I say this with the utmost respect: please google it. I'd rather not derail this thread further into that direction. It has already been covered extensively by other sources and discussed in the thread I linked.

I felt that this was an appropriate place to post an apology since this is "where I am going" - to a place of recognizing my own wrongs - without bumping a topic that didn't need to be bumped, but if my post is going to derail this thread Into a discussion about that event then please delete my post. I refuse to be part of another problem.
Saria, please pardon my ill-timed rapid-fire response. I have taken the time to visit that thread and read more about that topic and I now realize the level of scrutiny it endured, but I won't say more on the subject so I don't come across as trying to continue this line of discussion.

Thank you The Troglodyte, and please don't worry, I'm the one who brought it up in the first place, I just don't want to give it more attention beyond my apology. I'd welcome any private messages from you (and anyone else) on the subject, since me posting such a message, referencing said event, and then requesting that the event itself not being discussed in the thread where I posted the message is problematic. Unfortunately, to give context on how I want to move forward, I felt it necessary to reflect on the past momentarily within this thread.

Thanks for your amicable response and the pm request as well, which I certainly will do, once I've had ample time to review the subject matter more thoroughly and formulate a more well-informed opinion.

I'm guessing you're in China for business? How'd you get roped into that assignment?

Wow, having never been out of my own country, I can't even imagine what that must be like!
