I am back, and I am sorry for the disturbance I caused on DU last week. [View all]

Thanks for the support. I was wrong. My apologies to DonV. After 17 years on DU, I did not really know the rules.

Hard to apologize when you are banned, but I am back - and DonV, I am sorry. And thanks to Skinner for re-instating me, even after my raving and ranting. Life is good now, back on DU!

Mac
