I will accede to your statement of perceived insult. I will withdraw 
the appellation I bestowed and state thusly:

I, Sir Arenvald Kief av Kiersted, do publicly seek the forgiveness of 
Lord Lionardo Acquistapace of Bjornsborg. I apologize for any pain or 
insult that I have caused him on this, or any other, list.

I do also reserve the right to support or refute Lord Lionardo in the 
case of this matter or any other.

I would counter your rebuttal with: One can never have too much in 
the way of liquid assets.
