Sir, I respectfully suggest that you are out of line.
While I agree that most of us do, from time to time,
act like children, that does not give us the right to
verbally brutalize one of our youth brethren. The
existence of any emoticon, such as a "smiley face",
does not remove the sting of such a harsh rebuke.
Mr. Ward, speaking only for myself, welcome to the
List. As you can see, there are a wide variety of
attitudes and opinions out here. Personally, I fear
you may grow bored with the content of the list, as we
tend to wax philosophical and be long-winded. I am
such an offender. Bu, the decision to stay or go
should stay with you. I hope you, as I have, find
things of value from this rolling disaster.
Yours in Scouting,
SM Troop 857
