Your accusation, which you now state was due to a misreading was rather significant. It was a friend who asked me if i heard the latest rumor, that led me to find out what was said.
You should know how even false statements can get passed around as if they were true, when there is no validity to them. I have even seen some people bullied to the extent they got tired and quit the game.
Would you want that done or said about you? I doubt it. So, consider how you might respond. I agree i was a bit blunt, but from reading some of your post, i imagine ypur response had someone made such an attack or claim against you would have met even greater wrath than my own.
I appreciate the retraction and apologize if you felt my reaction is more blunt than what you may have done or said if you were on the recieving end.
Keep em in the fairway. And there is tougher competition than me at TL... you will see.
