Node, Twitter, and Apologies

23 January 2013

Soooo there's this thing: http://harthur.wordpress.com/2013/01/24/771/

First of all, unequivocally, I said it before, and I'll say it again: I'm sorry, and feel terrible that I made someone feel terrible. @harthur, I felt bad yesterday, and I'm feeling bad again. Not that it helps you that I feel bad. But I don't like making other people feel bad. I am sorry.

tl;dr

TL;DR: I am sorry. I feel terrible that I made someone else feel terrible. I feel even worse because I didn't mean to say that they were terrible, but accidentally did.

the why

Sooooooo I wrote up why I said what it was that I said, because what I was trying to say was totally unrelated to replace. I was trying to explain why I don't like Node, and it basically came out wrong. But, explaining what I said had the affect of feeling like I was trying not to apologize. So, I'll just cut to the chase and say this, cut straight from the chat log:

SK: i dont want people to think i'm saying "i got caught being an asshole so i'm saying sorry"
SK: i want to say "I was accidentally being an asshole so i'm sorry"

So, I'll just leave it at that. Twitter makes it so hard not to accidentally be an asshole.
