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.

*I'm sorry, but you're wrong and I'm better than you* That's how that apology comes across. Haven't even read the thread that lead to that, but not sure I want to.

I can't help but agree with HowClever.. You've had a bad attitude from the very start and I let a lot of your remarks slide until you really got out of hand.. I tried nicely to correct you and give good advice about how you would do better around the forum.. I appreciate your apology but it doesn't matter so much if you aren't going to put it in action.

Having an up and down life is absolutely NO excuse. I could write the book about up and down life and I don't have a bad attitude or use it as a crutch.

That's more like a backhand to the face to all the people who tried to help you, rather than an actual apology.

You ARE a kid at 15 y/o, especially to people more than 2 to 3 times your age.

At 15, how on earth would you know how much other people went through and be able to say you've been through, finished and accomplished more? Seriously.

When you apologize, anything you say after "I'm sorry ..." negates the apology. Especially if it's "I just ..." or "But...."

Honey, you're 15, you've got plenty of time to figure it out. This is a listen and learn time in your life ...

I sure would like to see this list of accomplishments,
Especially from a 15 year old person
Gotta be at least 3 or 4 miles worth of paper, I reckon lol

That was a bit contradictory ... I agree, this would be a more effective apology if you went back and apologized personally to each person you've offended and leave out the snotty "I've accomplished more than some do in a lifetime" comment.
