Sorry I'm having trouble here:
You post the above publicly but post the following privately:
As far as the defending my position, I was referring to the original long Pro/Con Torchy post...I was "defending my position" as the original and natural competition to Torchy.
All those torches are putting guys like me outta work!
As far as the "pun that was definitely intended"...I was reffering to the name Allay...which of course is just allay...which of course means "to pacify".
Honestly, Alison... it was a oversight on my part not to realise that you might think I was poking fun at you. Nothing about that post was intended to have ANYTHING to do with you.
Alison, I apologize with all my heart for not thinking a stupid joke through. I hope everyone here who has gotten to know me, realizes that I wouldn't even dare make a personal attack in that manner. I've erased most of posts that eluded to the joke that wasn't even that funny to begin with.
