Apology

Post by Bmat »

A member expressed unhappiness with an issue in this forum, and I joked instead of taking care of the matter.

I apologize to the member and to SV.

Llew is right. Because :
A)

When people agree with me I always feel that I must be wrong.-- Oscar Wilde --
The member did _not_ agree with you. Quod Erat Demonstrandum.

A leader or a man of action in a crisis almost always acts subconsciously and then thinks of the reasons for his action.-- Jawaharlal Nehru --
The joke may have diffused the situation whereas any other option might have aggravated it.
C)

Time is the tamer of everything (English : time heals everything), the Hellenes say, chronos is panthamator. Chronos is time, pan is everything, thamator is tamer (masc. nomin. sing.) from thamazo tame (first person sing. Present Indicative, and bare infinitive).

Time shall do its work no matter what.
D)

The matter took care of itself in this way.

Llew is right.

Turns to stare questioningly at the innocent bystanders, spreading arms, shoulders shrugged:
