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. :)

We all post some things that would be better not said. I've deleted uncountable posts of mine before I pushed the post button. I might have more posts than Neuro if I had posted all those that I decided were too rude.

You night now have to apologise to Neuro for any possible misinterpretations of your post. The only way of never offending is never to post.

We could all do with a bit of that humility on the internet.
Canon Rumors is pretty civilized compared to the general web where people can get really nasty in expressing what is an opinion. It’s good to take stock before you post whether the comment needs to be more respectful or toned down.
It’s also worth considering when a post makes you angry / upset that is it really that necessary to fire back a reply. In real life we are probably mainly a reasonable bunch of people.

No offence taken on my part. I dare say I’ve done the same, and this inspires me to be better in the future. If CR is more civilized than some places, I don’t believe that it’s because the member are intrinsically better people, but rather that people take responsibility for their actions, as you’re showing an example of doing here. Thanks for encouraging us all.

I am sure that I have done the same, particularly when I think that I am being humorous, yet someone else may interpret it as offensive. For this, I also apologize.

I’d like to add that I have yet to run into a CR member that I would not head out for a coffee (or beer) with..... there are a lot of interesting people out there!

I had a few slightly rude responses from someone in the past
I really dont store all that..

but
you are fine...I believe..
I have seen MANY good comments by you here..
and
this is a VERY good and informative forum... for me at least

when folks get wound up.. with this much information..
voices get loud.. I try to let intense opinions...remain useful

keep contributing....
strong opinions are also... most times..... fact-filled.

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. :)

+1 me too.

I find this forum very civil overall. I joined FredMiranda for about two days and left because a user responded to my first or second post "you wouldn't know the truth if it hit you in the a**". After I commented about nice way to welcome a new member, another user commented they had not seen the rude comment because they have that user turned off, so he must do that stuff all the time. I tried to report it and remove my account and got no reply. So their site is very poorly moderated (if at all) while I assume this site is well moderated. Since I am a moderator myself on another (non-photo) site, I know how much work it can be.

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.

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.
