Marty you have finally managed to give me an apology by admitting that you lied by claiming that I had suggested malfeasance, when in fact it was your spin on my statement that created that interpretation. Thank you - it would, you must admit, have been a lot easier for you to have admitted that your original statement was in fact a deliberate or accidental misinterpretation of what I said. I will be charitable and assume that you did not intend to lie but instead you found yourself in a position that you could not escape from without embarrassment, but in the end I am glad to see that honesty did at last triumph.

I do believe we have found Dr. McKay's profession.

I wouldn't call it that.  But you have your own belief system, and if you believe that's an apology, who am I to unsettle your faith?

That is the beauty of apophasis.  You get to suggest things without taking any responsibility for the suggestion.

I think it is a deliberate and accurate categorization of what you said.

I'm grateful to see how much you esteem charity and honesty.  These are splendid metaphysical realities.  Your intention to be charitable becomes you.
LTM,

Marty you are too modest - an apology is always good for the soul - you are to be congratulated. Once more I offer my thanks and I am happy that this little contretemps has been resolved.
