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.
