This is a serious thread, of a serious nature, and I expect it to be taken as such.

The title says it all. I want to know what your problem with me is. Clearly some of you are vocal that you have problems with me, but many others are much more passive. Both those that vocalize, and others that have told me personally that I am not wanted or respect here, imply there are many people that take issue with my existence. However, only one person has ever taken the time to actually tell me what their issue, in part, with me is.

So, let's clear the air, shall we? Further, since these criticisms represent problems that should be corrected, feel free to offer advice. I ask that you be precise, accurate, speak of specifics if possible.

If you are afraid of backlash, you may PM me, and I will post your thoughts here anonymously.

Never met ya, don't know anything about you. This is a debate site so if you are expressing views people don't like, tough sht for them. It isn't your problem they don't get this is a place to express differing view points and not a confirmation bias wet nurse to run to to support their delusional beliefs if in fact they are delusional.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

I have no problem with you, and I never have. I think you might have perceived way back in the day--maybe as long as a year ago when I was on my prog account--that I did, but in reality I actually appreciated our relatively heated political discussions (and the fact that we still probably agree on next to nothing). I think you're a valuable member with good insights who provides an immense benefit to the community.

I have no idea who you are, but judging by your profile my guess is that people don't like you because you're not a Gnostic atheist and you're not a liberal. That's not my opinion obviously, just the general active majority.

I've got no problem with you. You frustrate the hell outta me in mafia sometimes, but I judge people by whether or not I've invite them to a game I mod, and you'd definitely get an invitation.

Actually, the underlined was said as friendly advice, and I was quite thankful for their candor...and, I won't reveal any sources.

I've noticed you get into heated argument with other members. But I don't think anyone has anything against you as a person. Pretty sure it's mainly controversy over your play style.

You're too preoccupied with what other people think of you.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

This is false.
Ignoring the fact that what people think of me affects how they interact with me, is just foolish. And, being on a website where a cold shoulder is given, it is completely fair to ask what they take issue with, specifically. Is it not?

Pretty sure it's mainly controversy over your play style.
