Hi, I'm looking for an apology that was when somebody was accused of plagiarizing some fics. I think the plagiarized fics were all from The Sentinel fandom, but the plagiarizer turned them into Sherlock Holmes with the names and some of the details changed. It wasn't that long ago, but I can't find the apology in my delicious bookmarks. Can anybody help? I remember that people said it was an okay apology, until somebody got mad in the comments about the OP using a sarcastic icon which made it a fauxpology.

too soon?

< shrugs > Depends - I looked at the icon and thought 'obtuse or imbecile' or 'imbecilic obtuseness.' But, then, detecting myself in the act of committing an 'ism' I realized I should change 'imbecile' to 'feeble-minded' but then I thought 'no, in the end that, in itself, is an insult to the triangular feeble-minded community,' just go with stupid!

Icons: they'll always trip you up at the worst possible time.
