I'd like to apologize to whomever I've offended with the thread I started yesterday. I was reading the "4000 posts about nothing" thread. I thought a funny idea would be to post what we thought various members of the forum would say when they met each other. In the 4000 posts thread, I think there were 7-8 times in the first page alone, where someone here was mentioned by name. My idea was, instead of put them in a story, imagine what various people would say to each other when they met in person. I planned to work many more people into the store as it developed and other guys played along. Somehow, what I said or the way I said it was so offensive that the very first post called it out. CP got involved before I could even post a couple comments they'd make to each other to get the ball rolling, and make it clear what I was doing, but he was obviously on board... Before I could even check back, the thread had offended enough people to get reported and shut down before it even got on track to what it was supposed to be. I re-read my OP last night. I guess when your mind is completely thinking one way and about doing something you think is funny, sometimes you have a hard time understanding how people could misunderstand you so much. Like starting to tell a joke and getting cut off before anyone even knows that the joke is about. But, clearly it bothered people, so whether I get it or not, I AM SORRY. I've been spending a little too much time here and gotten a little too comfortable. My apologies for that as well.
