Title: Official Apologies Thread (For Anyone)
Post by: justin3009 on December 01, 2008, 06:16:07 pm
Probably meaningless to most people but I'd like to apologize for being such a...arrogant person lately and in the past.  I think if you've known me from the past and now that I'm a completely different person, but that still doesn't make up for how rudely I've talked about people.

One at Zeality, I should definitely apologize about how when I stated that "Time's Illusion this" and "TI that" etc etc.  Takes me awhile to get to past events and think of them, but that was really out of line and completely pointless to do.  Maybe I was jealous that your project was doing better?  Who knows.  Anywho, I thought I'd just get this out there in the open.

Seems rather short for an apology but...it works?  I really did feel the need to apologize to everyone and this was the only place I could place it in that's not Chrono related.  So...I guess pretty much that I'm truly sorry.

Oh, I barely even remember that...I have some vague idea, but it'd take ages with SMF search to find it, so whatever. No problem.

I guess I'll use this opportunity...

Maybe we should make this the official Apology thread for people that feel the need to apologize for something that they've done to people from their years gone?

IcyBrian may be packed with mannerless jerks (judging from reactions to my mentioning IB at VGMCentral, a lot of people feel this way)...

One, I'd like to express my surprise that IcyBrian has forums, as I must've missed them. I used to go there for fan art and fanfics (A true Chrono fan would go there and check out their fanfic archives for CT and CC), and then I lost the ability to access the Internet at will without restrictions. I can say this, I felt screwed, and still do today.

Two, I'd also like to apologize to those who have held the opinion that I might be a Troll or some idiot from GameFAQs (while GameFAQs is cool for the info I get, I never truly saw anything bad there. Then again, I'm rarely on there). I'm just super active, a trait which, I must confess, got me the BanHammer on a Yu-Gi-Oh! site a friend showed me. To those who expressed annoyance at me quoting, I normally only quote what is relevant to what I'm gonna post, or I don't quote at all. How's that for improvement?

Maybe we should make this the official Apology thread for people that feel the need to apologize for something that they've done to people from their years gone?

Supported for reasons Justin has already stated.

I'd like to apologize to all the people who couldn't understand my English when I first came to this forum.
But I also thanks you all for helping me with it. Thanks to that I got 85% on my English exam.
This helped me to improve my English.

Justin, within the last year or so you've been awesome. I'm quite sure I've at least been here that long, and a year is a long time, so...   yeah.

      o   To the community: For an attitude I don't (if I ever really did) possess, but I need to get it off too. No, it wasn't cocky or anything...  I feel slightly "noobish". Like I haven't been in the community long enough for my fanhood to simmer down. My feelings for being in a Chrono Trigger community differ from those of being in a Zelda or Gradius community because I actually get enthusiastic for this franchise. I see lots of young people get enthusiastic over stuff at The Hylia, and I'm like "that's..  that's great. get over it. -_-"  Here, I'm a little more like that person. So I've kinda kept myself on the low. Now that Darkman is here (and I hope he stays), maybe I'll let my hair down a little.

      o   To Darkman: For essentially flaming him just now (lightering? little tiny embering? You get it was a jab.). "Since this guy is here I won't look as noobish next to him."   In all actuality though, what I mean to say is that by seeing someone else who is still that exuberant about the games that he wants to talk with others here about it -practically in real time-  I can start to see what I am and what I am not, and I feel a little more comfortable just being myself here.  In reality, I owe you my thanks.

...Hells yeah. Have you seen Alaer Kino's work? Also check out Kay's sketches, and some of Maggie Sue's Magus/Schala stuff.

Apologies to ZeaLitY for not wikifying the latest Chrono Cross File Exploration Thread results yet. I will get around to it though...! I'm just on a Chrono Trigger ROM hacking binge at the moment.

Apologies to V_Translaka for making half the "AHHHH!" posts following the revelation that Schala would be the bonus final boss of CT:DS. I was...giddy.

Jeez, this is the mushiest Compendium thread evar.

Post by: x_XTacTX_x on December 01, 2008, 10:19:58 pm
I'll take this chance, considering it is almost the new year.

Apologies to V_Translanka for being such a thorn in his side when I started posting here up until about this summer, I was an annoying little bastard.

Apologies to the entire CC:DBT team for again, being incredibly annoying and posting so many off topic things while the rest of you guys were working your rears off to contribute, as well as never delivering that Guardia map I promised.

And a very heartfelt apologies to anyone I may have wronged in the past here, and another apology for letting you slip my mind.

