For reasons I won't go into, yesterday I was in a far from neutral emotional state and was unaware of it at the time. As a result, I lashed out at kleinbl00 in a comment that was inappropriate in more ways that one. Needless to say, had I known what kind of state I was in, I would not have been on Hubski at the time. I'm not trying to excuse my behavior or absolve myself of any responsibility for my words, but just add some context to them.
kleinbl00, I am deeply and terribly sorry for what I had said and for causing you any hurt or distress. Similarly, nil, ButterflyEffect, OftenBen, Devac, mitra, am_Unition, elizabeth, and to anyone else who read my comment and was concerned, insulted, or otherwise hurt by what I said, I am also deeply and terribly sorry. I genuinely love and appreciate everyone on Hubski and my words and actions yesterday, to say the least, did not reflect the regard I hold you all in. I cannot apologize enough.
mk, I'm really sorry for metaphorically tossing the table and walking away in your wonderful tree thread.
I struggle sometimes, to be a good person. Clearly this is one of those times. I'm gonna take a break from Hubski for a few days, try to find my center, and hopefully I'll be back for Pubski. I kind of hope I will, it's the last one of this decade and Christmas, so it's kind of a big deal. Please forgive me everyone, and if you can't that's okay. More importantly though, continue being beautiful. You're all genuinely wonderful.
Edit: Thank you all, so very much, for your patience, understanding, and kind words. It means so very much.
