I was curious so I went looking...

About 75 people logged in the past week. 1/3rd of them may be spambots with groups of them signed up the same day and all with 0-2 posts...

Still, more people checking in than I was expecting.

You're right.
Donald, I'm sorry you're such an ass sometimes.

"Sometimes."
Retroscree, you're much more consistent in that regard.

Donald, no need to apologize. In fact, I think most people owe you an apology.
From the Online Etymology Dictionary:

apology (n.)
15c., "defense, justification," from Late Latin apologia, from Greek apologia "a speech in defense," from apologeisthai "to speak in one's defense," from apologos "an account, story," from apo- "from, off" (see apo-) + logos "speech" (see lecture (n.)).

The original English sense of "self-justification" yielded a meaning "frank expression of regret for wrong done," first recorded 1590s, but this was not the main sense until 18c. The old sense tends to emerge in Latin form apologia (first attested in English 1784), especially since J.H. Newman's "Apologia pro Vita Sua" (1864).


The latter definition is taken as the standard one today. But don't you think the former is apropos to this thread? A poster may well owe us an explanation.

Does it mean that he's an ass sometimes or that I'm sorry only sometimes?

The mind reels at the number of possible combinations here.

"A poster may well owe us an explanation."

My grandma always used to say, when all you have is lemons, make lemonade.

"When life gives you lemons, make lemonade" is a proverbial phrase used to encourage optimism and a can-do attitude in the face of adversity or misfortune. "Lemons" in this expression is used in the informal sense of the word, to indicate an unfortunate or inadequate situation, a meaning which probably stems from the sour and acidic taste of unsweetened lemon. "Lemonade" on the other hand, is a sweetened form of this same acerbic fruit, and so in the context of this expression, conveys the potential for pleasure and opportunity in seemingly bad situations.

You never know, perhaps when you misspell a word this could be an opportunity for a new word, a new idea, a new concept?