I'm glad his thread was made, this stuff needed to be said.
Title: Re: Apology
Post by: FaustWolf on December 01, 2008, 10:30:19 pm
The Guardia map is no prob tact -- whatthebleepady more than compensated. Since we're mentioning CC:DBT, my apologies for taking the CC:DBT team completely off track by proposing the CT ROM hack spinoff, which will no doubt push us back a year (with the benefit of a product within the foreseeable future).

No way. Your presence is really great here; it'd definitely be missed, and not just in the "now no one gets my Grimmjow references" sense.

Hah, for Faustwolf, it's no problem unless you and Luminaire85 are planning to suddenly disappear in the near future :D I'd just be worried that something would be lost. I sort of remember when we were trying to figure out the "table of contents" for the Cross disc, and how everything felt so impossibly difficult...the Cross file exploration project is truly a crown jewel.

I'm sorry for being so awesome that some of you guys feel the need to apologize to me (I read "Apologies to V_Translanka...and then some other words I didn't pay attention to)...It's not my fault for being so naturally gifted, but I'm sorry you're not just the same. :lol:

IcyBrian may be packed with mannerless jerks (judging from reactions to my mentioning IB at VGMCentral, a lot of people feel this way), but you're (maggiekarp) pretty nice.

True that...The very short time I spent there got me chewed out for actually contributing to old threads of theirs...I don't mind being told that I'm necromancing, but if I'm actually adding something? wtf, get over it & let's discuss something other than what's actually spam when you point out that something is amiss with someone's post in a post...So, as always, thanks to the Thread Necromancy Is Perfectly Okay thread here at the Compendium. Oh, and as far as I can tell maggiekarp is pretty cool too.

To those who expressed annoyance at me quoting, I normally only quote what is relevant to what I'm gonna post, or I don't quote at all. How's that for improvement?

I don't think this is something you need to apologize for necessarily...Just...post better? Not everyone started out on forums knowing the perfect etiquette for posting or anything. We all make mistakes & just strive for our best in the future, yeah?

Apologies to V_Translanka for being such a thorn in his side when I started posting here up until about this summer, I was an annoying little bastard.

Same for this. You got better, so no apologies necessary.

I'd like to apologize to myself for apparently becoming the forums' mother hen...wtf is up with that, self? You'd better get me drunk sometime later & have your way with me...uh, er, anyways...I'm such a nit-picky a-hole sometimes, so apologies all around for anyone who felt ostracized or overly criticized or inadvertently circumcised (I swear that last one wasn't my fault).

Open & close with a joke...aren't I great?

That's comforting. You should hang out on the ECA forums (http://forums.theeca.com/index.php?). Good GOD, that place was annoying. Some of the people that are there I know on GamePolitics (http://www.gamepolitics.com/) as well. They can be nice, but holy CRAP are some of those people anal about some stuff.

Sorry to MsBlack for not ever talking to you on mutually good terms.

Sorry to the Compendium for not working as hard as I could to contribute to projects in the past and present.

And sorry to anyone else for any offensive or otherwise distasteful behavior I may have donned in the past.

1. I apologize for writing long posts. Perhaps a small issue most of the time, but when I spend 750 words conveying a simple concept... well that is bad form. Though, I suspect that people I would have offended the most probably wouldn't have bothered reading all the hot air...

2. I apologize if I've ever come off as an annoying prick who thinks he knows more than he really does (and as a corollary, someone who thinks he's smarter than he is). I tend to be too enamored with my own thoughts sometime.

3. I apologize if it has ever seemed like I do not take you or your ideas seriously (this being a general "you"). See #2

4. I apologize to Zeality. I'm pretty sure I pissed him off the first (and the last) time we ever really talked to each other.

5. I apologize for being lazy. This is a general category, a catch-all if you will. It includes not responding to people's comments, dropping conversations because I'm tired of them, not responding to PMs (or not responding in a timely manner), not completing projects that I said I would (though on the bright side, since I waited long enough the Fall of Guardia and the Rise of Porre is largely obsolete), and in general not working harder to forward the standard of Chronodom.

6. I apologize for using "Chrono" as a prefix to any and everything. Chronoverse, Chronodom, etc.

7. I apologize to anyone who deserves an apology and who I have forgotten. Also, I apologize for forgetting you.

8. I apologize for being a hypocrite. See #1

EDIT: Oh, #9 I apologize for bad jokes, wordplays, obscure references, etc. I'm generally the only one who gets them.

#10 I apologize for laughing at my own jokes.

Oh wait.  I do have something to apologize for: I am sorry that when I first joined I sometimes got off (sometimes = quite a bit) track in the Analysis forums, much to the dislike to V_Translanka.  On another note, thanks V for showing me the ropes of forum etiquette!

