That was never my intention and I WAS NOT insinuating that Vince, or anyone else, in any way endorsed this particular scammer. He was unaware of this persons identity at first, as was everyone else.
Vince, you have my humblest apology! If that post insulted or made anyone else feel bad, I apologize to you, too! Again, that was not my intent.
My whole purpose was to remind people to be careful about adding people they don't know to their list. Is adding people you don't know to your list a crime? Not at all and it probably won't matter at all... but you just never know. I have worked very hard to develop my reputation and I wouldn't want to jeopardize it by making a small mistake.
I guess I should have taken the positive approach and said that you should never judge someone. I believe in giving respect FIRST... until they show me different.
By taking the negative approach, I inadvertently indicted innocent people who just gave someone the benefit of the doubt. I was wrong and, again, I apologize!
BTW, I can honestly say that I have never received a more respectful, polite PM from someone who was angry with me! Vince obviously knows how to deal with people. Thanks, Vince!
