Apologies

Ayaan Hirsi Ali: "We are constantly apologising, and we don't notice how much abuse we're taking." (via Mick Hartley)

Pootergeek: "I hope this hasn’t offended anyone?"

Changing the subject slightly, my (arabic-speaking) Iranian friend insists that the name 'Ayaan' translates as 'Obvious.'

I pressed for a better tranlation, and got 'simple','plain' or 'what you see is what you get'.
