For example when someone is getting a point or opinion across about you, in front of you, but in a way that is not direct so you can't really argue with them, and if you did argue you might appear paranoid.
One example of this could be in a staff room at work, person A dislikes person B, rather than get into a verbal argument and plainly say I think you are a repulsive person, they just say something like, eww there's a horrible feeling in this room today I don't know what it is, but I wished it would go away
Really person A was saying they don't like person B and wanted to get an offensive opinion across in a way that lets them get away with it
Is there a word or term used for acts like this?
