    IMO both culture A and B sucks.

    The problem with culture B is that people can feel (semi-consciously) disgust or contempt towards the other person but have learned to hide their feelings using nice sounding words. The problem with culture A is that it does nothing about addressing the original problem of feeling malicious (however subtle) towards one's fellow human beings. "Teasing" and sarcasm are accepted as normal (they are ways one feels good about oneself at the expense of another; thus malicious). Why?

    What about going for a third alternative? Can we live life full of mirth and gaiety?
