    To the members of Talkbass,

    In May 2004, I started a thread entitled "Beginners: Please start off with a 4 string......" The thread generated intense discussions; so intense that it was eventually shut down. I recognize now that the negative tone of my posts in that thread was offensive to others. And for this, I recognize that I was wrong, and I am sorry for it.

    I will take full responsibility for hurting anyone with my words. My hope is that the members who posted plus the moderators will accept my apologies. And my hope is that all of us as musicians will continue to create music and showcase our talents to the best of our abilities. Once again, my apologies. Peace!

    No harm right?

    And you haven't been banned, so it must all be forgiven.

    Welcome back.

    Why now? Why post the thread again? Many of us weren't around then, so now you've not only brought it up again, but for the first time for many of us.

    You've got to learn to walk the razor edge of propriety.

    Are you in AA? Isn't "asking forgiveness from those you have wronged" one of the steps? ;)

    I totally forgot about that. Maybe it's better to bring it out in the open now instead of later? :confused:

    You are forgiven my son. Don't use any more brain cells to think about this ever again.

    Thanks for telling those who didn't even Know.

    Now, I'm gonna be pissed off if you don't come back here in 2 years apologize.
  19. scatman, that was a lame apology. I am still EXTREMELY pissed about what you said! I'll forgive you, but I won't forget!

    j/k ;)
