To all posters here at BTW and to our moderator, I apologize for my actions the past few days.
I was caught up in a ridiculous argument and got carried away to the detriment of the board and myself.
55 pages of nonsense.
I proved my point in my argument.
I should have only made my point once.

I agree with the moderator in that it was "enough".
Posters shouldn't carry grudges from board to board.
I also agree with the moderator in that posters shouldn't make posts against others based on "suppossed bashing of other posters which they like, most of which didn't even occur here".
I agree whole heartily with that statement.

I believe in the truth.
I have never lied here.
I have never threatened anyone.
I have only posted as "Burton" here and I have rarely if ever indulged in vulgar and obscene name calling.
But I still sunk to a level the last few days that has embarrassed myself and for the first time ever, resulted in my being banned from BTW.

I want to thanks all the posters who sent me pm's.
Good to see that fairness, civility and common sense prevail here for most.
I need to better follow that example and I will.

Once again I'm sorry for the whole ridiculous mess.

Good racing!!!!!!!!!

Burton

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.

Sometimes once its out of your system it can be gone forever.
I don't think you needed to apologize because its a message board and its whatever. But thank you and it was a very classy thing to do.

It is over on my end.
I won't speak for others.
That's not my style.

My apology was indeed needed, not just for the posters here and the moderator, but for myself as well.
I couldn't come back here after that mess and begin posting again without saying I'm sorry to the members for my actions.

Burton, apology accepted by me, for sure. I never lose focus on what you have contributed to the message boards. Back in the day, when these forums were not real popular, you came on here and jump-started the forum with your popular,honest and frank style. When you started posting, others started coming here just to see what you were discussing!! We can never lose sight of that.
