So do I - now - have this fella "plonked"
May I take this opportunity to publicly apologize to the highly esteemed
members of this list for an unworthy outburst of what Greg kindly
described as immoderate language.
I know better. I think the subject, poster, circumstances and repetitive
braindead nature of the constant posting tripped my threshold of
indignation. That said though, I should not have replied in that tone,
nor employed the vulgarities that I did.
I have nothing but *stellar* regard for the individuals who take such
immense time and effort to help others on this list. I feel privileged
to belong to this community, and grateful for a huge amount of guidance
advice and help I've received here. I wouldn't have a working OS without
the tireless good humored and plain 'ol kind help I've gotten here. I'm
also wildly enthusiastic about this incredible OS. I can't say enough
good things about it. Simply put, it's the best (for what I utilize it
My actions did not exactly elevate the level of discourse we are
accustomed to. It was invective pure and simple. I am capable of better
than that, and apologize for offense that I no doubt caused.
And now...onwards. I shall endeavor not to repeat this transgression in
the future. Sorry folks.
