53 posts in 4 days? [Eek!]

...I'm new so its not up to me to accept or deny the apology since I don't really fit in..

For what it's worth - try calming down, reading the thread before posting and ask yourself "am I contributing or responding politely?" before posting.

Spelling is easy if you don't type super fast (is that the issue? you seem to post a lot, which means quickly skimming threads and banging out whatever comes to mind).

I'm sure someone will pick you up for "legiable" "apologize", "ecspcially" and the poor punctuation. I'm not losing sleep over it.

Fix the thread title before they burn you at the stake.

Fix the spelling mistakes too...before you are exiled.

If you want them to take you seriously then edit now.

Hey, man - if a cat's mistakes are limited to spelling, I say we relax a bit. It's all groovy. We can still dig his scene.

I think a big group hug is in order.

Shameless plug. (Please forgive me.)

Good morning, orion. (I do realize it is afternoon in the UK. Where I live, it is not quite 8:30 a.m.)
It is very nice to see you back at GC behaving so well, being cooperative and all. That is all it really takes to be respected in this "place".

jordanv's advice to you in this thread has been excellent. (Since you and he do not capitalize {preferred spelling in US} your online names neither should I).

I would add one item to his suggestions. Please choose and use one of the emoticons when you are using humor, being sarcastic, or giving someone a gentle ribbing. It makes things soooo much clearer and avoids many upsets.

Keep up the good work on your improved typing, spelling, punctuation. Folks here can be pretty flexible and accommodating, so long as they're treated with respect. [Wink]

Edit: Speaking for myself only, I accept and appreciate your apology. Most appropriate! [Razz]

--------------------
I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Well done Orion, the apology was well put together and as long as you stay "good" I'm sure we'll accept you.

'ey up and welcome to GC then, from the token Yorkshireman (even if he is residing in your home town at the moment [Smile] )

Ha ha ha,

Welcome Orion, your apology shows that you do have what it takes after all. It takes a bigger man to apologise than to mouth off... Congratulations on having the guts for that.

Hopefully we can all now get along nicely...

I am a huge Chris Morris fan, but I was a little disappointed with Nathan Barley. I think that it might take me a few episodes to 'get' it. I laughed for ages at one of the Sugarape idiots' tiny hat though. [Big Grin]

I think orion should check out a nice online rpg or a nice book... Reminds me of me when I had absolutely nothing better to do but scour the forums recent posts every 10 minutes [Razz] .

But, [thumbsup] on the apology. Well done.

I'm curious... About what, you ask? EVERYTHING!
