    I am sorry and embarrassed. But most of all, I am deeply sorry.

    Words cannot express how truly sorry I am for the anxiety, frustration and inconvenience that I caused. This is especially saddening because I brought the promise of bringing humanity back web browsing and making the experience of web browsing happier and easier for everyone. I know I failed to deliver on this promise yesterday.

    I am committed to you, Anonymous Coward, and I am taking immediate corrective steps to regain your confidence in me. I have begun putting a comprehensive plan in place to provide better and more timely information to you, more tools and resources for handling coding difficulties in the future.

    I am confident, as a result of these actions, that I will emerge as a more reliable and even more responsive scripter than ever before.

    You deserved better—a lot better—from me yesterday. Nothing is more important than regaining your trust and I hope you will give us the opportunity to welcome you again soon and provide you the positive experience you have come to expect from me.

    Yeah, that came off too gruff. I apologize for my inability to properly sandwich that criticism. That script is pretty neat, especially in its use of sed. I was just trying to express concern of those issues in light of the fact that you suggested random people put it on random machines of unknown configuration in a set-and-forget situation as a privileged user. I probably don't have to tell you that bad things can result from undefined behavior in the run in the "right" situation as root. In my attempt to bring those issues to your attention while dealing with a time crunch that happened to fall on my lap while I was reading the script over, I did not take your feelings into account. And for that, I again apologize.

        Don't be so coy. We all know that is just a fake affect for something more diabolical. Otherwise, y'all would apologize because your beer sucks [].
