Please realize you don't need to defend yourself at every turn.  Taking 
offense actually has a negative rather than positive effect on your 
cause, and it makes you feel bad.  If you read others' words in a more 
optimistic light, you'll find that offense is rarely intended.

If you *are* offended in a public forum, it's much better to let someone 
else defend you.  That puts you in a very positive light.  People 
appreciate humility.
