Sometimes I forget that people are different. What doesn't offend me might be offensive to someone else. Now that doesn't make me a better person than them but it DOES offer me the opportunity to learn from them and become a better person internally.
I may have unintentionally offended a few bloggers that I admire recently by doing exactly what I know I would appreciate. I must learn to keep certain aspects of my personality bottled up here locally instead of letting it explode in other forums.
This is why I created this place after all. Perhaps my rough, combative nature forged in rude forums has created a monster. :)
