We could have moved on 3 posts ago had you simply said 'oops, yeah, I
misspoke, here's what I meant', instead of trying to justify it somehow.

I even included a winkie in my first comment pointing out you probably
mis-spoke - which, when combined with the rest of the content of my
posts, shows conclusively that I did indeed 'get your point'.

And now you compound the problem by making a grand-standing apology
obviously meant tongue-in-cheek, in that you don't really mean it, but
instead are trying to deflect blame for this ridiculous side-thread back
on me.
