Gregory Coke, of being offensive to Balin by (presumably jokingly, lol) calling him a "transvestite". You then realized that...you may have accidentally insulted real transvestites, should there be any on the LTPF?
