Then does sje get an apology from you. Do I get apologies for personal attacks I got before , do people get apologies from me. Like I said , it does not need to turn into festivus , and whether something warrents an apology is fairly subjective. If you respect the fact that he withdrew his post then dont throw him back in the defendants chair . What has occurred in the thread is already psychologically isolating , pushing it further now feels unnecessary and cruel.
