Dear Mr. or Ms. Someone-who-knows-better,

I owe you an apology. I didn't approve your comment of August 27th in reply to my post of July 21 until today because it ended up in the spam bucket (imagine that!) and I didn't see it until today. Sorry about that.

It's my policy to allow all comments unless they are clearly spam or in poor taste. I don't want you to think that I deliberately censored your freedom of expression, even when you're using that freedom to trash me from behind the cover of a fake email address and spoofed Internet address.

I don't consider your rant in poor taste…honestly. I think you have some unresolved issues, but you have the right to say whatever you like about me. Even on my blog, on my nickel. It's clear we have met, or worked together, or maybe even shared a meal or two. Who knows? Who cares?

What's clear, though, is that you took personally something I said on July 21 …a full month later. How could that be? What makes you think it's addressed to you or anyone in particular? Are we cutting a little too close to the bone somehow? Did you recognize something in you that made you see red? Are you so sure it's about you?

Being just a little self-centered there, don't you think? I wouldn't want this to veer off into into something really pathological. So, calm down…we're all good, you and me (whoever you are).

Oh, by the way, if you have anything else you'd like to say, go ahead…this blog is open…I'll just spend more time looking in the trash folder. Promise.
