I do defend unfettered freedom of expression, even if it leads to painful results like reading horrible statements like Mr. Terd wrote. And because of that, I would rather have you not confuse things and people. I find it offensive to be confused with people who write things like those which Mr. Terd wrote.

Dont leave the site though dusty booty. Dont make the same mistake I did speaking out of anger and giving everyone the middle finger.

You shouldnt attack recluse either. He spoke one paragraph out of anger and then said "ooops didnt mean it" and now you are saying he cannot be forgiven....ever....wow. Now if I came back stating I meant exactly what I said to hell with you all then that is different. You cant have that kind of "righteous" anger then be upset when the target has a change of heart or admits to mispeaking. That means you win. You were right I was wrong.
Now you add lying to the mix. You came back to do exactly what's been done here, to stir everyone up. You couched your apology in weasel words, but we all know you meant what you said, and so did Recluse. That kind of racist splurge comes from someone who knows racism deep in their heart - shit, I've been on the other end of that crap my whole life. Been fighting those attitudes as long as I've lived. You meant every single word and so did Recluse, don't lie and say you didn't. Anger can make me say all kinds of things, but no matter how amplified the emotion, it's always true.

Well, bravo, you succeeded in getting what you wanted. Your flag-waving, bible-thumping, warwmongering friends came out of the woodwork to support your psychotic little rant. You got me riled up and angry enough to walk away from a site that I once considered one of the best places on the web to visit and also made me question the friendships of people that I thought I'd come to know over the last year and a half.

Bravo.

Well done.

1.) For myself, I never advocated censoring or banning anyone, even when that topic was still hot.

but

2.) IMHO, what someone says in a moment of anger says more about who they are than what they put through their internal filters when taking more time to reflect.

Now you know how I felt when I read the post that started all of this. The anger consumed me and I lashed out in the same way you are doing now. You are making the same mistake that I did. If you want a bit of advice from someone who has been there...put me on the ignore list and go about your day. This is a great site and you should not leave it because of my opinions.

Anger made me call my wife "flumpy" once but I did not mean it.

We both spoke out of anger and apologized the same day to many people...maybe not you personally.

The first stone. I take it you meant everything you ever said out of anger?

I admit my statement you quoted was harsh. The question was never was it wrong to say or was it a bit racist. I admitted to that already. I admitted to that and apologized. So did recluse. So i ask what is your point? Are you saying we should leave the site?

------------

The reason why a lot of people have an issue with you here and the other sites which we both go to ardeegee is that you have a certain way about you where you can never be wrong and a habit of looking down on other people and their beliefs. Your comments and responses and youtubes are often negative and mean towards other people's religion, culture, opinions and beliefs. You are the biggest hypocrite of all.

Dear MobileRead Members:

I notice that there are quite a number of rude remarks flying back and forth in this Thread.

As a Moderator, I choose not to be in this particular Forum (I have other areas of concern), but I have been asked personally by a MobileRead Member to look over the contents here and to get things straightened out. After reading all the comments, I am disheartened by the negative tone and the constant bickering and attacks.

This must stop now, please, or the Thread will be closed.

Please take the time NOW to read our Posting Guidelines if you are confused about what is acceptable to post.



Don

"Everything" may be a bit wide, but, yes-- most of the times when I say something in anger, I'm saying something that I really mean and that I've just been biting my tongue on. "Anger" is when you say true things that you would otherwise diplomatically hold back.

Quote:

No, like I said earlier, I didn't advocate banning anyone-- but you can't give an "apology" that isn't really an apology and expect everyone to kiss and make up, either. Especially when it is done under deceptive circumstances (yes, I honestly did click on the thread originally only because I expected cute little kittens-- the cute little kittens in the other thread are my cute little kittens.)

----------
I'm curious to know what "other sites we both go to" you are thinking about-- I don't post on many sites, and this is the most "mainstream" of any of them. And I am no hypocrite. I'll say it up front-- I'm a liberal. I'm a (little "s") socialist. I'm an unrepentant atheist. And I think that religion is the opiate of dumbasses. I find it an eternal source of frustration that actual adults in the 21st century actually believe that magical sky fairies are real. But I (for the most part) manage to not step into unrelated threads posted by religious people on religious topics and point and laugh. I only really attack religion here to mention proponents attempting to dumb down science education. And Youtube posts? I post Youtube posts in the "favorite Youtube" thread that I find informative or funny. But IMHO there is a galaxy of difference between not pretending to respect religion and advocating the slaughter of an entire nation. I think Islam is as dumb as any other religion, but I don't advocate killing all Muslims. (But if I could snap my fingers and may all religious beliefs in the world instantly disappear, I damn sure would.)

I'm no hypocrite-- I don't say that I have the right to not be offended, but you don't. You are perfectly free to say things that I find offensive-- and I'm perfectly free to decide what I think of you as a human being from those things that you say. (As you are free to judge me from my lack of deference to superstitions.)

(Edit-- this was being written before Don's post and said post was unseen until after I submitted, but I think I'll leave it be.)

I never once made an apology expecting to make up with anyone, ardeegee. Every single post on this thread I stated something along the lines of

"I am not asking for anyone to "forgive" or forget what I said. I am simply asking you to leave me alone if you are going to go out of your way to bring up what happened to take a jab at me. "

----------------

I made this thread to ask you and people like you to quit harassing me on other threads and pm.

I agree to a certain point with what you're saying here. To be honest though there have been times when I've said things in anger for the sole purpose of hurting someone else. I'm not proud but I've done it, on the other hand I can honestly say that I didn't mean them when I said them. I'm not saying that that is the case in any of the posts in question here I'm just pointing it out.

On the other hand (this is not addressed to you ardeegee), regardless of what was said or why, if someone is legitimately sorry for what they have said I think everyone who took offense needs to give it there best shot to accept that apology. For those who say the purpose of this thread was underhanded or done with intent of stirring things and then to call them a liar, I can only say that there is only one person that knows the intent of the post - that is poster. We can take him at his word or not, if we don't then we don't, there is no need to resort to name calling or the other blatantly personal attacks I've seen.
