One quibble you didn't cover which I hear a good deal:
Short answer: Because they hurt the feelings of people who have done nothing to merit such pain, whether you meant it to or not.
Quibble: But you don't have a right not to be offended.
(I know what I'd say to this, but I thought I'd mention it in case perhaps it was useful for inclusion.)
