An Open Apology to Vegas Vince

by Chris W. Sutton 30 replies
I received a PM from Vegas Vince letting me know that I had insulted him via a recent post I made about a scammer. I indicted him via guilt by association.

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!

    Hey Davebo,

    No, I think Vince had the right to be angry. This whole thing was my fault and I implicated him without thinking.

    Again, I just wish everyone would respond with the graciousness that Vince showed when he sent me the PM.

    Honestly, I haven't always agreed with the tone of some of the things Vince has posted on the WF but I now know, without a doubt, that Vince is a stand up kind of guy! If we had more people with Vince's way of handling things, the WF would be a far better place!

      Surely you don't need to apologize Chris.

        Not true, Moffatt! But I was the dude screwin' Paris Hilton in that xxx night vision video. Eat your heart out!

        And I'm the guy who will soon dump a bottle of Wesson Veggie Oil all over your surf board...and wont that be quite a sight...... watchin' you slippin' and slidin' during the next high tide. Hope you can swim bro. I hate you!

        Anyway......no apologies needed.

        Chris Suttun is a class act...I'm not..

        But thanks anyway. Appreciated.....and now we must move on to more important issues...like.....

        I am more bitter over the fact that once again......just when I'm about to jump ship...and head over to meet some "hot female Warrior"----"she" either turns out to be a "he".....or is a member of The FBI's top ten list.

        UGGGGGG!

        Italian Ali.......why baby? Why!!!! Why did ya do it?????

        All those plans we had....you told me you'se loved me....and wanted to have my children...and you'se lied to Vince. I feel really used...and discarded.

        You told me we would be together forever once my check cleared. It did. And we aint.

        You told me you'se would cook me that good Italian linguini.....for the rest of our lives. So why am I eating burnt toast tonight?

        I am bitter.

            Dana...seein' that you'se and me are basically neighbors and only live a few minutes away...and considering the fact this next Hurricane might be our last moment on earth...

            I was wondering if you'se would like to come hunker down with Vinnie for the next couple days...and we can ride out the storm together?

            We can discuss IM marketing over a bottle of aged Ripple....and go out in a blaze of glory and a flood of water.

                P.S. I only mentioned the strippers because ol Vegas Vince never thought I would.

                  Sutton insults me on a regular basis and do I ever get a public apology? No!

                  Obviously it's time to scribe an angry PM.

                  BTW Chris, I've always found that when people send me a bottle of Jamesons I enter a state of total forgiveness ;-)

                    Hey Kevin there's a question that's been bugging me for some time now and strangely enough you seem to be the perfect guy to answer it.

                    Anyway here's my question...

                    Do they have hamster strippers?

                    Kindest regards,

                      Yes they do. But I believe that people who strip harmless hamsters should be left in a very small cage with a horny orangutang that has bad personal hygiene.

    Surely you don't need to apologize Chris.
    Well, since I don't suffer from any of those things, I guess I can find no fault with Vince BUT, if I ever get one of those things, I will retract my apology!

    I hope Vince will come here and make post

    "you are forgiven". =)
    No need! It's all good and I have moved on down the road! Nothing is needed from Vince. I just wanted to apologize publicly and now I am on to other new adventures. I've heard that there is a mighty wizard that lives in the Emerald City that can help me make oodles of cash and I'm going to find out. Probably just another man behind another curtain, though! It doesn't matter because it's all in the journey NOT in the arrival!

          And Chris, kudos to you for an open apology.

            Hey Chris,

            I've known you for what I believe to be a very long time, and I've never seen you respond negatively or get wrapped up in the negative stuff.

            Lol at least you now know why it is better to take your usual route rather than a negative approach to something.

            Matter of fact, it's something we all can learn from.

            Anyway, from the sounds of it, I'm sure Vegas Vince is a forgiving fella!

            All the best ...
