I appriciate the attitude you have. Its not always the case that a guy
takes a look at something and then apologizes. I understand that you may
not agree with what I said, but I had to say it. I'm sure that while
writing that response you were'nt as "freaked" as you sounded. : ) You'll
have to excuse me. I'm usually not so rude and I do have some form of
politeness lingering around me. I guess I'm just tired of all the crap I
read re: any type of "CyberBashing". Yours may have been on the
CyberBashing scale of 1 out of a possible 10 but I guess that was it for
me. Note that I have not in any way asked for you never to speak again, but
rather speak with a cool tongue. Again - thanks and happy Mem. Day.
