At what point is respect and courtesy more important than the truth?

A great discussion was started on Tuesday’s face of the day and a valid point made by David Malcolm Wedde made me consider the issue some more.

I think that the argument centres on at what point we believe respect and courtesy is more important than the truth or our right to our own opinion.

Is it when the truth or our opinion will upset or offend someone?

Is it only when we are dealing with a mentally ill person who is too fragile to handle the truth or an opinion that is different to theirs?
