Dear All,

It has come to my attention that I may have upset fellow posters on the thread now titled "Aswad Thomas".

When originally posted the thread was titled "Assad Thomas". I posted a comment last night after a few beers which included the word "gassing" as a reference to President Assad's alleged use of chemical weapons on the Syrian people in 2013.

Now sober, I appreciate that this is not seen as funny to everyone but especially when there is also a reference to Jewish people earlier in the thread that I did not see prior to hastily posting my comment.

A later comment linked the two posts which I then referenced with a seeming disregard of the anti-semitic connotations that the post could suggest. Being the massive idiot I am I didn't make the anti-semitic connection until I was alerted by a moderator.

I am very embarrassed about the posts and I can assure posters that this was not my intention.

I apologise to those offended, Rob and the other mods and to all fishy posters in general.

Thought it was a bit much at the time but kudos for the apology and explanation.

Alcohol and internet don't make good bedfellows and we've all done it.

As mentioned previously, the internet and booze are at times unhealthy.
Am sure no one will have been overly offended and am sure the apology should appease those that were



“To put it in gentleman’s terms if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they’re good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee”

Don't beat yourself up about it. Out of character and you've apologised so forget it.

Thanks for the apology. This subject is now closed so I have locked the thread.
