I posted into a debate thread of which I was not a participant.
It was not done with any deliberate or considered lack of respect to this forum, or it members, or the debates participants in particular.
It has been pointed out to me how arrogant the action appears, particularly as my subsequent explanation showed no remorse whatsoever.
I've had time to reconsider the act and review its consequences.
I offer no excuses, but ask only that you accept that it was momentary stupidity and not my rampant arrogance that mislead me into feeling it was a good idea at the time.
I unreservedly apologise for the lack of etiquette.
