Apology for offence caused by "Cheat = weight gain.." thread

I am very shocked that the thread I put up earlier has caused offence, and appalled that those who read it could somehow not understand where I, and others, were coming from.:confused: :(

That said, I do, most sincerely, and unreservedly, apologise for any offence caused.

It was an honest and frank discussion about things and I do feel that whoever gave me the red rep mark must have been terribly offended, and I am truly sorry for that. I do think it would have been better to actually write me a message to tell me how you were feeling as I am always open to constructive criticism and healthy debate, which, I thought was ok.

I have not read the thread since my last post on it, so I have no idea what else was added (that was at about 5.30pm I think, and it is now almost 11pm).

If anyone were to track through the posts I have made since joining this site they will get a feel for the kind of person I am, and how I am towards those with a genuine struggle.

I have neither been asked nor prompted to make this apology, I have done so because I am genuinely sorry that people clearly misunderstand where I was coming from and took offence.:(

I shall, in future, keep my thoughts to myself.

Once again, my apologies if you took offence, and thank you to those who did send me private messages of agreement.

It will be a sad day indeed if this happens. I for one don't want a sugar-coated forum and I don't think for one minute you meant to cause offence FF&F.

It's true to say there is likely to be vulnerable members on a support site but surely we're all adults on here and can simply agree to disagree on certain issues.

I'd certainly hate to think that members feel that they're walking on eggshells and can't express an opinion. It won't be much of a forum if all that's discussed is what flavour soup is the best!
