Making Amends to Wally P.

Postby Dallas » Mon Jul 06, 2009 7:39 am

I've been searching through the forums here and found some of my posts that seemed to me -- that they could have been interpreted by someone else -- to be pretty rough comments in regards to Wally P., and Back to Basics. They were not intended to be critical, or harsh, but I could see that I wasn't careful enough in the communication of my ideas -- that it might appear to some -- that I was criticizing Wally and B2B. (Email me if you want a link to the B2B site I can't post it here...)

Wally, I'll contact you directly to make my amends directly to you. I'm also posting this here in the forum -- because this was the place that I did the wrong. So, I'm acknowledging it here.

To the others on the site:

If you come across any messages here that I have posted -- that have the appearance of being inappropriate ... in regards to Wally or anyone else... I encourage you to please help me locate them by sending me a link to them... so that I can make amends. I've been trying to locate and remove the one's that I could notice might appear offensive or inappropriate. (And, the one's that were!)

I'll do my best to do my best -- in the future. And, with your help, I'll be able to do a better job of it.

There are some pukes that deserve harsh criticism (Wally is not one of them, he has been doing a great work for the Fellowship)... However, I don't need to be the one to give them the harsh criticism that they deserve. :lol:

There are times when a puke thinks I'm criticizing them.... when I'm not criticizing them... and, that's not my business or my problem. It's their problem. It's a result of their "thinking about their self" that makes them think I'm criticizing them. I can't take responsibility for their thinking. That's their deal and I can't do anything about it.

Now, if you are reading this and you think I'm referring to you -- that's your thinking -- it isn't my thinking. So, if it offends you -- change your thinking.... if you don't want it offending you. If I could change your thinking -- I would have done so a long time ago! :wink:

Only you can stop pitying yourself and whining about it. I can't do that for you.

If I'm criticizing you -- I'll be sure to let you know! I promise you I won't be hiding it with subtle inferences -- if I've criticized you I will admit it and I won't deny it. When in doubt -- just ask. It's that simple. :wink:

Best regards,

Dallas B.
