What FYM moment would you like to take back?

OK...self reflection here....

I would take back a comment I made in war about two years ago....about Chile. I was wrong....and after doing more research on the topic...I regret my position.

NEXT?

What did you say? Or is it better left buried?

I'd take back the time I was rude to diamond a long time ago about what constitutes cloning. Not because I was factually incorrect, but because I really believe it's not only what you say, but how you say it and how you present yourself to other people that matters in the end. I didn't need to be condescending in that regard, and I was.

I made an argument, that I really regret....more out of ingnorance....and I can only imagine how it may have hurt the other poster's feelings.

Hmmm....I regret a comment I made the other day in the intelligent design thread because although it wasn't my intention it ended up sounding horribly elitist.

I'm not sure of any one blow-up, but there are dozens I'd like to go back and refine, retone or trim down. I should never keep posting when the stress of the day (and life) gets me on overload or I get caught up with the posturing in a thread.

I will say that there are many draft posts that thankfully never see the light of the internet. Running things through spell check on Word gives me yet another chance to think it through.

I regret a few times I let things get too personal.

LOL.

I apologize if I came off strongly to anyone here at any time, too. I know there's been times when I've read back what I've written and wow, did it sound snippy or sarcastic or rude or whatever...at least, it did to me, and I don't know if it did to anyone else. So if I've come across like that to anyone here, I'm sorry . I'm just very strong in expressing my views, and sometimes it comes off in a way I don't intend, so...yeah.

Good idea for a thread, Dread .

Angela

My daughter just now on seeing Moonlit_angel's sig: "Look, lady running!"

I have now forgotten what I was going to say

great thread

I try my best to be nice, but I take back any time that I wasn't. I take back threads of mine that degenerated into crap

Honestly most times in here I regret things that I want to say but I don't. I don't say them though for a good reason because I can predict what will happen. I just can't take the stress I guess.

Regrets?
I've made a few.

Seriously - I regret anytime I get caught up in a subject and may have offended someone.
