Man the way this has processed and turned out is gratifying to see! It shows the that the power of people talking and working together to understand each other can be stronger than the conflicts & misunderstanding we're bound to have becuz we're all human & we're all different.
It also gives me hope. I've largely avoided chat rooms for a while tho I used to go quite a bit, on other sites, a while back. It was in big part becuz of conflicts in the chat rooms. Discussion boards are easier to control and safer in many ways. So I've been there more. Will probably continue to be. But maybe I'll try some chat too.
Keith, I'm glad you and this other person have made your peace and are becoming good friends! That's good for both of you, and all of us.
Again I gotta say you show your maturity (and so does your friend) in venting your anger and resolving it so quickly the way you did. Very healthy too, and great to see.
Blessed are the peacemakers...
