    It's all my fault so I will be banning myself until I can learn to behave.

    As Patsy says, not to worry. No apology needed. I've forgotten already what the circumstances were; silly squabble, I think.

    This reminds me of when I managed a ward full of geriatric patients. As you I used to have to holar out at some stage of the day. "Behave the lot of you. Otherwise you went get your supper" :)

    It was a "one word" disagreement that I had with another member. The member got fairly offended, but I seen statements by other members that could have related to the word I used. The member I'm talking about is very nice, but sometimes a person can take a word and.......well, whatever. The word was pertaining to the picture shown and nobody else. I used the word to simply say how I felt about the picture. There are certain things in life today that some of us older folks simply don't understand and this picture was one of them.

    I'm sorry if I offended the member, but the word I use really did describe how I felt about the picture. When a person puts a new Thread on a forum or replies to a Thread, "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly" can happen. I done a couple of new Threads on another Senior forum and boy did I get bashed for them. Something dealing with a relative of mine and about smoking. Thing about it was, some of the smokers really belted me, while the non-smokers completely understood me. Just never know.

    I wouldn't worry @Cody Fousnaugh. We all offend somebody at some time on a forum. I think if we come from different countries our written word can be misunderstood. No nuance in the written word.

    Forget about it and be true to yourself. :)

    As for myself, I get terribly offended when I understand what I am saying but others do not. Or, maybe I just get offended when they understand what I am saying and choose not to respond the way I expect them to. Or, maybe I'm not so much offended as confused because I do not understand what I just said and others know exactly what I said.
    Actually, I do not get offended nor confused because being perplexed takes up all of the essential time I would need to be offended or confused. Yeah, maybe that's it, .............or not.

    It's everybody else because I am always right............except when I'm not which couldn't be more than 50% of the time except when it's less ...........or more.........sometimes.

    Your "double speak" is commendable! Were it fact that I knew you were not above becoming a political candidate, I would recommend you for Congress!

    Though, my recommendations have always been ignored, by those in high and lofty places. ;)

    @Bobby Cole "It's everybody else because I am always right"

    And I thought I was wrong, once, but I was mistaken........

    Ah, but there is nothing inherently wrong with being mistaken unless it is truly wrong as opposed to being right.
    It's just when a mistake was mistook for an ideal proposition but in a final philosophical approach, a realization that idealism is impossible at best which in the state of the proposition's finality we find that it was really just a dern mistake and nothing more.

    Now tell me, who on earth could be offended by that?

    I do not believe that your recommendations have been ignored by those in high and lofty places rather than they have been ignored for so long they no longer know when they are really being spoken to.

    I've often wondered: Are Hyperbolic Functions the root source for Hyperbole?

    I actually believe that it's the other way around for hyperbolic would define the hyperbole but then, the whole matter could be highly exaggerated.

    Which one is more offensive? And, was anyone really offended? "The lady tooted soooo loud it could be heard on the other side of the city."
    The lady who tooted or the people who had an odiferous experience on the other side of town?

    Guru's high atop grand mountains have pondered about such things for a millennia.

    That "K" -word I don't care to go into, and no, I have not seen her infamous video, which I heard about somewhere. Seems maggots found in the trash sometimes become butterflies.....

    If there is a choice it would have to be moths. The K folks are very expensive and we all know that butterflies are free.

    It's funny how expensive things can still be tasteless, the moth knows it has no purpose but still likes to hog the light. :p
