[xj] The Elusive Smiley

“Charlie” <@Charles_Nowlin>

Dear Craig, and listers,
I offer my apology, for starting this thread incident.
It was a knee-jerk reaction, on my part.( with the emphasis on “jerk”)
When I first read the paragraph, I was incensed, by the language, and
was upset at it’s demeanor. I felt I had to rebut the tone, and content,
and set upon a quick, angry reply.

Later, when I re-read the paragraph, after Craig had pointed out the Smiley,
I had that sinking feeling, that comes like a freight train, when one
realizes…
OOPS! Now what did I do! I just made an A*s of myself.

Please, forgive my “instant reply” reaction.
I’ll promise not to reply to any further posts, of this sort,
until the next day, when I have had a chance to reread it,
and the initial reaction will have somewhat subsided.

Being an admin. I should have had better sense.
But I too, am human, and prone to errors.

However I am man enough, to admit my mistakes,

and ask for the list’s acceptance of my apology for the furor.

I think, that we have come a long way, to the understanding
that there are different strokes for different folks.
( I’ve been known to be wrong before)
And that, what you do, with something that belongs to you,
is strictly your own business, no matter what the world thinks.

I thank those that came to my defense, based on my posting…
You know who you are, and I need not start another incident.

For those that have not yet reached a level of understanding,
I respect your point of view, even though I may not agree to follow it.

Humbly yours,

         Charlie
         Lumps Admin.

Dear Craig, and listers,

However I am man enough, to admit my mistakes,

and eloquent to boot… I don’t think anyone who knows you around here will
think any the less of you… To err is human… And next time it will be my
turn (again)…

Besides, when am I ever going to have another excuse to mention the Gordon
Keeble on the list, to say nothing of the Clan Clover Crusader :sunglasses:

Cheers,

Loudon,
I agree. . Anyone as helpful as Charlie, and as willing to give of his time,
is certainly allowed an occasional faux pas. His apology to the list was
written in true “officer and gentleman” fashion----no surprise there,
considering the source.

Not to detract one iota from Charlie but I would like to add that there are
many fine people on this list and I enjoy and appreciate corresponding with
you all.

Now, that being said…what exactly WAS the posting that caused all the
fuss ? I must’ve missed it ! No, don’t bother. Clearly water under the
bridge and best left that way.

My best to all,

Charley,

Well said, and I hope I’m at your level when I think of this appropriate
epitaph for myself (anyway): How wrong I was so many times!
