There's nothing that said you did something wrong. It says please do this, and here's why. My post does not say a single thing about any action or inaction of yours. You are inferring from the context that it mentioned your action/inaction. But now I'm getting pedantic, and that's not helpful.
> And the Pardon Me? Which is how you started the post off , is that a way to calm the situation down, as a poster, as a deputy?
It was my way of expressing my surprise, and it signaled that a question about what was said was likely to follow.
> Do you think you had any role in the strong feelings on this board.
Are you referring to your apparent strong feelings, or something else? My general view on emotions, strong or otherwise is that they would not be stimulated if someone were indifferent to the stimulus. So the emotions/strong feelings come from the person having them. It might be related to something about me, but only if they are not indifferent to begin with.
Specifically in this thread, I do think that the subject line of my first post to you probably wasn't all that nice. In thinking about this now, I remember that I was writing the post more just to point out an option for you. Then I figured I'd include the FAQ, since it had the link in it. That must have somehow shifted me into more of a deputy mindset, and the post took on a more "official" tone to me. Then I signed it as a deputy, which was not really my intent when I started writing it. These days, I'm doing a terrible job at doing just one thing at a time, and a post window may stay open on my computer for quite some time before I finish it.
I would imagine a more cut and paste, standard language reminder about the notification button would be more appropriate when writing as a deputy. And a more general, casual reminder without a link to the FAQ or any standard language would be more appropriate when writing that as just GG. So I apologize for smooshing that together and making the post ambiguous.
> > As to your other beliefs, there's not a damn thing I can do that would influence them, nor can I influence your feelings. I certainly can't influence your behavior, either. Taken altogether, it does leave me a bit puzzled as to why such strong feelings have developed. I certainly don't feel as if anything I say or do could matter that much to any one person on the internet. But I can sit with not understanding that, at least at the moment.
> I answered those questions above.
I'm not sure which questions you're referring to.
> > I wish you peace, HF. I have no desire to wish otherwise.
> Sorry but after the recent posts, I have a hard time believing that. (present and past)
I believe you. And yet I do wish that just the same.
