I want only peace from now on.

I have realized all the problems I have caused for these forums. I have wasted enough time, space, and bandwidth arguing. I have acted rashly these past few weeks. And for that, I would like to apologize to everyone I have caused trouble for. I shall not list any names, but those people know who they are.

I have been accused of trolling, flaming others, throwing out false accusations, disagreeing with the administration, and other assorted misdemeanors. My aggression has been more trouble than I have been worth.And to all those out there, I owe apologies to, I will say

I WAS WRONG.

Throwing stupid and pointless based on what I believed of a situation is not something that I should have done-and it is not something I shall intend to do in the future.

Sharing my opinion bluntly is not something I should do-and it is not something I shall intend to do in the future.

Continuing arguments after they have ended is not something I should do-and it is not something I shall intend to do in the future.

I can go on and on, but as my memory is horrible and I am already forgetting all the other various crimes I have committed against these forums, I shall end the list here.

From now on, I intend not to start any arguments and to drop a starting argument immediately. I wish there to be no animosity among us. And with that, I shall end with a classic line:

Can't we all just get along?

EDIT:If you really want an example, go to the Announcements page.

I shall hope that this is the last apology I shall ever have to make.

Re: I want only peace from now on.

I forgive you. I can't keep grudges for very long anyways.

Thank you for writing all this though; I can tell it's well thought out and sincere.

About some of the fights...lots of them were small things that you said that I could have let go, and they got blown out of proportion. So for that, I am sorry.

Re: I want only peace from now on.

Just to be safe, I now have a plan that I shall use to stop any arguments that I should be unfortunate enough to get into.

I do not wish to have any more arguments with either you or with anyone else, Stormy.

Re: I want only peace from now on.

well this sucks, first doppel, then ratchet, then adam, now a guy

IM RUNNING OUT OF PEOPLE TO ARGUE WITH >_<

on the upside i can pretend that theyve all left/stopped arguing because of my incredible debating skills

then i can argue with myself about how healthy it is to delude myself with such notions of grandeur

there is no such thing as a discussion without disagreement, or at least any discussion without disagreement would consist of:

"i like this"
"me too"
"this is what i like about this"
"me too"

the whole point of a discussion forum is for everyone who has an opinion to voice it, if there are 2 opinions which contradict you have a discussion or a debate

ive said it, A Guy has said it (im pretty sure, though apparently has since changed his mind), and others have too, i cant remember names

there is nothing wrong with arguing, just keep it civil and sensible, the only problem with A Guy's recent argument is that he was discussing forum rules, and when SR disagreed with him he continued arguing, which is silly since SR makes the rules and so has better understanding of them than anyone

apart from that its not like A Guy has really caused many problems, at the very least none that have gone unresolved

Re: I want only peace from now on.

I've lurked too long in this forum for a while, and I don't see much of a major conflict with you...

Seriously, this topic surprised me. I wasn't expecting this. You may say I'm clueless, but I'm not -- I've been browsing through a lot of threads lately without anyone knowing (hopefully).

I'll argue with you! Then again, we both agree on a lot of things from what I've seen so far on your posts. sad

It's just like me and some other friends with politics. We always end up agreeing so we fight over stupid things like how big the Olmec statue from Legends of the Hidden Temple is instead. And trust me, there was an actual fight like that, and people were even calling each other names and it got out of hand. They apologized to each other though, and it was cool. It also made for a hilarious and ridiculous debate to treasure. (I have the log of it somewhere.)

Honestly, I've never had a problem with A Guy either. I never have a problem with people telling it like it is. Even if I end up being a called an insult during an argument, I don't get offended. I've said this before, but I think it's just human nature to get a little heated to defend your opinion, so nobody should take stuff like that personally. Either way, if he doesn't want to start arguments anymore I'll respect his decision.

Please forgive me if you felt that an apology to people that I have wronged was not owed.

Anyways, I shall cease this argument now. It has gone on long enough. Say what you have to say about me.

to cease an argument, an argument has to have started, and that isnt the case, what we have here is me disagreeing with you, and you rolling over and playing dead like a little *bleep*, its sad to see to be honest, from someone who used to be a good person who stood up for what he believes in

Re: I want only peace from now on.

[sub]Forgive me if it's none of my business or if I'm mistaken, but what I saw was you trying to provoke him into an argument.

If that's how he wants to act, there's nothing wrong with that. =/[/sub]

except the reason he's given for acting like that is the "supposed" belief that it is wrong, which is bullcrap

it seems a lot like something that can be summed up by an old saying, i dont know if its exclusive to australia, or even my family, but it goes like this

you'd cut off your nose to spite your face
ie. if your face was annoying you, you'd cut off your nose to get back at it... despite the fact that its your nose and youre doing yourself harm

it seems like A Guy got *bleep*y that people disagreed with him in that argument not long ago, so he's basically said "fine if you dont agree with me, i just wont argue anymore, thatll teach you"

now thats not necessarily the scenario, but considering the same person who's opinion of debating used to be

is now that he should never disagree with anyone ever again, its a very drastic change of heart

Re: I want only peace from now on.

The expression "cut off your nose to spite your face" is here in the U.S. as well.

My intention was not to get back at anyone by not arguing-it is to make things better. In fact, I am enjoying this as well.

Re: I want only peace from now on.

I'm sure we all forgive you A Guy, even so there may be some who you have hurt enough that you need to build up trust and a friendship again but I'm sure that from this apology you'll try to do that.
