A woman reader writes that it is "highly offensive" and "beyond stupidity" on my part for sharing a post about pay cuts and how ISIS is handling them.  Maybe someone can tell me why.

Do we hate our enemies so much that we can't rationally observe their behavior?   Is Reductio ad ISIS the new Reductio ad Hitlerum?   Should all HR related blogging succumb to vapid, SHRM-approved blather?   

"If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles," wrote Sun Tzu in the Art of War.  How about JFK: "Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names."

Do we hate our enemies so much we're unwilling to heed this simple advice?

Not here sister.
