It has been brought to my attention that my manner, my attitude or perhaps the tone of my posts in this Forum could be, and likely has been, offensive to some of our women members.

While it's true that I am more comfortable talking man speak with the men, still I meant no one in this Forum any offense whatever.

To the ladies that I may have inadvertently harmed or to those that I could have been off-putting, I offer you my sincere apologies.

We are all different as humans and how we tell things and how we like to be told. I personally like your straight forward and penetrating way of asking questions or responding. In me you trigger thought without beating around the bush, just what I need.

Not for all persons is "straight at it" what is helpful. Maybe we should remeber that a "straight at it" is from one perspective that is to be taken into consideration, but there might be other perspectives as well. It is up to us to choose what we listen to and what we do with it.

What I wanted to say is, that for me your ways are useful. But maybe not for everyone. As for me the soft, careful words are not the ones that do the most. I want to get right at it, look at it, deal with it, and move on. You help with that. And we need voices from all, and for all, personalities.

Hi joel.

No apologies needed towards me.

I want it straight. I like your no prisoners taken approach. If others are offended, well all they have to do is delete you from them reading your answers/posts.

As for me I'm a big boy.

Heal well my brother/friend/confidant.

Hi Joel,

I dont understand how anybody could take offence at what you post as I have never read a post of yours that is offensive, and never a post that is deliberate ly offensive. I have read posts of yours thave been challenging and spot on, never hurtfull.
Who ever said that to you deserves to give an apolagy to you as I can not understand where they are comeing from. I love your honesty and natural ability to say it how it is. Do not let this hick up change your style of posting.

In real life I would like to think that I'm empathetic and kind, but I accept that I'm also opinionated and to the point, sometimes I hope I'm able to get my point across using dry humour (maybe I don't...... lol).

I often wonder if I manage to convey what I want to say and how I want to say it via forums or text, in an ideal world possibly I wouldn't have a need for such avenues.

In real life I'm incredibly sensitive and vunerable to critisim, unfortunately this doesn't change when I have the protective armour of the www.

I haven't been offended by any of your posts, and enjoy your style, but I do think its healthy for anybody using a forum such as this to remember that others can not see if we are typing something with a jovial smirk or a protective arm around the shoulders.

Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
