I have stopped reading many (hundreds pehaps) threads (for all kinds of reasons). I have never felt the need to inform anyone of my action. Have I, all this time, been committing some faux pax?
People sometimes post their au revoirs when a thread reaches this stage

and the arguing gets repetitive and it becomes obvious no one is going to change their stance. You have to work much harder to commit a really good faux pas.

I want to apologize for this comment. It was rude and offensive. I cannot imagine the embarrassment this person has gone through having his picture posted all over the internet. Now, I'm new here and maybe this is some photoshop picture and not a real person.

Regardless, my comment was inappropriate.

Thanks. It's easy to get carried away with joking around. I've done the same thing myself and later regreted it.
