Thread: Sorry for my outburst today

  1. #1

    Sorry for my outburst today

    I want to apologize to the community.

    I've been on the receiving end of much worse. What was tossed at me today was mild and innocuous and I escalated things tremendously.

    I need to find a middle ground. I was out of line.

    Sorry all.

    Gary

    but here is a lot more relax I would like to feel.. so one can let there guard down a take things with a pinch of salt in general on here
    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    just in from the pub Gary -saw the exchanges earlier -glad you had a rethink about a what was fairly 'innocuous exchange' as you put it

    my thought was any guy that can handle that watch cannot be so sensitive !!!!

    I see where I just hit my hundredth post and I think I have only pissed off a couple of people. So, I figure that's pretty good... 2%... kinda.

    I have found that some people just like to hear themselves typing.

    If we were all sitting in a bar and this situation had gone down, it would have been over in a second, with a wink, a backslap here and there, and another round of Old Fashioneds or Fluffy Ducks.
    However, we all know that 'tone' is the first casualty on internet forums.
    Although, I usually get on forums to get away from the Eastwoods and Einsteins that exist out there. I've had jibes directed at me in the past. Some I played along with, some I ignored and, like you, I'll need to decide on how I handle them in future on a case-by-case basis.
    In the interests of keeping the peace, though, I usually just switch off the computer and walk away for the day. Works wonders for me.
    Sometimes, though, a little bit of emoticon goes a long way.

    AFAIC, no apology necessary, Gary, but it's nice of you all the same. Enjoy the watch.

    Sounds like you had the kind of day that I had at work, complete with overzealous discussions and subsequent apologies. Everybody has a bad one once in a while, hopefully we learn from them.
