I screwed up: a public apology

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by UnderReviewFor3Years (a host of the General Discussion forum).

Last night, while entirely sober (but sleepy and in a foul mood), I wrote a post that I was sure would be locked in moments.

It wasn't a bad post, so the GD hosts let it stand, even though it was technically on the edge of acceptability (at least in my own opinion).

Within a short time, I was astonished and a little irritated by how many recs the thing was getting, which prompted me to add an update that was an attempt at self-deprecation, but ended up casting aspersions on the GD hosts.

(Irritated by recs? Of course I love recs, but when silly little lightweight posts get more recs than important stuff, like people starving and America going down in flames, it drives me nuts.)

Sorry. My bad. I should have known better.

I did not mean to cast aspersions on the fine hosts in GD, they sure don't deserve it. In fact, they were being amazingly good and tolerant (as usual), by allowing my original screed to stand.

Again, I'm sorry. I'll try to do better in the future.

Peace to all.

Manny

7. lovely, and many thanks

you may start to see things in a bit of a different light around here. There are many fools but your name is golden and you can do no wrong. So many times I beg people to focus on the content and not on anything else. This is a perfect example. Good for you!

10. As usual...

The first thread was seen by many. This one will sink and NEVER get a single rec more than it has right now. I knew it. No toys for you, this year, Manny.
