Words can't be tricky.<quoted text>
True. The golden rule has some flaws. I think it is better replaced by a set of two rules:
1. Do no harm
2. Do unto others as they would do unto themselves
In essence, treat people the way they want to be treated, with the caveat that you are not to do any harm to them or others.
Some people may be harmed by something that other people don't. It's matter of people sensibility.
