I know I said apologies tend to put people in good standing on this forum, but I think I stand corrected.
It's nice that you apologized, however can you really call it an apology when you've managed to climb back onto your horse and continue with your high and mighty attitude? I'm speaking from experience here... when I was your age I distinctly remember a thread I made asking questions about jumping. I thought I was pretty hot stuff, and had a simple question (how many times a week should I jump my horse) and WELL I didn't get what I wanted to hear, threw a fit, acted like a brat, stuck my nose in the air and I honestly can't remember if I apologized to the people I offended. Probably not, I was a bit snotty. I stand by what I said, I personally believe you should apologize personally to the people you have offended and take their advice graciously, recognize that they have experience over you and HUMBLE yourself.
Again, it's nice that you apologized, but to me it seems to be lacking the sincerity that colours maturity.
