It’s come to my attention recently that my long-running DinoTam theme has caused some people to think that I have some sort of beef with Tamarind of Righteous Orbs fame and chose to express it through posts about an obnoxious dinosaur.
Well, I don’t.
And while Tam has explicitly not asked me to cease and desist, I do feel that if something that started as a joke has gotten to the point where there are questions about my intent, then it clearly has crossed too far over the line. I’m just not the sort of person who, in knowing that something I have done has genuinely irritated or bothered someone (particularly someone who I really do respect), am going to keep doing it just because I “don’t mean it like that” or whatever.
Anyhow, my purpose in posting this publicly rather than quietly never posting about DinoTam again is twofold:
Firstly, I do want to apologize, again, for taking the joke too far. And for being rather thoughtless along the way.
Secondly, I would request that anyone else who has participated in the DinoTam phenomenon please consider joining me in letting this post be the last mention.
