What one person sees as a joke another person could see differently. We all have sensitive spots. I usually see apologies as more about courtesy and less about commitment.

Hm... apology to me is admitting of a wrongdoing, accepting the responsibility and making reparations.

That is why I only apologize if I actually did something wrong. Jonas misreading my post and instead of trying to debate it out just blocked me... well, I see no action of mine that was wrong. I even used a fairly mild language in the post he was reacting to.

If an apology is just words, then it has no meaning. I am aware that the current society thinks lightly of such things, but I do not.

I respect your opinion on the matter of apologies. I work customer service and it is a habit I have developed to reduce work stress.

I work as an IT/software support guy [ though it looks like I'm going back to programming soon ]. Occasionally I talk to the customer. I tend to be polite, nice and all tied up with a pretty pink bow. I even help the customers with things outside of our scope if they ask me to, as long as it's not something too big. That doesn't mean that I don't realize that they misuse my service. I do it because: less hassle.

And... buy something squishy you can throw against the wall without breaking anything. Works like a charm to reduce stress. Or something you can kick around without causing damage.

I've worked customer service too. I've seen so many empty apologizing in my life I don't personally care for it on the receiving end as more than a courtesy and try to rarely apologize myself. I'm probably not sorry, and if I am I may commit to doing something about it, but i'm not going to be courtly about it. At the most i'll acknowledge a mistake.

That seems quite clear and Vadderung should know.

Yeah, putting two statements next to each other and leaving the listener to assume a possibly misleading degree of connection is not a confirmation.
Mildly OCD. Please do not troll.

kittensgame, Sandcastle Builder, Homestuck, Welcome to Night Vale, Civ III, lots of print genre SF, and old-school SATT gaming if I had the time.  Also Pandemic Legacy is the best game ever.

How else can you interpret his statements without stretching them beyond recognition?
