Last night, I had a strong reaction to this diary which I felt was largely wrong and full of inaccuracies. It was totally not in accordance with other opinion diaries and trusted sources.
This was the diary. I did not like his "stop deluding yourselves" either.
Nevertheless, my original response diary was not that well-written and thought out. I should have known better than to just write a diary "lashing out". I realize I should have really thought it out to write a diary that expressed my opinions and had well-written critical rebuttals and links that connected all the dots.
I apologize for the discord I caused some kossacks (and the diarist with whom I strongly disagreed with). I apologize for hide-rating the diary as well. I went too far. I will remove it immediately if my ratings were restored, which I asked the admin to do. I apologized and owned up to my mistake in my email to admin too. Lastly, I took responsibility to remove my original poorly written diary too.
I will write a much better rebuttal diary in the days to come. I hope you forgive me for my mistake.
