Oh, I did not take it as an insult to me. I was just embarrassed for you that you felt the need to describe your OMs in diapers fetish here on eHam. It was not appropriate.
No need for you to feel embarrassed for me. It's apparent that you're not capable of a
decent discussion or accepting an apology from someone who thought they may have
offended you in some manner.
Have a nice day.
You only apologized AFTER
eHam removed your post where you said to me "don't get your panties in a bunch"
, so I do not accept your apology as sincere. Up to that point, I had never insulted you personally or had called you any names. You are the one who started that, James. It seems to me that you are the one not capable of a decent discussion. When I disagreed with something you said, you resorted to casting dispersions in my direction instead of arguing with me in a respectful and civilized manner.
Gene, I did not see that this thread, nor the post I made (and that you quoted) had been
removed for several hours ( I work 12-16 hr days in the oilfield). And that was after I had
written the administrator of the website asking about the removal of the thread. And then
I checked here and the thread was back, minus the post you are talking about.
I had told the administrator that since I had offended you in a public place, (this forum) that
I would apologize to you in that same public place. And I have been attempting to do so.
Whether or not you believe it, the apology is sincere. It was not my intention to offend you in the first place.
That particular remark you quoted is commonly used (at least it is among a lot of people I know)
and is meant in more of a teasing(for lack of a better description) manner than as an outright insult. I should have not used that, and for that, I, again, apologize.
When I started this thread, I was really hoping that people with more knowledge of SDR than
myself, (which, I admit would not take much!
) would comment on the specifications given
for the device . It seems to me, to have some potential.
When you more or less, completely dismissed it, for lack of a complete review, it kind of floored
me. That was why I asked if you had missed the statement where the author of that review
(Preview would have been a better description since it was not an in-depth review of the hardware and software working) stated he would be following up with a more detailed review, with the hardware working. I was not trying to be rude with that statement, I simply thought that you had
missed that part. From that point things went downhill. And I should have simply stopped at that
point. But, like a lot of people, sometimes, I keep talking even though, I know it is of no use.
Once again, my apologies to you for anything I have said that you find insulting or offensive.
NO insult or offense was ever intended.
