In other words, "I'm not apologizing to any of you because I'm not remotely sorry I did it. Assaulting someone publically is a very bad thing to do, and we can add it to the long list of other very bad things that I do without any remorse. The only thing that I would actually worry about is if Connie Willis is upset with me enough to call me on my behavior, in which case I will apologize enough to get her to let go of it, and only to her."
I'm impressed by how adult you are, Mr. Ellison. That's 'adult' as in 'adult videos,' right?
