I have to apologize.

It has been brought to my attention that some of you thought I was yelling or being insulting during allot of my post. I however stupid it may sound, did not realize bolds was yelling. I was under the impression that all caps was yelling but now after looking back I get it.

I have disagreed with some but I don't ever remember intentionally yelling. I used bolds and colors to point out things and show what I was responding to. I now understand how it looked and would like to offer my apology to anyone that thought I was yelling or insulting them with the bold text. I do however stand by my opinions just not the way I presented it.

I have posted on here and awful lot and I have helped members and received help from many. I respect others opinions even if I do not agree. I have made allot of friends on here and I would hate to think I was being unfairly judged for this stupid mistake I have made.

I hope this clears things up and I look forward to future threads and post.

As a member here I would like to say you have no need to ask for forgiveness. We all make mistakes or errors in judgement or whatever you want to call it. I count you as a positive force on this forum and I know many others do as well.

That's my two cents.

No worrys, Rich. I think the regulars on this forum, myself included, have a great deal of respect for your knowledge, your advice, and your posts. Honestly, I don't think I even noticed any hostility in any of your posts. That's why I like this forum so much - it's always supportive, helpful, and extremely polite. I occasionally visit a few other forums where the members are rude, hostile, and obnoxious when they don't agree with fellow members (I'm not a fan of the "flamming" concept). In summary, don't worry. If you still feel the need to apologize - it's accepted.

Thanks, for your input.

Terry

No need to apologize for all capping or bold facing. It's a written forum for crying out loud. Or crying out all-caps. Which ever.

+1 As the above posts.

I too, have never noticed or second guessed your intentions.

Disagreeing with a statement is having an opinion, which should always be welcomed....... IMO anyways. That's how I can learn.

aw heck.. I thought Marines were supposed to be bull headed and prone to "strongly" voicing their well thought out opinions. Now don't go all soft on us now. It just wouldn't be natural.

The only problem I had with all the caps and colors is that it hurt my eyes. So, I put on my sunglasses, which helped. Then one day I couldn't find my sunglasses, and all I had to use were some 3D glasses my grandkids left here.

Well, I gotta tell ya-all I was surprised. Richard had us fooled all this time. I thought his posts were just different color choices (I get those urges when I eat old bologna). Anyway when I put on the 3D glasses, VOILA!!

What appeared on my screen was a whole set-up of GI Joe military action figures and machinery. Kinda cool...I remember those from the 60's. It's been a long time since I played with them...many months ago.

Anybody that would get insulted or bothered by you using caps or bold would, in my opinion, not be anyone I would be concerned about.

No apology needed.

Thanks for sharing all of your knowledge with us.

Don't sweat the small stuff Rich, I've got your back.

I've never understood the concept of using caps or bold or anything else to denote emotion. It's completely ineffective, in my opinion, and that's what punctuation is supposed to be for! :)

So, I rarely notice when it happens and read for context and comprehension. Maybe it's just me?

I never pay attention to caps or bold type, a lot of the time I'll type with caps 'cause our program here uses all caps, it takes a little thought to take the cap lock off
