Thanks for deleting my irritable response to a question about how to succeed at writing. I guess it punched a button of mine.

That's great and all, but you could just send an e-mail or memail to the mods.

With a MetaTalk we're going to need a link to the thread, and a copy of the comment that got deleted so that we can judge you.

Your welcome! See what I did there?

For future reference, your apology would have been more appropriate in the form of an email to the mods. A post to discuss it is unnecessary.

Welcome to MeTa. For your future reference, you will probably want to include a link to the thread in question, as it generally makes the locals less grumpy. If you don't feel it's appropriate to link to the thread, seriously consider whether a post to MeTa is necessary or if employing the handy-dandy contact form (Link at the bottom of every page!) might be a better choice.

So many people won't.

For me, this is a tragedy.

Ah, so you think your guilt has been assuaged.
Now, now, not so fast.
I have to agree with mr graventy; we need all the facts about your misdeed. And then we can palaver at length about the merits of your apology, weigh your soul, and after much consideration, maybe, we will forgive you.

So, about those Minecraft recipes....

That's just you're opinion.

I'm not ready to forgive you.

Your penance is to say 5 Our Haugheys, 5 Hail Quonsars, and an Act of Cortrition. Bless you, and may forgiveness be upon you, my son.

No problem, fivesavagepalms. Thanks for being a good sport about it. That said, as folks have mentioned a couple times, this probably isn't anything that needs a public discussion so in the future if you want to drop us mods a note you can just hit up the contact form linked in the bottom right of every page and write to us directly.

Not really anything else to say here, so I'm closing this up. Happy weekend, everybody.
