We intended this to be thought-provoking, but to judge by the response, very few people received it that way. The vast majority found it offensive and insulting. This column has often argued that a failure of public communication is the fault of the public communicator, and that's certainly true in this case.

Stupid tweeting - it's not just a problem for pro athletes
I did find it thought provoking. The thought it provoked was, "What an ass"

All generalizations are dangerous.
