Please allow me to first apologize for whatever it was I did to get "bozo-ed" (the first I've heard of the term, I'm still not entirely sure what it means). There was a thread with a user in my area. He mentioned he was looking for a programmer to help with some issues he was having. I mentioned I was in his area, and to contact me if interested.
I assumed solicitation would be something like, "hey man, I can fix that for you for 20 bucks"... which I would never do. However, I see now how my statement was considered solicitation, and I assure you it won't happen again.
I have worked with WordPress about six months; contributing to plugin development, helping in the forum whenever possible, and developing networks and relationships. I would be EXTREMELY grateful if my reputation was not affected in a derogatory manner (again, I'm not sure what "bozo-ed" means).
I volunteer on the Graphene theme forum, where I am a moderator. I understand the rigors of moderating, and I have the utmost respect for all of you.
I tried to do a search on google for "wp forums bozo"... but all I could find was an article or two basically telling me I was an idiot.
I am sorry. I learned my lesson. It will NOT happen again. Is there anything I can do to work on getting this removed?
