How to destroy your credibility
COMPLETE TEXT OF JAMES HARVEY'S APOLOGY
To those out there on the internet, calling me a plagarist, I say this:
I am most sincerely sorry.
I meant no disrespect, nor did I intend (or have it interpreted) that I was taking credit for items I had posted. I was using a very well assembled reference, and appending to it, however that wasn'tever mentioned, nor does it need to be any further as the offending post was removed and purged.
I meant only repsect and admiration of my community peers, not trying to take credit for thier works in any way. Yes, perhaps I had "written" I had developed or written certain codes, as I've done similiar projects, and often do get them mixed up.
I am trying to get the exposure out about ColdFusion, and how dynamic and powerful a development language it is, and I can appreciate everyone's views about that. That's it isn't as "dead" as others would like to think, and assist in making it a prevelant language again.
Of that I am guilty, and I am sorry, with all my soul, about that.
Yes, perhaps I should have made it exceedingly clear in my writting that I was not the source of the reference, but merely a messenger and trying to get the exposure for the language back out there.
For a long time, I hadn't seen what other communities were saying about the coldfusion one, until now.
I'm sorry for promoting a fantastic language, I'm sorry for not citing my sources properly or clearly, and I'm most sorry that you all aren't happy with getting your work admired and respected by another peer.
