An apology Re: Who's next

  1. I had no idea this thread would be so upsetting to some. It was not my intention to rile so many people, and for that I am truly sorry.
    My wife is a member on this bb, and I have read some of the threads with her at times. Some get pretty intense so I thought I'd get HER going and throw a different perspective on it. Again, I had no idea it would do this much damage. When I fessed up this morning she got pretty upset. Rightly so. My intention was not to harm but it took that direction.
    So, Happeewendy. I am sorry I upset you so much. It was meant in good fun.
    Thanks to all who pm'ed me with support and thought it was funny too...I was warned I may take a "flaming" and boy, did I.
    If ever allowed back in here, I shall be careful what I post!

    You all seem like good people. Hope there is no hard feelings.

    Well I missed the dang thread - it was short apparently.

    I have a sick sense of humor so I guess I found it kinda funny (I mean, I thought my darling Reb's Ecudorial dirrahea was kinda funny) but perhaps it would have been better in the War Room as those of us have a thicker skin in there and probably would appreciate a little dry humor.

    my skin is plenty thick, I wrote an explanation as to why I reacted the way I did and hoped that clarified things...
    I saw a nurse I work with break down because 2 of her three sons will mostl likely be going to Iraq to fight for everyones freedom.. so agian I can appreciate dry humour , I didnt report the thread, I also appreciate everyones right to their own opinion, I was just posting mine
    different strokes I suppose

    I read it Joe; again, I found it kinda funny.

    Wendles, I understand and read your perspective. Perhaps it was just poor timing. Sometimes what's funny to me one day isn't the next. And I meant "thicker skin" as referring to the topic of war itself - not that you're weak-kneed or easily offended or a fragile flower. k?

    You're still sparklie to me! I like your perspective so keep it coming.:kiss

    oh I know you werent talkin personally bout me or anythin susy, but a few other ppl told me to lighten up n whatnot so I didnt want to come across as someone who sits at home , dressed in black all the time , listening to the gregorian monks chant and writing bitter poetry or anything , cuz I'm not
    I like to laugh, sometimes at things that I shouldnt be laughing at either, in this case I do think it was a case of bad timing
    I didnt mean to flame you sean, I just wanted to bring my opinion to the table, I apologize if you and some others felt like I was flaming etc...

    I thought "my canuck puddle duck" was a belittling putdown, and he deserved more flames than he got for THAT.

    and there are no hard feelings so its
    kinda a much ado about nothing situation

    and for the record my funnybone is intact , but thanks for your concern (drip,ooze,sarcasm)

    Ummm, I was offended by it once I looked back to see what the fuss was all about. To me it was in poor taste.

    This whole war thing is very upsetting to many people and I believe that it makes for thin skins and short tempers. This poll was in poor taste and the maker of it of it must have left his good sense in the other room when he posted it.

    That said, I accept the apology. End of (my part in this) conversation.

    I thought it was funny. He polled the toilet paper one at the time as well so you know he's not a 100% serious type dood. Anyway, glad to see you worked it out...
