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.
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.

If you felt like you were being rude than there is nothing wrong with an apology. Any little bitch can be an asshole, especially on the internet where there are no real world repercussions. It is much more difficult to be gracious and to humble oneself. Mark of a gentleman in my opinion.
Good on ya, don't think i ever read anything to bad of yours on the buzz, at least by comparison, but hiding behind a key board just being an ass just kinda sucks, this forum should be helpful, not a bunch of bozoes with computer's. Heck, you could even say it takes a real man to admit when he's wrong, or at least an adult.
Being sarcastic seems to be in my nature. Could be all these years of being married to my sarcastic wife. But I will blame myself because I don't try and lay my faults off on other people. There is already to much of that going around.
