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.
Stuff like this happen to me all the time. This is the reason there should be feature like this. I wish if we get similar and more effective feature like this in real life ?
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.

Do you apologise to people, even if you are NOT in the wrong – just for peace sake?I do sometimes, to avoid any stress but I don’t want people thinking I’m a soft touch.

If I’m lucky, no one on Hub Pages remembers me. But, I’ve never been lucky so I am back to apologize to the fundamentalists. I told myself I left in disgust at the forums; but the truth is I was disgusted with myself. I had never been exposed to some of the beliefs as shared here...

Should you apologize if a friendship is at risk, even when its 100% not your fault?When should you grin and bear it and say sorry to someone that you have a history with of many years of friendship, but that you were the one that was right and they were not, and they yelled that you were the reason...

Maybe you have something to apologize for, or you think someone owes you an apology. Does apologizing even make sense to you? Always, sometimes, never?
