Actually, there is one other difference! Yesterday, Gangsta not only 'agreed to disagree', but he had the guts to stand up and apologise for the offence he had caused to certain members and I had half hoped that he might get a response in kind, but all he got was a load of half baked 'excuses' for the offence they had certainly caused! Not a very good example to set to young people in my book! Very disappointing!
Touché. I don't want to start this up again. Whilst if I genuinely think that I am wrong, I will apologise unreservedly. What I won't do is fake an apology that I don't truly mean. To my mind that is a worse form of dishonesty and by default an even worse message to the young. It would also indicate a complete lack of respect.
I respect your views, but in this instance I think you are wrong. I could very easily have done a full "sack cloth and ashes job yesterday". Had I done so it would have been completely meaningless. There is and has been a great deal of provocation on this forum. Eventually I reacted. It might well be that in the future I realise that I did overreact. If that is the case an unreserved apology would be forth coming. With the greatest of respect this is simply and Internet forum. My own personal integrity is of far greater importance to me.
