The expression is Don't let your mouth overload your a@@.
Good advice to everyone, especially with a worldwide audience. Too bad that he did.

It is tomorrow, and I am interested in what you have to say.

Gotta wait until tonight. I do work for a living!

Kevin, we've went back and forth a bit in comments at my blog over my initial reaction to the reaction to Zumbo's apology.

You were one of the first blogs I started reading, way back when, and so having read you for quite a few years, I realize you typically take the right stance. Between your comments, reading your posts and others (including a comment from Kim du Toit's Tech Support on his original entry about this), and stewing over it, I'm going to concede all points.

Something in a few of the comments to Zumbo's apology just set me off. It was nothing bloggers said, nothing you, or Kim du Toit, or Tam, or anyone else lambasting Zumbo had said. Since they hosed his blog and therefore the comments, I can't even go back and try to find what it was, and I don't remember specifics. Just that some of them struck me as horribly unfair.

I still maintain that Zumbo is just some senile old fart who doesn't have a clue about what happens outside his little hunting circle -- something that doesn't make him very useful for gun rights, or much use as a blogger.

I just wanted to out and out say I see your point, and apologize for saying anything that irked you -- none of my anger was aimed at you or any bloggers. And know this is a sincere thing, not a "I'm sorry you were offended" but rather "I was wrong, and I'm sorry, period."

I CERTAINLY don't support the fool things Zumbo said in the first place. I want to make sure that's abundantly clear.

The whole thing has left a bad taste in my mouth. The 1984 like deletion of his old posts, to the lynchmob actions by many. The happiness many showed when he was canned bothered me greatly.

Interesting that Outdoor Life has pulled the thread in question offline. But, then again, one supposes that when the corpse of your integrity is lying dead in the lobby stinking up the joint, one might relocate it away from view.

Man...36 hrs...1000's of comments...over a 3-day weekend. Ain't technology great?

One of the better posts I've seen on this subject.

Well done, sir.
