As many of you are already aware, prior to my hiatus I made quite a controversial comment, saying that I would break the legs of a certain freakish-looking individual, if he/she were to show up at my door. If you know me then you know that I like to argue, and won't shy away from controversial comments in order to instigate an argument or debate, in the forums. However, I will now admit that I may have gone a little too far with that comment...maybe a teensie bit. I said it, I've always regretted having said it even though I tried to defend it, and I apologize for having said it.

I'm not a violent person and I don't condone violence against anyone, or any group, that doesn't present a physical threat. I have never, and would never instigate violence against someone for simply knocking on my door, even though I said that I would. It was a stupid thing to say, and I regret it.

I do not and will not apologize for my opinions and beliefs, nor do I apologize for most of my comments, but as I said, this one was over the top and I do apologize to those who were offended by it. This is proof that our words can come back to haunt us and, even in a debate forum, we should choose our words wisely and make our point in a more rational way than the one that I chose, at that time.

So...if you want to keep kicking me in the bo-bo's far that comment, or my opinions and beliefs, please do so in this thread instead of derailing other discussions or arguments with issues that have nothing to do with what is being discussed.

Thank you for reading.

Why are you apologising for that comment? It was genius. It succeeded in pissing off half of DDO, which makes for excellent masturbation material, along with my shemale sandwich and stags galor porn.

Pissing off half of DDO = Half of DDO's hormones are flowing = Good fap material if I have ever seen any.

It is a good rule in life never to apologize. The right sort of people do not want apologies, and the wrong sort take a mean advantage of them.

You'll rarely if ever see me apologize and when I do, it's only because I messed up and haven't stuck to my principles which are "never apologize".

I have no idea what you said that pissed so many people off, but if it was advocating violence against LGBT people, then I doubt to an extreme point that anyone who is LGBT or a true advocate of LGBT rights is going to suddenly respect you because you downgraded from "Advocate of violence against LGBT people" to "Advocating forms of Christian moral superiority over homosexuals in the eyes of the law".

It may earn you a tad more civility, but will never magically regain someone's respect or give an inherently good first impression of you. Toodles :)

Seems to me that's just prideful, arrogant, and unable to admit when you've made a mistake.

It's not. If anything I'm unable to admit when I've done something right. It's just that people who will accept your apology are the least likely to care if you give one and the people who care if you give one only want it to have some sort of emotional leverage over you.

Not to mention it's living in the past. I think we just need to focus on doing our best in the present and if you apologize typically the focus shifts to the past.

Honestly Endark if you wronged me I'm just as likely to forgive you if you apologize than if you don't. Likely you'll be forgiven by the time out next encounter comes around and apologizing will only force me to be reminded of a time when I was hurt somehow.

I'm not sure where you've acquired that idea, but it doesn't match up to anything or anyone I know. Apologies are supposed to be humiliating in a sense. They're supposed to be a moment where you give someone emotional power over you. Because you're the one who has wronged them. Not apologizing demonstrates a disregard for them.


Not to mention it's living in the past. I think we just need to focus on doing our best in the present and if you apologize typically the focus shifts to the past.

The focus shifts to the past so that you can do better in the future.

Not apologizing doesn't state that at all. That's just how you interpret it, but we'll get nowhere exploring that specific topic. So I'll move on.


Not to mention it's living in the past. I think we just need to focus on doing our best in the present and if you apologize typically the focus shifts to the past.

The focus shifts to the past so that you can do better in the future.

Can't you just regret it the moment after and then do better in the future without apologizing?

It actually seems that the people who apologize most are also the one's most likely to reoffend. Like the man who habitually beats his wife and apologizes every single time.

If you're truly upset with how you acted, you'd beat yourself up so much on the inside that no apology would humiliate you enough to feel as bad as you already do. If you were truly remorseful it would serve no purpose, other than to put yourself in a position of weakness.

Honestly Endark if you wronged me I'm just as likely to forgive you if you apologize than if you don't. Likely you'll be forgiven by the time out next encounter comes around and apologizing will only force me to be reminded of a time when I was hurt somehow.

Sometimes an apology is warranted, whether or not it garners any return benefit.