I apologize to Schala and Tact and everybody else for having simply abandoned the RPG boards a long time ago and awkwardly never come back for being too ashamed of my own attitudes.

I also apologize for knowing I'm guilty for that, but not really regretting it. Actually, it's not only that guilt I don't regret, but almost all others in my mind. Probably a personality issue I gotta overcome... or not...

Oh, yes, I apologize for not having contributed to the Chrono Community as a whole as much as I could, or as I feel I should.

I apologize for using a sig that might seem too big to someone. Because, in fact, I feel like it's a little too large for a sig. But then I see the crazy foaming guy there, with all his mighty foaminess in his foamy existence, and I just can't get detached from it.

I apologize for writing stuff that are generally of no interest to anyone else, but make me better for writing it in some weird way, while making my texts unnecessarily bigger.

Finally, I apologize to Mr. Translanka for not yet having read his fanfiction, Magness (or another strange name), after saying I would, another long time ago.

... Hey, that was good. Feeling much better now. I guess I can move on with my life once again.

Post by: Zipp Dementia on December 14, 2008, 03:12:12 am
Wow, Faust... sorry for getting worked up about the Dalton reveal.  Finally saw it in the Dimensional Vortex today, and it was so underwhelming that I had to stifle a yawn.  What a boring way to resolve Gaurdia's fate.  You're absolutely right.  There's no reason to care about it.

That said... here be SPOILERS

 :wink:


This be the kind of stupid crap that you should just write off a PM for instead of creating a whole thread for...Luckily for you, though there was this whole thread dedicated to what you were doing! It's a Compendium miracle!

Actually, I was more using it as an excuse to start discussion on how stupid the Dalton throw in was, but whatever.  Of course, a private message would also sort've defeat the purpose of a PUBLIC apology, but I'm too tired to really delve into semantics.

Of course, had I KNOWN there was a thread for this, I might've posted there in the first place.  No need to go swearing at me.

Actually, I was more using it as an excuse to start discussion on how stupid the Dalton throw in was, but whatever.  Of course, a private message would also sort've defeat the purpose of a PUBLIC apology, but I'm too tired to really delve into semantics.

Of course, had I KNOWN there was a thread for this, I might've posted there in the first place.  No need to go swearing at me.

Apologies don't really need to be public, unless you're trying to say something other than an apology, it's usually a private matter...If you wanted to make a topic about something else, you should've, y'know...made a topic...that was about something else...

And, uh...what swear? I sometimes choose to or not to self-censor myself here, but...it looks like I didn't even need to in that quote...>_>

IMO, censors are over-rated. The parents have to learn that the kids are gonna learn that part of the vocabulary sooner or later. As for the incarnations of censors (people who blow a gasket when someone says "crap" for example), I can only say this:

Nunya bizness. Btw, you're not really respected around here so it's obvious why you wouldn't be privy to such information. But, since I'm in a good mood, it was nothing more than a bad idea that almost got the Compendium in trouble. The issue has been resolved, so there's really nothing more to it.

Apologies to olxlinc for outing him as Shadow D. Darkman. I think everyone deserves a second chance, but I seriously figured he wanted people to know, what with the whole "I lost my memory yesterday" and "Man, that Shadow guy sure sounded like a douche" - paraphrasing on my behalf.

And, for a purely out into the universe apology, I'm gonna say sorry to my mom for maybe being more of a douche than I should be to you. I just genuinely don't like you as a person, sorry. You are a good mother, I guess. >_>

Post by: Truthordeal on October 08, 2009, 11:42:18 pm
I understand, Shee. *ahem*

*pulls list out from pocket*

1) I'm sorry for being here only 5 months and dragging the Compendium and various threads in it, down into a lot of bullshit and drama over the sake of my ego on countless occasions.

2) I'm sorry to Lord J for being an intellectual pain-in-the-ass. I have tried to reform my academic attitude since starting here, but in some instances my temper has gotten the best of me.

3) I'm sorry to everyone who actively contributed to the Fuck Sexism thread fro being an ignorant dumbass.

4) I'm sorry to Square Enix for sending so many terrible letters and emails to you in the wake of the CE C&D. I'm sure Wada's mother is a beautiful, respectable woman who is well loved by her community. Yes I did feel it was relevant to slide a joke in here, because I'm just that type of person.

5) Mostly though, I'm sorry that I have so many posts and pretty much nothing to show for it outside of a few comments in the Analysis section and a video I made on copyright that one member of the CE team seemed to enjoy. I feel like I ended up spamming a lot of nonsense that inflated that number unfairly. I was just very bored this Summer. Plus, there's that stuff that relates to numbers 1-3. Probably 4 to some extent too.

