I am not whining and I am tired of your yelling, bullying BS.
Stop it!

I apologize for calling you an immoral curr. At the time I
thought you were acting like one in your comments to me but that
is no excuse. So I apologize.

Fortunately, I make my own decisions. I do apologize for where
I dehumanized you by assuming that just because you were, imho,
utterly unreasonable in your responses and attitudes toward me,
that it was alright to simply stop reading you for a while.
