I don't know what you mean by LBK being wrong, I didn't read far back enough to decipher that, but Shiny's post was the trigger for me to withdraw from the forum. In that way, I mean, I felt it was both of our faults. I knew I would get a rise out of him when I posted what I did, I just didn't realize it was going to escalate to that extent. Once that happened, I figured if I did not quit posting, I was going to get both of us banned. I had hoped that perhaps the thread was hid quickly enough that the issue could just be smoothed over and everyone get put on moderated status for awhile and then it would be over. That didn't happen unfortunately.
I will emphasize that I think the moderators were put in a very difficult situation. I do not envy their position and regardless of what action that took, they were going to be criticized. I think all of them that were involved did their very best to curtail further inflammation and hard feelings. In that, I think they did the best they could and I commend them for it.
I once again apologize for my involvement and if Shiny still lurks, I hope he is willing to accept my apology for my role in the matter. I don't harbor any ill feelings towards anyone here.
Ok, I think this will be my last post, otherwise, I'll get drawn back into posting and I don't want to do that yet.
