I'm just being silly. Ignore me if you like. Sorry for any offense.

Sorry for any offense.I don't want to ignore you, I enjoy your posts very much and I get the joke and knew you were being silly. Its just that I couldn't tell if your sarcasm was directed at commercial beers and style guidelines (funny), or towards the original poster (not funny). I noticed that the OP hasn't been on the thread since it took a turn away from the comments that were trying to help with the question. I was wondering if they were turned off to the forum which would be a shame for someone who has just joined as they would miss out on a lot.
I saw this photo today and thought of this thread. It's on facebook, but the privacy is 'public'. You should be able to see it even without an account. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10203466129127457&set=a.1767971452649.95126.1640072923&type=1
At first glance I thought it was something from Adam and Eve

Looks like this may be the answer. I would thank you, but I am a style nazi, and... ew.Sometimes its hard to judge intent and tone in settings like this. Are you making fun of the OP? It seems this person wants to make a purple colored beer for a good reason and it could be a fun experiment and I think folks were having fun trying to figure out the best way to do this. Maybe there is an ongoing joke that I don't get that you know the OP is in on about style guidelines but I don't think this thread has anything to do with any style. I apologize if I'm wrong and you were not criticizing the OP or otherwise being snarky. Just wondering what these posts were about.

I *was* a little bit of a jerk, although not on purpose. My comments involved inside jokes that were not fair to outside folks, which is most everyone. The OP is very new to the forum and I certainly hope that we have not scared him away.No need to say anything more about this Pete. Let's just forget about it.
