We can all say the wrong thing or rub people up the wrong way sometimes by accident sometimes intentionally but we're all big boys and get over it.
Even pub debates sometimes deteriorate into arguments but who cares you cant please all the folk all of the time.
I've not followed the thread.
I've got into a couple of spats on a totally unrelated forum. People say things they'd never say face to face. I found myself checking several times per day to see how I was faring in what was, looking back, a trivial argument. I learned from that & now avoid getting dragged down into a futile vortex of vitriol.
These things really shouldn't matter, but I can understand how it can consume someone.
