Today I wrote a slightly-less-than-flattering opinion of someone (mostly positive, but with a significant caveat - and in this day and age when any eBay feedback less than "AAAA++++++++" is seen as an unforgiveable insult, it's going to be the caveat that has the impact) and given an opinion on a long-dormant disagreement which the world could have done without reopening. Now I intended to send these viewpoints to a single recipient, but I appear to have inadvertently sent them to a mailing list. Oh dear.
While I do trust the people on the list to which it was sent, these things have a tendency to spread further than their original intended destination, often by very innocent means, often a significant period of time after the fact. Should this reach the person I was talking about, I can only hope that the entirety of the comment is seen in its full context, rather than a choice phrase or two being extracted, and I will indeed own and stand by what I have said as being not just the truth but the full truth of my opinion.

I never thought I'd see the day when Chris would write an LJ entry more cryptic than my average one. He's usually extremely candid, isn't he?

I doubt an avalanche will appear. I think you can rest easy.
Part of the reason we all like you so much is because you are honest and candid with people, while remaining cognizant of their feelings. I honestly doubt, knowing this person, that they're going to think badly of you for what you said (though I don't actually know what you said!).
*smooshes and cuddles* ♥
Nifty Knightmare icon, Chris. My associate Tim Connelley has screened a number of episodes from that show for the West Coast Crew. The concept is incredibly cool, but I find the show JUST a little too surreal for me.
But I can easily see why people like it.
