I would like to offer my apologies to the members. I came on strong in the forums and expressed some opinions which obviously didn't sit well with several senior members. I would say that in retrospect, I took some things personally and didn't spent enough time understand the people and personalities before lashing out. I also crossed some board etiquette which while unintentional, is something I should not have done and should have been more aware of.
I'm sure I've alienated a few members forever and I will just have to live with that. Several have however still been very helpful and I appreciate that and their tolerance.
I confess to not being very much closer to understanding the source of the problems I'm seeing in light of the fact that my chemistry tests 'pretty close' and has for a few months. I don't know what's causing my problems in the pool.
Here however, I've caused my own problems and I offer sincere apologies to the site owner, members, and the overall forum.
I placed this post here, in this area, not to hide it, but because I really wasn't sure where it should go.
