I'm aware that "Feeling Tersed" is improper grammar. It was penned tongue-in-cheek because I used the word terse and its derivatives(?)
several times in the post. But now that you mentioned it, and as I penned this reply, I am mistaken. For as it stands, even if incorrect, it's like I'm stating that here is my tersed reply to your terseness, which is not the case. I didn't want to come across as terse myself--just state how I feel/felt. The rest of the post I'm stating behind at this penning.
A little sensitive are we Phinnaeus? I didn't really understand you comment either, so I can see why tetra4c misinterpreted it. How exactly were you complimenting him?
I just reread my original post that tetra4c committed on. OOPS!!! As I read it now, you seem correct. I blame that post on the
Bossa Nova German beer
being tired (that's the ticket) when I wrote it. That said, I can now see how tetra4c can easily misinterpret it, although I still feel that his post came across--can I say?--terse, to me.
Sorry if I came across sensitive, but at the time, it hit my sensitive nerve. I would like to offer up an olive branch to tetra4c, and if he accepts it, I would also like to pledge 1 BTC by proxy to the Bitcoin100 in his name, if he states to me that he wouldn't mind if I do such. No apology on his part is needed.
Note to self: Keep your
pen shut, otherwise it could become expensive.
It's aaaaalllll good - no problems!
Yes, my remark was not-so-nice but I think you see how I perceived your remark. Admittedly, I’m *horrible* at PR stuff for TH and that's why I typically stay away from it. I try to satisfy everyone but it's almost impossible. When I try too, it often comes off as "cotton-balling" as one person described it. It’s something I’m improving.
I'd like to participate from a more neutral stand point in the forums and hence I created this account. I'm not concerned if people know it's me but I'd prefer that every time I post *the regulars* don't point and say, "Hey, it's Adam from TH". I know to some extent that’ll be impossible because of the role we play – but, so be it! Plus, our ethics ARE important. I think most people who know us see that we are straight business people.
Mind you, for TH related items I still log in as Adam S (TradeHill).
So, that’s it! Slam down a ‘bier’ for me – just don’t go getting crazy on the forums drunk!
You also have my apologies for the not-so-nice remarks in the post!
Thank you, Adam. I truly love this post.
