    On fora such as this, it is very rare that anyone will admit to be wrong and even more rare to apologize for offences.
    Recently some posters understand-idly could not restrain themselves in celebrating a very joyous event to the discomfort of some other posters. Shortly thereafter another joyous event happened elsewhere, which of course led to more celebration.
    Without getting into the details of these two events, there resulted in about a week of constant acrimony before the truth prevailed and an Armistice was agreed under satisfactory conditions to the main antagonists.
    However amidst the fray and the mirth there were others that suffered insult and assault. Collateral damage if you will.
    It is time to publicly apologize and lament any pain whatsoever that might be caused, as even though oneself is not bothered by insult, that does not mean others are likewise unaffected.
    First off, the respected poster PotatoMystic was baited unnecessarily as a result of an earlier tussle on a different thread. Of course once he responded then it was off to the races.
    Then MaxFlynn posted some material that he thought at the time was pertinent and questioned it's validity. Now everything must be questioned nowadays, we all agree on that. So he got ill treated really so perhaps he is the biggest victim so to him especially I apologize. It was his honesty that served as an epiphany to me.
    The posters Sword and Anderson also got the raw end of the stick so I apologize to them also. Maybe others as well.

    Anyway, I overstepped it with these posters whose opinions I respect and I wanted to acknowledge that.

    The thread does not really need comments. It is a notice to these posters.

    Hey Dan, no need to apologise, I understand its a forum and we all share similar opinions but we also have different ones. If we all agreed on everything it would be a boring world!

    You are a quality poster and regardless if we disagree or not I have no problem with you nor anyone else.

    Thanks Anderson, there are posters like me that just like a good argument at times, and all too frequently it can be overdone.

    No problems Boss. Let me apologize for Taidge as well, who does not give you the respect you are entitled to, being The Boss.

    Well, on reflection I did stray from my usual formula of light hazing to areas untoward. For that I'm indeed contrite. For the rest, I consider the matter of our recent acrimonious exchanges to be closed.
