Good grief. This Metatalk thread is like watching a traffic accident in slow motion. What is it about the act of posting on a website that makes people reluctant to take responsibility for their actions? Is it the anonymity factor? (i.e. “If nobody knows my real name, I don’t have to say I’m sorry.”) Yeah, it sucks when people gang up on you, but if you’ve made a genuine error, admit it and move on. The Net would be a much nicer place for all of us.
