Thank you Mrs G.

It just so happens that I stopped by my storage unit to pick out some more pictures from the good old days! I'm now sitting in the McDonalds next door, enjoying a $1 coffee, and their free wifi.

I'll have another post up soon. I'm glad you are enjoying the posts.

But to your question: Could I delete this post?

Yes, I could. But I don't like to exercise too heavy a hand around here. Yes, I could correct Clayton's mistake, but that would deprive him, and others here, of an opportunity to learn.

Part of what I'm trying to do - and this ties into posting pictures and stories of myself when I was younger - is to help people understand that there is a person behind this whole operation (me). Not only that, but behind every screen name is a person.

People are free to post here. My pressure on Clayton is an attempt to increase the cost of posting: To make people think twice before they do something like this again. That actions do have consequences, and ultimately everyone has to answer for their actions.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to explain this as well.

To be mean is never excusable, but there is some merit in knowing that one is; the most irreparable of vices is to do evil out of stupidity. - C.B.
