    "Apology to Kentucky Rifle"
    Kentucky - I apologize to you and any other members of the forum that took offense at my recent post. I meant no disrespect and simply made a mistake. As to numbers of posts, it didn't give me a clue as some forums have high number posters and do not police as well as the High Road seems to. I include my name to show you and all concerned that I am willing to admit a mistake when made. Good Luck to you and I hope no hard feelings. If I am allowed to continue on this board I will refrain from posting unless, as one noted, I have something constructive to add. Mike Ralston

    Mike .. we all say stuff sometimes without thought or in the ''heat'' of moment. The mere fact you have seen the possible error of your ways is good enough .... and do not feel the need to refrain from posting .... just remember that THR is something special .. and we are in a sense enjoying an extended family.

    Standards are as high as the Road .... or try to be ..... glad you could post your retraction ... I personally am pleased to see that.

    Welcome aboard gotbass. Don't feel that you need to refrain from joining the conversation due to one early judgement error. Heck, everybody makes mistakes from time to time. (Well, except me that is. I thought I had made a mistake once, but I was wrong. :D )

    New guy buys the ammo.

    Tag! You're it.

    Thank you Gotbass for being a man about it. Personal responsibility is what it's all about.

    I don't know what you said, but you seem to be a forum member worth keeping. Takes a lot of courage to admit you said something stupid or mean.

    He made a silly mistake that he probably doesnt really NEED to apologise for since it was innocent and without malice.

    Gotbass,

    That takes integrity. You're a stand-up kind of guy. ;)

    Yes, some boards aren't managed well. I can really understand being on your guard.

    Welcome to the High Road. I think you'll fit in well.

    Wes

    gotbass,
    Good form, I don't know what you said but it takes guts to publicly apologize like this. Stick around and post all you want. I have found a new home here at The High Road, I like the way they discuss things without the usual garbage that goes on with these internet boards. Welcome to The High Road.

    gotbass,

    Pretty much everyone says something they later wish they hadn't. I know I have, both on and off THR. At least you admit to it.

    Wow! You'd be the first!

    Just kidding.

    I don't know if I have enough history as a THR'er to welcom people, but welcome aboard anyways.

    I am glad you pulled your foot from mouth about Kentucky, knowing when to do so is the mark of an honorable man. Good to have you here and I hope you post often!

    No worries Gotbass.

    To paraphrase what I said to you on the other thread.
    Today you HAVE made some new friends.

    Welcome Aboard.
    By the way ..... new guy buys the ammo! :neener:



    Now I have a question for you?

    Regarding the meaning of "GotBass"...
    Does that imply that you have extra fish or low frequency musicial instruments. ;)

    Well, Gotbass thanks for the apology; even
    though I do not know what you are talking about?
    Here at The High Road, we learn to forgive and
    forget! Welcome Aboard! :D

    BluesBear - I have been known to do some bass fishing and other fish as well. The gotbass is a play on the Got Milk?
    Thanks to all for the positive comments. Mike
