Russ,

Even without going back and re-reading your original post down below I feel terrible that my posts were hurtful and inflammatory. But after reading your post again, I believe I was way out of line. I still feel you unfairly generalized, but that's a far cry from what I accused you of and I am deeply sorry. I was wrong. Next time, I'll try to think before I post.

Whereas I appreciate the apology, it really wasn't necessary. Sometimes opinions conflict on the board. That part didn't bother me. But I did feel you jumped on my nationalism and that was a little much.. so I tried to offer up a reason for my thinking the way I do, and was jumped on again... that's when I got defensive, and for that I can apologize too. Sorry.. I should have waited a day to respond, as I know better. Anyways, it's water under the bridge and downstream out to sea. Don't worry about it, and as I said earlier, I will go back to helping anyone I feel I can here, yourself included if you need anything. I don't hold grudges and I am only ever trying to help when I am here. I feel bad that my opinion was taken out of context, but hey, it happens.

Anyways, apology accepted and a return apology offered to you as well. Now lets get back to helping the good RBR folks on the board. But you are a good guy in my book Paul, and I would have thought that regardless of this post. I have read what you have written in the past and I think you give sound advice and offer up good opinions. Even if they aren't in line with my own.

Russ

They just pretend it never happened or say something like "I was just kidding, you butt ugly SOB."
apologies are anti-american ;) nmreklar
