Happy Festivus to the Daily Paul!

In the spirit of Michael's recent post and the spirit of the season, I wanted to offer my sincere apologies for anyone who I have been overly insensitive, argumentative or inconsiderate toward. Its so easy online to allow disagreements to become personal battles of wit, ego and insults. While its fun and often fair game, sometimes it can go overboard and someone should be the bigger person even if it is fair game. When taken too far, it is unbecoming of all of us as people, not merely as members of a political community or a specific ideology.

So although I can't promise to be nice all the time and never rejoin insult with insult or be contentious, I can try to moderate it and make amends to those who I've perhaps wronged. Although we're just names, we are people behind the names too. And although the emotional depth of relationships online can never fully be what they are in real life, we can still try to pretend we're really a community in the fuller sense of the word and not treat each other just like faceless names.

Hope this is received in the sincere spirit it is intended. All the best wishes to the DP community this Christmas. I may forgo a festivus post of grievances this year.
