    I have apologised in the thread and by email - but I thought I would go the whole hog and publicly humiliate myself as well.

    I made comments earlier today that were thoughtless, arrogant, stupid and offensive. I wish I had stuck to my policy so far on HP of typing stuff and then deleting instead of sending it.

    But I didn't.  I posted - because I was so up myself and concerned about the importance of what I had to say, based on my little bit of oh so important knowledge, or rather opinion - that I did not pause to consider the effect of my message.

    So, publicly and honestly, because I annoyed or upset a nice person - I am sorry lronher.

    As I'm not Ironher, it may not be my place to speak here, and I certainly don't mean for this comment to be taken as pressuring Ironher into reacting or not reacting a certain way.

    That said, I think it's very big of you to post this, and write such an eloquent apology. Too often I see people apologizing half-heartedly, or saying something like "I'm sorry you felt hurt", which really just implies that the other person is to blame. I admire that you didn't do that.

      The trouble is that once it is said or posted there is no taking it back.  So deleting posts or apologising to someone does not undo the harm from the original action.  I wish I always thought before acting.

      Yeah, strictly speaking this is just for one person, not everyone I have tried to wind up or belittle over the last few months.  So I take on board what you are saying and as usual try to make sense of it.
