5433RE: Early French Handwriting
- Oct 8, 2008Hi Joyce and all,
I wish to apologize to Joyce for my arrogant know it all messages that
served to discredit her for a talk I did not attend, so for which I have no
knowledge of what she said or did not say there. I thoughtlessly jumped in
without properly stating that I was not in attendance and so my remarks were
off the cuff.
Although I did not intend to discredit her or devalue her advice, I realize
that is how it came out and I am truly sorry.
I too hope the unnamed gentleman and others try the website. Thank you Joyce
for pointing it out. Another confession, I never visited the website before
jumping into the discussion publicly. Also I was the one who should have
taken the discussion off the list after seeing how my message came across to
Joyce and probably to the rest of you. I should not have subjected those of
you on this list to any of this discussion. My bad all around.
I hope Joyce will forgive me and we can once again at least someday go back
to our previous state of friendliness. I know I don't deserve it, but I hope
Joyce will be the better woman and forgive me. I also hope it is not the
last time she gives a talk. Although I did not attend, I know from the last
Quebec SIG meeting she had valuable experiences and insight to offer me as
well as the others in attendance.
I know I will certainly strive to lose my know it all attitude and treat
others with respect. Sometimes I must admit I just jump in to save the day
when there is no saving necessary.
With sincere apologies to Joyce and all of you,
From: J. Metcalfe [mailto:roots938@...]

Hi everyone on this list,
Before this thread is, I hope, allowed to just die, there are three
apologies I would like to make publicly:
1) To the unnamed gentlemen to whom my initial post on this thread was
addressed and intended - I'm sorry my original post to you initiated this
catastrophe and I hope you will still consider investigating the URL I
posted relative to your question. It is, in my opinion, a very good
2) To Diane Granger - I'm sorry to forgetting and resorting to using
quotation marks. It is a bad habit that I will have to work harder to
3) To Xenia - I'm sorry to using the phrase "rip into." It was harsh and
only served to exacerbate the situation.
