All right here it goes.
I hate to stop all the fun here, but after reading Bike Snobs new post and all the wonderful comments there [and here]I figured I better say something positive and apologize.
I am crawling back to say that I am sorry for calling BSNYC a bad name and removing the BSNYC link.
Once I got truly informed about the whole situation only to see what a jerk I was [still am in many eyes…all well].
I was mis-informed early this morning with an email telling me that BSNYC posted the fake craigslist ad. I flew off the handle and should have investigated the situation more thoroughly.
Thanks to all the people that got in touch on and off line to get me to look at this in a variety of ways [including the people who called me a Douche and a Jerk]. It took a lot of peoples input to get it through my thick head and the a couple of reads through the BSNYC post.
I could go on about trying to defend myself or explain how I was mis-informed or thought that the BSNYC Tweet led to all this or my defense of riding a folding bike [while traveling] or using a cable lock, but that would just make me look like even more of a jerk.
To put it all in BSNYC’s words on his post to me:
I only hope the damage wrought by this whole regrettable situation is not irrevocable, and it has certainly sent me fishing within myself for even the smallest mackerel of decency
The BSNYC link will now be restored to it’s glory in the “B” section of the antbike blog.
OK, eveyone back to work.
