To say and do what he did, obviously Rewdius was hurting and rather than reach out to him with sympathy and compassion, I was publicly mean to him. This was wrong on every conceivable level. There is no rationale or the slightest justification. I am ashamed and embarrassed.
Rewdius: If you're reading this, from my heart, I apologize to you.
Thank you BadFred for reminding me that we all have feelings.
