My post was not carefully worded--I was "Pondering" the Public "Go-get-ums" and other comments we post here on the Forum.
I certainly don't want to leave anyone out when "rooting for them", because they are all great!
I wouldn't sweat it too much. Just like anything else, folks are liable to take offense to an innocent statement. It happens in forums like this.
If they're that easily offended I'd suggest they stay away from competition because that's only the tip of the iceberg!
