no one here is going to kill you over that.

No, it currently costs too much. However, they can and have seriously damaged my professional reputation.

Its only chance that I'm somewhat protected from that kind of thing.

Empty, sandy seabeds are being turned into thriving reef ecosystems across Australia - created from seafood shells collected from restaurants that would have otherwise ended up in landfill.

What an astonishing good-news story.

This is one of 10 pilot sites in four Australian states rebuilding the enormous chain of reefs that once stretched along the coast from Noosa to Perth, that were all but wiped out by dredge harvesting last century.

Fishermen are recognsed as heroes - but I can't help thinking they're the most thoughtless and destructive pirates.

Pity you are unfamiliar with Warren Mitchell who played the TV role of Alf Garnett on "Till death us do part".  He played the role of a far right-wing "bigot" who waxed eloquently against non-West Ham football clubs,  his Scouser son-in-law from Liverpool,  suntans, Asians, communists, trade-unionists, Harold Wilson's UK labour party  etc.  To know him is to know me (except I don't smoke).  There are reams of articulated considered logic in his views. You Tube probably has "The thoughts of Chairman Alf" wherein he expresses himself perfectly.  His views resonated and struck a chord with millions including the UK Conservative Party which offered him a candidacy.  He declined.  They did not realize in real life, he was a socialist Labour Party supporter.

His non-PC views would not be allowed on TV today.

Suffice to say, you do not know what you've been missing.

He was a fraud but found an important (and profitable!) niche expounding unpleasant nonsense.

I'd not expected you to admit to being a fraud from the same box.

That's nonsense as well - "Citizen Khan" is not as directly offensive but might be even worse from some cultural viewpoints.

Alas, not even I can keep everybody happy.  Heaven knows how hard I have tried.

You've not tried.

You've targeted "Suntans" and others to very offensive result.

Pray tell, which PC word would you suggest knowing not even they know what they want to be described.  They cannot agree among themselves.

Indeed, among themselves they use the reserved "N" word but moan if others copy their example.   Same story with a reserved "K" word. 

Even neutral terms will be offensive to "offendo-freaks" chomping at the bit to take offence, even if most of their own life-form has no issue. 

We've tried everything to keep them happy including "natives", "bantu", "plurals", "Africans".

Likewise, most mixed-race proudly call themselves "Bastards".  Some cannot decide if they must be named "Brown", "Coloured" or "Discoloured".

They were convinced the Whites were holding them back, so they founded their own independent Rehoboth Homeland where statute laws were scribbled into a school text book.  They soon demanded a White Minister of Finance.

I don't want to stigmatise them.

What's your problem?

Are you saying that your mentality is that of the apartheid nation?

Well, no, don't answer that.
