This will require a modicum of delicacy ... never my strong suit, I'm afraid.
I then proceeded to demonstrate the truth of that statement, it seems.
A bit later in that same post, I said:
... this is not mere idle pedantry on my part, but a means to achieving the underlying point driving this post.
Whatever that point might have been, it failed to achieve it's mark.
Since intent plays no part in determining offense, I can only offer my sincere apology and hope forgiveness will be forthcoming. If an edit or outright removal of the post under discussion should be felt to be in order, the offended party knows how to contact me. I am quite willing to do either should that be desired.
