Should I apologise for posting constant threads, for and against circumcision, that are met with little response?


I will continue, regardless, until America resolves this anomaly that has plagued its culture for so long.

I have read just the first page of this link and was surprised and pleased to find that iVillage chose to speak with a positive stance towards the intact foreskin and its unnecessary removal. 


I will read pages 2-6 later, and perhaps I will find contrary statements... perhaps...?

I don't think you need to apologies. I know the problem I have is mostly one of time. You've started interesting threads but I am frequently engaged elsewhere. ;) I'll try to be more attentive.

An apology would be totally uncalled for, Christopher. This board as well as many others on ivillage would have few and far between thread starts if not for the CL's. Many readers are reluctant to start a new subject for likely with as many different reasons as people. It is human nature to read, mentally agree and then move on rather then comment unless one disagrees strongly enough to respond.

Thank you, Charlotte... and I understand why you may choose to read but not comment. I believe there may be others like you. Your post was

Dick, I will reply as soon as I can. At this moment it's after 3.30 am... I have to be on duty through the night, but I must deal with an incident.

It's important to realise that Tony and probably most of the regular members of iVilage's Circumcision Support board would say the very same of the Foreskin Support board AND this Circumcision Debate board. "

Christopher, you have nothing to apologise for.
