I, for one, appreciate this, Larry.

I have admitted, and continue to admit, that the tone of my reply was
driven by past interactions with neo/paleo-Steeliete s far less gracious
and loving than yourself.
What I did not say explicitly, and should have, is that I did indeed
treat the original poster unfairly. As I re-read my original post I was
shamed by my treatment of her and would like to apologize for that.
I could easily have made my points just as well with a better attitude
and not by imputing others' past sin to the poster.
It is a sad tendency of the human heart to seek to continue justifying
itself when it should know better.. I committed that sin today.
I did not examine my behavior closely enough when first called to
account, and apologize to the list for that as well.
