Please help me write a letter of apology.

<p>Tonight, an online friend and I were discussing the West Virginia disaster on AIM. Anyway, our discussion turned into a debate, which turned into a heated argument. I was especially angry, because I was watching the ABC Special at the same time; I even contemplated sending an angry letter to the mine owners, who my friend believed were not, in any way, responsible for what happened. Perhaps I was being irrational. I was able to repress my anger, but I think I sounded frustrated as a result. I did not resort to personal attack. Anyway, he ended up blocking me but not before accusing me first of something, which I took as an insult. I sit here now thinking whether or not I should write a letter of apology, and if so, how I should write it.</p>

<p>I don't know him in real life, but still, I feel bad. Any advice is appreciated.</p>

<p>Why not simply say to your AIM partner what you just stated to us, and keep it simple. </p>

<p>"I want to apologize for my role in what happened tonight. I don't know you in real life, but still, I feel bad."</p>

<p>Yeah I always have "apology discussions" rather than write long letters.</p>

<p>just say sorry. simple as that</p>

<p>It is better to confront (online, since you don't know the person in real life) the person rather than send a letter because it is more personal.</p>

<p>Now that I've thought about it, I'm not so sure if I'm sorry anymore, but I certainly feel bad still. I think I handled the situation pretty well, and my view on the issue hasn't changed.</p>

<p>Also, I'm pretty sure I'm still blocked on AIM. So, my email might consist of "sorry" if I decide that's the course of action I want to take. Right now, I don't know if I would be saying it out of conviction.</p>

<p>Thanks everyone.</p>

<p>haha I love my senior year so far. i've been in like 5 of these instances so far in my school with real people, and even friends. I</p>
