Well! You are certainly entitled to your opinion. I disagree with it.

But it is obvious that you are offended, and I don't mind apologizing
to you.

I'm sorry, William.

If you can give a better explanation as to how I insulted the list as 
a corporate whole, one that convinces me, I will be perfectly happy
to issue a blanket apology. But really, I feel it is more meaningful
if the people who feel insulted - like Andy and yourself - tell me
about it in front of the list, and give me an opportunity to apologize
to each one of you individually, also in front of the list.

Thank you very much for giving me this opportunity to apologize to you.
