About my post earlier yesterday, to all those who responded, Im totally sorry about that. I didnt mean for it to come across as it did, but it did. So Im making a public apology on behalf of me and my company, as the Lord says, "Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us." And I apologize for the eddicate conducted earlier, wasnt very business like, or good to make friends.

Oh yeah, and, as much as it's a sin to post a link to your own site, it's even worse to waste our bandwidth with your apology.

I can understand if you didn't know the rules, in which case we accept your apology wholeheartedly... But you still should have replied under the original post, even if no one would've seen it.

Why must we be such sticklers for the 'rules'?

How much of your time was wasted by reading the apology?

So Eric a link to his own site - I did that once, and it didn't kill anyone.

I stick around MetaFilter because it's a vibrant and intelligent community - constant emphasis on the official regulations is unnecessary.

I was very annoyed by the whole thing because it was bad form (and spam, in my opinion). Thank you for apologising. All is forgiven (at least by me).

((Sigh))... come on folks...

All's forgiven dude. Looking forward to your next post. :0)

This is sort of happening in metatalk, actually.

I find it funny that people complain about how much time is wasted by these occasional posts (and, far as I can tell, heartfelt apologies for said posts) by taking more time and typing another reply.

Anyone trying to spam this scene has got to be a special kind of moron.

LoL. I know some of the people who run Circle Graphics. I assure you, in the right hands, FrontPage is a valuable tool. Don't be a fool. Hendrix could kick anyones ass on a $20 minature guitar from K-Mart, even if they had a $1500 Les Paul.

Thanks for responding and forgiving fellas, now maybe I can actually use MeFi for what it 's supposed to be used for, informational purposes and good entertainment.
