I perceive you to be an unbalanced person. See my numerous posting
asking you to seek help. Again, please seek help.
And I perceive an offense to have occured. You have threatened me in
Additionally, you have misspelled the word, "onl;y," which according
to your own rules of netiquette, you are in a rage.
You as a trained and experienced US Marine Gunnery Sargeant, I
perceive those combinations of events to have placed me in a position
I fear you, and I pray that you do not own a firearm.

What do you plan to do about it? I hope you don't kill me.

You have convinced me. I am afraid that you are going to hurt me.

I beg of you not to hurt me or my family.

Oh, thank goodness. You are merely going to call me names and not do

Oh, damnit!!! Another mispelling. And a threat of doing something
Are you going to *** me. Kill me? Kill my family???
Stebe, you've crossed the line!
I tell you to back off. Apologize.
Trust me, if you keep this up, the result will be anything

I never expressed even as a suggestion that I would hold a gun to
one's head, let alone your head.
It is all in Google.

I never said, nor meant, nor insinuated that I would hold a gun to
your head. I refer you to the first reference, where I said I wasn't
holding a gun to your head. I wonder why anxiety was present if for
not some mental problem on your part.
Hopefully, you have no history of counseling that might suggest that
you are an anxious person.
Do you have a history of counseling?

Your assumptions make for skunky gossip, nothing more. I suggest you
refer to real life. There was no intent to cause you anxiousness.
Are you a "naturally" anxious person?

The apology that I demand from you for putting me in fear of my life,
from a trained Marine who has stated that he would do something
*** and ILLEGAL (see above).

Yes, those threats that you've been uttering. Those mispelling that
indicate that you're in a rage. The training that you've received in
the US Marine Corps to kill people from faraway places. Your words
about doing something *** and illegal!
Those perceptions that I hold based upon your very own words.
...all of those things that you've uttered that I perceive as

The apology that you are about to render.
I'll give you an out - an out that many a thousand soldier has taken.
No Captain's Mast. No Article 15. No prison time. No fine. No
In your next posting, simply state: "No excuse, Sir," and be done
Absolutely no shame in it.
Be a good soldier and get on with it.
