Sir Balvin,

 I wish to understand your words, so for purposes of clarification I am
asking the following.

 Am I to understand from this that you believe that I made up everything
that happened and that it was my "world view" that caused me to feel
that I was rebuffed when trying to become involved in Northkeep
activities? My expectations of people to help me connect with people
with the same interests as mine within this group are considered by you
to be "unrealistic"?
 So what you are saying, in summary, is that I should shut up and find
something else to do because other people have had nothing but good
experiences and so I should not tell anyone that I have a problem (like
Laird Ian suggested I should have done) or am I completely
misunderstanding? Please, before more miscommunications occur, clarify
exactly what you meant to say here, and if your words were, in fact,
directed at my sharing of my feelings or at the gentleman who left with
his wife because they too felt unwelcome and couldn't afford to play

Perhaps none of this is accurate at all, and this is just a failing of
email communications itself combined with high emotions. I would prefer
to think so, but fear that is not the case.

Thank you and sincerely,
