I would like to publicly apologize for my remarks, which were far too harsh for the circumstances. I can only plead that I was trying to be far too clever, and not thinking about how it would come across. No, to be perfectly honest, it was more culpable than that. I had a niggling feeling I was being naughty, and I ignored it. Shame on me. I will try to pay better attention to my conscience in the future.
Oh, I'm not the person you were responding to, and probably the less entitled one to speak in the name of everyone else here, but I feel like doing so to say that in all earnestness I'm quite sure no one took any offense out of your words. Despite the slight harshness, they're above all witty. Just as usual: and that's the style we all like!
