On the vagaries of intoxicated posting from the bowels of my "shithole" "corpse" of a city.

I wanted to apologize to the admins, but mostly to Gooffyy and Oddman, for (shall I say) pooping in the most recent Detroit thread. I took offense to their comments and resorted to name-calling and general misanthropy, effectively cementing, I'm sure, a lot of folks' prejudices about my hometown in the process.
This isn't to excuse my behavior, but if you heard half of what we Detroiters hear on a daily basis about the city from under-informed know-it-alls, you might be a bit sensitive, too. Anyways, feel free to delete this if it's not meta-worthy, but I wasn't sure how else to assuage the community that (a) not all Detroiters are assholes like me and (b) I'm genuinely sorry for jumping on you guys. I think highly of The Mefi and don't want any noobs emulating my ill-advised acts in that thread.
That said, I do not regret using the words "shithole" and "bowels" in the same sentence, though I'll probably post a meta-metapology for that tomorrow. Heh.
