Some of you may have been offended by my recent posts, I wish to apologise to the regular members that were upset by anything I said during my posts, It most certainly will not happen again . I along with John have removed my posts on that thread.

Hi Pete;

I don't think that you need to apologize although it's never a bad idea.

Everyone is entitled to voice their views and it is quite hard to write it well and concisely. Even the government get some laws worded incorrectly. So we should be a bit more tolerant of others, the vast majority of people are good people even though their values might differ a bit to mine or yours.

Disagreement and discussion are normally good things as it educates us and often widens our views, but it has to be done in a polite and listening way, otherwise no one gains anything other than ill feeling.

This highlights some of the difficulties those of us without speech face on a daily basis. The written word does not allow for tone of voice or facial or body gestures. This often leads to misunderstandings! Enough said!!

I am pretty good with words, but I am always typing or writing stuff that doesn't convey the right message! You lose the spontaneity of speech, with all the inflections you put into normal talk! You are quite right, Miranda, Isn't it just so good that you can get on this forum and other people really understand your problems. I really don't know how I would manage without all you guys and gals! xx

I was wondering where your post went Pete. There i was thinking, that there must be a black hole swallowing the funny one. I couldn't personally see anything offensive about it. Where is the good British humour when you need it? And it is badly needed here on this forum.
I certain am confused about the need for an apology. xx
Best wishes

I missed the whole thing, but Pete you have been such a support to me in the short time I have been on the forum that I can't imagine anything that bad!! Having no speech makes for difficult times and typing it out as willsandco said loses such a lot of meaning - clearly you didn't suffer this for whatever you said this time!! Sense of humour always required without it we are done for! Hope today is a good one for you and everyone looking in at the moment. If today is good and we have no idea what tomorrow will be like, then let's go for today :)

Pete. There was no apology needed. I think you probably said what many of us thought and I have always valued your posts. You said just the right things to me a few weeks ago when I was having a bad time and a "rant". You have a lot of "followers" and support.

I did not agree with all that you said but the world might be a bit boring if everyone said yes.

Huggs, Terry

I agree with all that Pete said, and agree with Terry, the world would be boring if we all said yes...

Hey Pete,
'did you ever know you're my hero'.....yes sing it like Bette Midler.......I hold you in such high esteem and I've never met you face to face, but your love and support and wise words helped me through such tough times, thank you
and to all of you ...some people find it easy to say sorry and others find it very hard to say sorry....read between the lines.
Those that mind don't matter and those that matter don't mind.........very true saying.
with love to all

Pete,
You are a real gentleman. Sometimes things need to be said. I think when things are said in a spirit of caring - it's good. Like what was said earlier, "you're a class act" A man who has the humility to admit when he is wrong is a great man.
