[Here's what I wrote and absolutely
how I feel about something that I did/wrote
recently. Please take it as a sincere
apology to any who were offended as
well as a warning to those who found it
humorous. We should all use more
care in how we deal with other members
of any society, whether it's online
or off line.]

I do apologize to the person whose words I mocked.
It was meant as satire, but that's a very tricky
thing to handle. I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings.

Oh, I see. The whopper comment.

Oh, my. I didn't think about that.

I didn't think that it would be an innocent
who should have their feelings spared.

But then again we're all innocents and
should be careful of how we speak/write/relate
to our fellows.

My apologies to the person who
had posted (paraphrased):

You WILL remove me from your list!

I just saw humor in that statement and
followed it up with a satire of my own.

Did not mean to be vicious or to compound
any embarrassment for any individual or

Curt, spreading hate and discontent
(unintentionally, but nevertheless...)

</copy of email sent to my list mentor>

There. I hope everyone is having a great
week and looking forward to an enjoyable

Curt, whose goal is *not* to spread hate nor
discontent on the Web or elsewhere, but whose
sense of humor (or lack thereof) often 
"gets in the way."
