    I am sorry to have gone over the top in reply to your 2 recent vaccination threads.
    This is a subject close to my heart, but I overreacted.
    Again, my apologies.

    Thank you, Sky ... an apology wasn't necessary, but it's most certainly accepted. Really, like I had said, I didn't take any of it with a personal offense. I respect your opinion and think you make some very valid points that I agree with. Believe me, I have nothing but respect for you. Oh, and yes, it can be an emotional topic, so it's totally understandable.

    Sorry for the delayed response btw. ... my daughter and I are putting together a little city skyline with building blocks lol.

    I am glad I read your post, I was about to say exactly the same thing, the part about the internet. You guys apologizing and accepting is not part of the rules, I don't know how to comprehend the meaning of all this....but it does feel good.:applause:

    unwritten rules...

    Way back when usenet was forum life & there were no real moderators, except someone tattling to your ISP to get you in trouble w/ them... a guy told me:

    In other words, don't offend others & don't get offended. Don't put out personal attacks & don't take things as personal attacks...

    It seems that, even though that's the most basic of common courtesy rules, some people can't even hold that towards fellow community members.

    It goes down basically to the Golden Rule & treating others like you want to be treated. If you act like an asshole, be prepared to be treated as one. Be cool, & people will be cool w/ you.

    Like Alvis said, in another thread:

    Even in disagreement, we should be able to respectfully disagree.
