True. But when you join an existing community you _should_ be just a
bit more prudent don't you think?
Furthermore, I think we all have screwed up more than once and have
had our good share of rudeness, and have dealt with it.
The bad thing IMO is to continue to attack like the OP did after
realizing his comment was not very welcome.
