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.
