I assume your comment was a question.When is an apology not an apology, when it's laden with heavy sarcasm.
The anwer is: when those who turn to academia detectives have the wrong motivation to do so, and choose their 'investigations' based on that disingenuine motivation.
The genuine reason for turning academia detective is to verify an argument, or test an hypothesis, or validate a qualification, etc.
A frivolous comment on the behaviour of a forum is way off those genuine motivations.
But as long as the academic rigour continues, for all, I'll be content.
