Even though I didn't ask for such a gesture, I realize now that I too have extended a certain amount of prejudice towards you, as I didn't expect an apology from you, or better from the type of person I pegged you as, and didn't think I'd be the one to send you for an introspective scuba diving.
I don't remember if I've extended any stereotypes to you outright, but I've implied it by saying that your linchpin is defending immorality, and I don't think this apology will make me change my mind about that remark as so far there's an ideological difference: I am a self declared anarchists, rational and unapologetic in that regard, and you have on numerous occasions defended the absurdity of the state and the immortality of delegating powers you don't have onto others. What I did say, was to call you an idiot, hypocrite and liar, and even though you acted like such, and gave reasons for that, that's not a overall characteristic, only a situational one, and I have my fair share of such situational characteristics. I wholeheartedly agree that such situations are a great primer for further soul searching.
Your gesture is both unexpected and appreciated.
In the end, I am you, you are me, and we are only as strong as the weakest one.
