I was enjoying Fight Club until it suddenly vanished for some reason.  Turns out I may be the reason.

I claimed to be someone I'm not, which I thought was funny but, not surprisingly for me, I misjudged.

I thought Fight Club was brilliant and I  enjoyed the over-the-top nature of the posts.  I was looking forward to whatever was to come.

I am sorry for any trouble I caused, and for any angst as well.

Fight club was an April Fools day thing.

It was designed to be open for just a few hours then vanish into the either.

I figured but I know I've caused angst for at least 1 member, so I thought I should apologize to anyone else.

You realize that we are violating the number one rule of Fight Club by talking about Fight Club.

I sent this message to Timothy this morning, thinking he was the guy that I went after. So I also violated the rule about not talking about Fight Club.

Here's my message to him.... I think I totally misread the concept of the Fight Club. I thought we were supposed to pick somebody, give them a run through the mud and then wait for them to respond, so that we could have some good old-fashioned mudslinging, similar to a celebrity roast. But it didn't turn out that way. Most people were not into it at all and there has been much hand-wringing and soul-searching amongst the people who created that thread.

I thought you would Come Out Swinging and we'd have a proper dust-up. But I see that's not your style, so I won't try anything like that in the future. I considered a dozen other people but I couldn't remember names, so when yours came to mind, I pounced.

You came out of it looking better than me, so it was an easy win. Congratulations. I'm sure there's many more points where we agree than where we disagree, but that didn't seem like the sort of thing to bring up in Fight Club.
......
Then it turns out that he's not Willi, and that he was just messing with my mind. Similar to what happened in the Fight Club movie actually.

Timothy, your apology is appreciated and noted, but please don't worry about the thread or anything you said. In fact, I want to comment that your self awareness of maybe having pushed a boundary is admirable and valued here at Permies.

Thanks James.  It also gave me an opportunity to call Dale a 'member' and get away with it...
