It is my fault.
I was wrong.
I spoke carelessly and hurt people I care about.
I hurt them to the point that they won't let me say I'm sorry.
My intentions however harmless, had results that I never imagined. Now they see me as someone I do not believe I am. But my actions toward them tell them that I am that kind of person.
In tears and sorrow, I am heartily ashamed of myself.
I wish to make it right, but I know I can't.
I wish I could explain myself better... to help them see what I really meant. I am afraid any attempt to do so would result in my digging a bigger hole than I already have.
I was rude and insensitive.
I am too blunt and tactless.
I forgot that computer messages are notoriously bad medium for touchy subjects.
This is the best I can figure out to do. I publicly apologize. I provide the following links so that people can see for themselves how I have behaved badly. This is my public confession. I will do my utmost, with God's help, to change my ways.
The original post to which I made a comment. ( Update: After publishing I realized that since all commenting has been removed, you are no longer able to see my horribly insensitive comment. This is also why I cannot apologize where the damage was done.)
The results and response to my actions.
I am sure that many others of you will be as horrified as I am that such a wonderful blogger is closing his blog because of my actions. I am truly, truly sorry. Those words cannot convey the depths of my sorrow, but they are the only ones I have.
