Isabel, I was not personally offended, but it seemed that others were and I suspected others would be. I think your apology will be welcomed by them. There is nothing wrong with big personalities and strong opinions. You obviously feel strongly about this topic. On CDH, because I find this to be such a special community, I try very hard to be sensitive to how others might react to my comments.
On other fora, I’m not as careful and I have a tendency to shoot first and aim later. FWIW, those tend to be political commentaries and I’ll leave it at that.
