now i totally get what you're saying. i think if you would have worded it like that to begin with in your original post, i would have never gotten defensive in the first place. i understand what you're trying to say and it makes sense to me. i guess your original wording just made me get defensive because i read it very arrogantly. even if that wasn't your intention, it's how it read to me.... and i know i wasn't the only one.
anyway, your reponse back to me would have been very nice and civilized and totally awesome had you not added your ps in there. i really don't get what was passive, or aggressive in my comment? i think you're trying to read into something that isn't there. i said what i meant and i thought i said it pretty plainly. there wasn't any hidden meaning or backhanded bullshit like you're insinuating. i also don't appreciate the character assumption. i'm not passive aggressive at all, and your ps is just further proof that neither you, or your wife, know anything about me.

what i would have said
ever since "the post" happened, i haven't stopped thinking about it. if even just slightly. i don't want to give certain people the misconception that it has consumed me because that is not the case. i think i just feel like things were left very open ended and i never got to have a say. with his response and then the numerous emails that have followed, and are still rolling in (not from him), i haven't been able to let this situation go. since i couldn't respond to the comment on his blog, i figured i'd respond to it on mine. i feel that i have every right to post what i would have there, here. it's not about having the last word.. it's about having the chance to have A word. i'm also doing it publicly instead of emailing him directly because the initial comments and response were both public to begin with. i figured i'd keep them that way. (there is another reason but i will get into that at another time) this what i would have said:
