He/She who is easily offended shall cast the 1st stone(1s), and might be better off as a pedestrian on the Information SuperHighway(ISH).  I learn, at least something, everyday from this forum.
All theories are wrong, but some are useful, eh?

Why was I spared?  ;D

All is good, you did not strike me as a rude member.

It would be interesting to know why you made this post! Met Dalai Lama recently? :)

LOL! Nope. Though I once met a man who taught me to love my neighbors and enemies as myself, to be kind, to be compassionate, forgiving, and to be loving. I've not always done that. The spirit has been willing, but the flesh is sometimes so very weak. :)

I had been starting to wonder if you'd been to the Gothard seminar or something.  What you said here is the best of reasons.

Just stumbled upon this and curiosity got the best of me so I searched the posts.  I don't remember anything of significance and the search says to me that all is fine.  This topic made me thing of ("dear old") Dilbert. ;)

Some trolls have said some pretty nasty things but hey, that's what we expect from them.  I think CR is a pretty friendly place.

I'd have to agree. Despite people who get heated defending their decisions regarding how they spend $1000s of their money (which is understandable, because no one wants to feel or be told that they made a poor choice with a big chunk of money), by and large this forum is extremely informative and relatively benign.

There is a significant amount of "oh, you're new here so you shouldn't be so vocal about your opinions" type reactionary posting, but that's pretty common in online forum communities.

I want to apologise to any and all forum members I have offended or hurt in the past.

I know I have offended a few. I am sincerely sorry.

I have no excuses. There is no reason to act the way I've sometimes acted. I promise to always think and remember there is another human being on the other end of the line.

Could not find anywhere else to put this post, so I put it here to probably be read by the most members.

Wishing all of you the very best in all facets of your lives.  :)

You didn't offend me, but I applaud your apology.  Thank you.

scottkinfw, he got careless with allowing his personal information to be accessible and he got identified online, which made him rather "uncomfortable".  I liked him for the fun he brought but sometimes it was over the top and got downright irritating!

Screw you, your apology is not accepted!
Of course, I am only kidding. However in all sincerity, your posts have not been sufficiently offensive to really justify an apology. I would say that if anyone has been offended by your posts, they probably have too thin of skin to be participating in an internet forum.

I take it as a given that some people will take offense at anything. I try to be reasonably respectful, while still never hesitating to challenge an opinion I disagree with. Perhaps it comes from years working in a legislative arena, but I am not bothered by and actually enjoy a healthy and impassioned debate that is focused on legitimate differences of opinion rather than personal attacks. For the most part, that is the case with this forum.

Him and others probably have all these 3 post accounts that lurk about posting trollish comments.

CanonFanBoy, what I really want to know is what made you change your avatar? It used to be something else.
