    Public Apology to Wogster

    Few days ago, I disagreed with some of his comment/opinions as I often do. But that was no reason for me to attack him with negative comments about his decent character. In a forum where we actually talk about cycling and other related issues, pass around valuable advice to one another, and all while being respectful to one another, I feel the need to apologize to Wogman. What I posted was uncalled for and distasteful. Sorry Dude!

    If there is one thing that I have learrned from having a beautiful very unconfrontational wife, it's that a real man apologizes for his uneccesary actions and hurtful words when they are undeserved. I'm being a man and apologizing cause Wogman didn't deserve the attack and I/we must make an honest effort to keep this forum friendly. I also apologize to other cyldes and athenas that may have read the material, although nothing like attacks elsewhere onthenet, it was uncalled for and I apologize. I pride myself on stepping up when I am in the wrong!

    So Wogster, if you were my wife, I'd kiss you on the forehead, say I'm sorry, nibble on your ear a little bit then make love to you. But judging from your avatar, you aren't at all my type so thank God you aren't my wife.

    I deleted the comments/post so you others don't go asking me "what?"

    Yup, that was GREAT advice! In fact, I really don't want to leave this forum if/when I dip below Athena weight. I've tried other subforums here and they just can't compete with this one

    If you think that was impressive, you should have seen the reconciliation emails between Sayre Kulp and me. Then again, our falling out was a lot nastier too. :-(

    I have no idea what happened and it doesn't matter. Beanz - good on you for stepping up and apologizing sincerely, and Wogster - same at you sir for letting it slide off your back and accepting that apology. I come here because of this, there are very nice, caring people sharing their love of cycling without a lot of posturing and egos involved. Sweet.

    Wog did nothing, He posted his opinon and I attacked his character for some unknown reason. Stuff happens but making it right is better than letting the uneccesary tension float around in the air. But good on him for letting it slide off his back even before I apologized. Yeah, this environment keeps 'em coming back to this forum. No sense in spoiling it now

    BTW, this isn't the first time Mr. Beanz has apologized for his postings here. We went at each other a couple of years ago. Like with the Wogster, we reconciled. I think we both recognized the other's awesomeness. :-)

    I don't know what happened but it's good to see a reaffirmation of some norms of self-control and civility in the forum. These are sadly lacking in most of our culture these days.

    There is a time to resign oneself
    to old age and infirmity. You first.

    I'm glad you've reconciled, group hugged, ear nibbled each other in a manly, supportive fashion as befitting the C&A forum.

    But the first pair of people who link arms and starts singing "Kumbaya" are fed to the alligators.

    Still, good we're all friends again!
