    Context, context, context. Ok signal under water is ok signal. Ok signal with spread fingers while posing for a photo with my KKK buddies is ... something else.

    I never though it was for "everything it's fine" but "I hate you".

    Nothing just like in ASL the letter "T" can be very offensive hand gesture to other cultures. It was never intended to be it was just a coincidence.

    It is utterly pathetic. To allow a perfectly innocent diving signal to be highjacked by f4ckwits to then be offensive to other f4ckwits is beyond ridiculous.

    I despair of the radical few % on either side of the spectrum that seem to be allowed to dictate how the rest of us should go about our normal, tolerant lives.

    Sorry for the rant, I'm just a bit sick of it.
