Earlier you were "extremely ashamed" and now you're "extremely dismayed". It's obvious, through your own admission, that your emotions are running away with you on this non-issue.
I don't think you drink as much as you should. That may be because you seem to be the kind of person who would flat **** up a good time and thus no one will drink with you. That's understandable unless you run with a BDSM crowd.
Perhaps you should consider Fukitol. Or you rather than blame damn near everyone in the thread for participating in group think, you might want to consider that it isn't everyone else. Maybe it's you.
So, in summation, it seems that the high level of immaturity and emotional argmentation contained in the posts of those who support this disobedient child is precisely what you would expect from an attempt to defend petulant behavior like this. It is clear that those poster who demonstrate common sense and maturity see clearly the the right thing for this disobedient child to do is apologize.
“And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”

Guy is just @#$@$ing with folks.
I've moved on to a better forum (scienceforums.net). Facts matter, and I don't have the time or energy for putting up with the pretense that they don't. PM me if you'd like me to get in touch with you when I'm done developing my own forum system, likely towards the end of 2013.
