I for one don't feel you have to apologize.
I don't remember you saying anything rude.
Our views differ, but that doesn't preclude a civilized discussion.

Your input has already been very beneficial because it has highlighted 
an issue which warrants a solution and has given people a push to solve 
it. It may not be your initially attempted solution (zh-tw), but it's 
still a step forward (towards fully integrated simple and traditional 
interoperability in zh).
Thesis, antithesis, synthesis! ;-)
