Re: attempting to be a voice of reason...
In reality, people have contacted you and apologized to you.
Well -- here I think we have a difference of opinion as to what constitutes an apology.
Saying "I'm sorry you were upset by this situation" to me is NOT the same as saying "I'm sorry that things that I did made you upset." To me the first is much, much weaker -- not really an apology at all. It is more an expression of regret at hurt feelings, but (to me) not taking any responsibility for having done anything to cause those hurt feelings. To me, that is not an apology.
If I had received a sincere "I'm sorry my actions upset you" apology, my reaction would have been different.
I have also only heard from one person here -- not the other. At all.
I'm not saying you don't have a right to be angry.
Thank you very much for having said that!
The feedback I had been receiving from others was that because I was a secondary, I had no right whatsoever to be upset. And that attitude got me even more upset.
