Very sorry to anyone it may have offended... Can't Post

I didn't mean "Fairy-like" in that way. NOT AT ALL. I only meant that it was light and airy and flighty like a fairy might be. Again so sorry if anyone was hurt. I realize that this might need to go in reply to my previous post but I wanted to make sure you all saw it. Again my apologies. Unsure

Thanks, RangerLady.. [In reply to] Can't Post

"light and airy and flighty like a fairy might be" was just the sort of description I was looking for to understand what you were saying.

I just couldn't figure out what attributes those little winged fairies possessed that could be applied to the fall but your explanation helps me understand what you were getting at.

Don't be embarrassed. I just need to find the wave length you were on and join you there. :-)

No problem [In reply to] Can't Post

I knew what you were talking about. For future reference, you can describe the scene as puppet-like. Cool

Nothing to worry about. [In reply to] Can't Post

It was just a simple misunderstanding and it's all cleared up now. Smile

No Misunderstanding [In reply to] Can't Post

I was not offended because I read it perfectly as it was meant to be understood. I know the scene well and always look upon it with humor and without really any complaint, so it was easy to take your description at face value without a second thought.

Those who might fear meanings of words and intent unfortunately pass that on to others, teaching reason for offense where none might otherwise have been considered. Admins, moderators and such, like police, must have those things in mind because it's their job to be somewhat cynical in order to protect their community from the nefarious, so I would give them a pass on such thoughts. I understand it well. But I would not raise the objection publicly otherwise because it can, obviously, cause unnecessary embarrassment to someone who never intended offense. I'm really sorry you had to apologize.
