    Dear Members

    I am ashamed for insulting various members.
    Behaved childish and irresponsible.

    Tried to explain the real sense of the words to Seagypsy, but that does not eliminate the damage.
    The truth is that the day before i was very sick and almost did not realize what I wrote.

    I did not know do something witchy means a terrible thing, thought it was a simple comment from a lunatic, and did not know that everybody knew that phrase.

    Do not know how to undo the damage
    I feel unworthy to belong to this forum

    Send everyone a hand-written apology and include a minimum of 100 per letter.
    Other than that, don't be a prat in future and stop being a drama queen.
    It's the internet for crying out loud.
    Learn your lesson and move on.

    As Dywyddyr stated, no need for drama. Simply stop doing what has earned you ill favor and stop defending what was done and making excuses. If you didn't know about the quote, fine. Change your presentation. But you didn't say you weren't aware of it from the beginning. You actually made it clear that you knew EXACTLY what Charles Manson said and only when I pointed out to you that you have used what you considered the exact quote as well, did you realize that you really can't claim ignorance to it.

    I cannot speak for the rest of the members, but I am willing to let it go so long as the lesson is truly learned. If you do not want to be associated with a serial killer, cease using his famous last words before a historic murder as your way of signing your posts. And refrain from insulting members with inappropriate nicknames.

    No one here is asking for a blood offering. Everyone has a bad day from time to time. But we acknowledge our mistakes and move on, making genuine effort to not repeat the same mistakes again. That is called learning and learning is always welcome on this forum.

    I look forward to seeing a more refined style of posting from you in the future.
    Speaking badly about people after they are gone and jumping on the bash the band wagon must do very well for a low self-esteem.

    This is what happens when we let people go off and "start their own country". They forget how to speak English.
    Strangely none of the online definitions quite capture it.
    And if I said "prat is equivalent to wally" I suppose you'd tell me that doesn't help either...
    It's a form of idiot, but generally not quite as harshly meant.

    I would compare prat to brat... brat is probably a mispronounced Americanized version of prat, but I could be wrong.

    If I'm not mistaken, American English is actually more representative of traditional English than what the British speak. I believe English in the UK is the one that has changed in regards to accents at least.

    Keep in mind, that could be something I made up just as much as it could be something that is actually true.

    As to the original topic, I think a PM to the person you think you have offended is just as effective and more meaningful.

    long ago
    there was a pbs series called "the story of english" wherein it was claimed that the outer islands of the carolinas were where the english of the first settlers was still spoken with the same accents

    perhaps, Flick, that is where you got that idea?

    I couldn't say. There are things in my head whose origins I cannot explain. Some of them are things I read, others came from a night with NyQuil.
