This is a first; I've never deleted a post before. It wasn't that good a post to begin with, as it turns out, but more to the point I ended up stepping hip-deep in trouble without realizing it.
I tend to satirize things, humor being my defense mechanism. I made reference to the past, turning something that happened at my local store into a story about the Master Manipulator (every store needs one). I thought it was funny, but unfortunately I failed to think it through.
What happened wasn't funny. Louis - the actual dude, not the internet running-joke on this site - was treated pretty bad. Frankly, I may not be aware of the extent, since my little bullshit joke touched off much more than I expected.
I don't believe the internet is an appropriate place to air dirty laundry. I try to be a stand-up guy, both online and in life; I would never deliberately shit on someone I like and respect the way I did today, much less behind the anonymity of the internet.
Louis is not really a master manipulator - I've never believed so. He's a dedicated hobbyist and a genuinely decent guy. I'm sorry a blog touched so heavily on real life: for that, I sincerely apologize.
Which I'll also do face-to-face, when I've had the opportunity. As it is now, I'm at home painting Eldar and was enjoying a day off, but this is going to bother me until I can make it right.
