Personal apology.

I would like to apologise to everyone that I have been sarcastic to. Gary and Green wall, and any others. I am going to keep my posts helpful from now on. That is what this site is supposed to be for.

Did a moderator write this for you?

Now I see why we have Depends ads on the buzz.

No I just decided that I was being a jerk and that doesn't do anybody any good. When I started running rivers years ago people where really helpful and Friendly. Then as the years went by their is all this tension between rafters and kayakers and guides and privateers and I forgot we are all just floating down a river together because that is what we love to do.

One of the best things about the Buzz is diversity of thought. You have your point of view and your delivery. Maybe we don't always have the best approach for everyone. Hell nobody is perfect. But if you change your behaviors, I hope its based on personal growth of who you want to be and not the pressure of those who get all upset and offended way too easy.

It is a little of both. I am pretty thick skinned. Some get bent out of shape pretty easily. This is also for personal growth. I see people all over not willing to help. That is not me. But being a sarcastic ass hiding behind a keyboard is no way to be either.

Sarcasm and assholes don't have to go hand in hand. Right? Don't lose your sarcasm if it's not hateful!

I think a huge problem with forums is it is way to easy to misinterpret what someone is saying. Dry humor and sarcasm which is in good jest is often taken as mean or derogatory. It is too easy to see someone with negative motives when that's not the case.

We should all try and do this more often.

It is a good leadership technique as well as an apology humanizes you which helps create space for healthy report.

Require emoticons for all sarcasm so as not to offend the delicate flowers.
