Retraction II [May. 9th, 2008|12:42 am]
Tomas Gallucci



As most of you know, recently I had a fight with snapper521. I thought that she had used my password to delete comments off of my blog. In my reactionary haste, I not only reposted her deleted comments, I also posted a private conversation that she and I had in an effort to re-affirm what she had already posted, but in more graphic detail.

I was immediately pointed out to me that one could delete frozen comments if they were the one that left them. I did not believe that this was the case as I had dealt with frozen comments before, so I let my post continue to stand. Upon further research I realized that i was wrong on both counts. Few of my readers were amused.

To this end I posted a retraction. However the retraction's genuineness was immediately called into question based in part of what some thought was a shirking of responsibility. I immediately brought the issue to a close hoping to be done with it. This too has proved to be utter folly.

Therefore, I did the unthinkable: I made sure that Google had cleared their cache of the offensive post and then I called snapper521 and apologized. We discussed the matter clearly stating both sides of the issue and have come to terms.

I do apologize to snapper521 for my misconduct and to my readership for dragging you into the middle of this fiasco and hope to finally lay this issue to rest here with this post.

Thanks for your continued support.

Well, either you're closing your eyes to a situation you do not wish to acknowledge, or you are not aware of the caliber of disaster indicated by the presence of a pool table in your community!

Why sure I'm a billiard player, certainly mighty proud I say - I'm always mighty proud to say it. I consider that the hours I spend with a cue in my hand are golden! Help you cultivate horse sense, and a cool head, and a keen eye. Ever take and try to give an iron-clad leave to yourself from a three-rail billiard shot?

But just as I say it takes judgement, brains, and maturity to score in a balkline game, I say that any boob, can take and shove a ball in a pocket. And they call that sloth!

The first big step on the road to the depths of degrada-- I say, first, medicinal wine from a teaspoon, then beer from a bottle! And the next thing ya know your son is playin' for money in a pinch-back suit; And listening to some big out-a-town jasper hearing him tell about horse-race gambling!

Much better. Could use less "what some thought was a shirking of responsibility" and more "I do apologize to snapper521 for my misconduct", but it's sounding somewhat more genuine and less self-serving.

Where I come from, 'snapper' means something completely different:

I'm lost... then again, I doubt I care too much. It doesn't sound like any of my business, but public apologies are USUALLY honorable.

Are you implying that this one is not?

Why is it so hard to say I am sorry?!!

I guess it is hard to say, I am an idiot too. No, I am not implying you are an idiot. I'm just making a comparison.

"I am an idiot, say a little louder.
I am an idiot, couldn't be prouder!"

I think its easy to say you're sorry once you realize you're wrong. Most people refuse to admit the being wrong part. They think somehow it makes them weak, I think.

It's not that I didn't think I was wrong, it was that I thought there where more who needed to shoulder the blame. I didn't see the cross being borne like I thought it should.
