Default Apologies offered.

I have not posted on here since early May because I basically made an *** of myself on a thread on May 4. I would like to offer an apology to those that I offended, made fun of or just plain got mad at and like I said above, made an *** of myself with my remarks. I knew immediately after I posted I had made a mistake. This is the reason i took the time away from this site to think about my actions and to rethink how I need to act as an adult on here. That is not me and I truly regret my words. Please accept my apologies to those I insulted or just plain attacked whomever you might be.

I initially deleted all my info and was actually going to completely abandoned this site, but I have been on here a long time and needed to make amends to the great people on here.

I am sorry and hopefully will learn from my mistakes and think long and hard before I type a reply to anyone. I will slowly get back into posting but hopefully in a better frame of mind.

I do not know the post in which you post of nor the event that happened but it takes a big man to admit he was wrong. There are times when we all should push away from the screen and take a good look at our own actions and responses and see how we really come off to the viewers. Including myself. Good day sir.

We’re all human Brother and we all make mistakes ( I personally make a lot of them) so don’t beat yourself up too bad. It takes a big man to step up to the plate as you have done and it is a testament to all of us that humility makes us better Men of God! You’re a good Person!

Welcome back! To me all of the members bring something important to this great community! Whether or not we all agree on issues that get discussed on this great forum is not the question. I believe we can all do a better job of using a bit of civility in the discussions of our disagreements. Once again, welcome back.

I don't think you said anything out of line. I think you are the one owed the apology. I can promise you those guys are ate up with "keyboard machismo". Most of them would be singing a different tune if their wife was standing over their shoulder watching them type.

Welcome back Doug! Not sure what you are referring to specifically, but I can bet what forum it was in since I didn't see it. If it is where I think it was, stay out of that place. As you can see since May, its been better for your mental health and productivity. Arguing in there whether, for or against ,the majority or minority, will rot your mind. Nobody changes their own....I'd rather run a hand shovel chipping concrete than argue in that pace....errr place..

Brother, as you can see, no one remembers your transgression. Don't worry about it Brother. If it was on the Pace forum, I can understand. Personally, I take the Pace forum in small doses. I think its a necessary forum, but it is potent.

Mudslinger, you are golden. Don't sweat it. You sir are one of the few that actually does the right thing. Love ya Bro

Welcome back! I've been on here for about 10 years and I've had a couple of run-ins with people (you were actually one of them....LOL), but just as you and I did back then, cooler heads have usually prevailed in the end, and we worked it out. I've never visited the PACE forum, and I don't plan on it.
Now that you're back, and unless I missed it, I'm looking forward to your recap of your recent trip to RSA.
