    I sincerely apologize if my comments offended you, novice.

    I think that whenever anyone chooses to disclose anything of the magnitude of what Novice said here, their feelings should always be taken into account, so that they receive the support which this group promises in its name.

    I wouldn't say that DC_DEEP was necessarily the one who should be apologizing though, for the way in which some chose to foreground their rhetorical viewpoints over the real-life trauma of another person on that thread.

    Having said that, I also hope that Novice will re-read the thread in question to see that his revelation did strike a chord with numerous others, who took his words and his courage very much to heart.

    It is very good of DC_DEEP to apologize, but I join Alex in suspecting that the real apology needed is still owed by another poster on the Houston thread.

    Also, like Alex, I urge novice to re-read the thread, which gives much evidence that several people read his posts with real sympathy and feeling.

    Novice, you are a valued and much loved member of this community. You have many proofs of that.

    Novice... hugs to you from me, as well (if you still want any). I hadn't taken a look at the Houston thread until just now, and had no idea what was going on. You have a lot of courage, and you deserve much better than you got from some.

    :hug: Chrys

    Novice understands what the apology is for. I was not able to do it in private, so I do it in public. Either way works for me.

    Thanks, accepted, but really, unnecessary. I think our opinions just differ on a couple points, but nothing that needs an apology.

    Sorry about that. For the time being, I've turned off PMing. Apparently Mods can still get thru though.

    Don't apologise! Novice doesn't have normal feelings like the rest of us. He's a robot.
