COW slaughtering APOLOGY

Hi everyone,

I would like to sincerely apologise for my stubborn and slightly arrogance towards some members who I groan at and taking a stance whilst I have been told its ILLEGAL to slaughter in a halal/ kosher way in Switzerland and thank you for enlighting me on the issue. We have drop the idea of slaughtering and chose to abide by the rules and regulations of the host country.

Anyway I am sorry if I offended anyone and I do hope you all find it in your heart to forgive me.

Sincerely,
Nia

Not convinced either. Yesterday she didnt care and today its all ok and she is sorry? Most probably to make us shut up and get brownie points.

Re: COW slaughtering APOLOGY

This was an obvious Troll immediately apparent from the original posting.
Surprised that so many were sucked in.
Same as the current Dog Meat effort.

I think some one talked to her, and made her realise one shouldn't sound like an outlaw before they get their papers approved. There's no gaurantee Bessie isn't going to bleed out in a garage somewhere near Genf. I appreciate it when a memeber see's an error in their ways based on an opposing argument.

But it's not what happened here. She was gung ho kill em'all, and a day goes by and "sorry to offend". Atleast she smartened up.

It sounds more the reading of a legal statement rather then a change of heart.

Yesterday wanted to apologise but unfortunately the thread was closed before I had the opportunity to do so. I received over 10 red blobs with some nasty comments, but that didn't deter me from saying sorry as I PM them 1 by 1 apologising as I realised it was wrong legally.

By the time I reached to the 5th or 6 th person I got a notification stating I have to wait 1440 min in order to send another PM( those members can speak up if am lying)

Hence my public apology. It ok if you and Amaraya are not convinced I can tell you this my conscious is clear.

Thank you to those who accepted my apology and giving me the green blobs.

Re: COW slaughtering APOLOGY

You got what you deserved in terms of groans and rep, yet the groans you gave are still there. I might be more convinced this is genuine if they disappeared.
EDIT: Which seems fair... unless of course you are the ridiculous figure of Tapioca who's favorite pastimes is groaning my posts... really stalk someone who cares. As an aside I wonder what troll tastes like, a slice of Tapiro anyone?

If you feel your previous thread and your attitude on it was anything less than that of an idiot please feel free to feel insulted (that was the insult referred to folks).