In any event, sorry for not contributing as much as I should be.
Title: Re: Official Apologies Thread (For Anyone)
Post by: Lord J Esq on October 09, 2009, 01:20:57 am
I don't think he was talking to you. Truthordeal. Worry not.

I don't know what to make of you. Sometimes you show a nascent interest in learning. Other times you are the most maddening conserva-drone. Good luck at college, I say. Maybe it'll open your eyes as to the importance of independent thinking. But I suppose the apologies thread is not a good place for lecturing. Your apology to me is gracious; thank you.

For my part, I apologize to ZeaLitY, for not being more helpful with the Compendium, to Thought for not being a more reliable correspondent, to Daniel Krispin for excessive hostility in years past, to FaustWolf for not living up to his excellent example of community stewardship, to Uboa for assuming she was male for all those months, and to Truthordeal for never relenting. Everyone deserves at least a moment of reprieve.

Most of all I apologize to Sajainta, because sometimes I treat people differently if they have an emotional or mental handicap, and you have a pretty big one in the form of the emotional distress from your deplorable past. My interpersonal skills are not the best, and I very much want to avoid unwittingly upsetting you. My intentions are good, but I don't think anyone can truly enjoy being treated differently. I will get better as I get to know you better. For now, I hope you know you are among friends here!
Title: Re: Official Apologies Thread (For Anyone)
Post by: Sajainta on October 09, 2009, 03:07:26 am
First of all, this is a great thread.  It takes a lot of chutzpah to apologize to someone.  Very commendable, all of you.

I want to apologize to the Compendium for not being active on the Analysis board.  I've read through a lot of the threads, but it seems as though anything I would have to offer has already been said.  I should have joined this place years ago, I guess.  :P

Lord J--I sent you a PM.  But I do want to say publicly that there is no reason for you to apologize.  :)

And for anyone else reading this--I've never felt any sense of being treated differently because of my past.  And I definitely know that I am among friends.  This site is truly wonderful, and much thanks to all of you for making this place so much fun, so hilarious, and so intellectually stimulating all at the same time.  Thank you!  :D

Post by: Uboa on October 09, 2009, 10:33:41 am
I did not know that this thread existed!  I've had something for which I've wanted to apologize for quite some time, but did not know of an appropriate context in which to address it.

To everybody on the CE team, when news of the C&D hit I asked Zephira for a copy of the CE beta.  (I am not sure if anybody besides Zephira knows about this...)  While I justify my actions to myself as actions done out of anger (mostly stemming from the fact that all of Kajar labs was also now gone), I know that this does not justify my seeking a copy of the beta against the developers' wills.  So, I now offer my long overdue apology:  I am very sorry for that action in the beginning of my posting here.


In reply to J:  When I decided to use the handle Uboa, I did so expecting to be thought of as a male poster unless I explicitly said otherwise.  So, no worries.   :P

im sorry that im constantly freaked the fuck out by girl problems. i know there isnt really nothing technically gross about it (its totally natural) but dammit it still freaks me out to know that my girlfriend is bleeding profusely while i make out with her and i cant do a goddamn thing about it.

im sorry that i cant let go of the past.
im sorry i cant really look forward into the future.
im sorry that im not in school.
im sorry for myself and i shouldnt be. its my own fault not anyone elses that im not in school yet, that i cant let go of the past, that i cant bring myself to look to the future with any kind of hope.

im also sorry that i stole that watch in ninth grade.
im not sorry, though, that it was of decent quality.

Hmm...an interesting thread........

I am compelled....urged....

I must ask for forgiveness for many things. I shall create a list. Here, as of now.

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

I am sorry for the rudeness I portrayed to a young man who insulted me. It was not my honor to do so.
I am sorry for the anger I portrayed to my family during small moments of meaningless frustration.
I am sorry to my family for the frustration I have caused them.
I am sorry for my dishonor of the people around me, acting on how those expect me to act in certain situations.
I am sorry for my dishonor of the ways of education. I should appreciate that more than I do.
I am sorry for my dishonor of my dreams. I always seem to bring them down in some way.
I am sorry for giving up. I will continue to strive.
I am sorry for dishonoring my family.
I am sorry for never really being myself.

There are more, but I'd rather keep them to myself.

Post by: ONSLAUGHT on October 09, 2009, 10:47:05 pm
I'm posting now, so I can help remind myself... I got to do some serious thinking... I can't even think where to begin.

Um, not all of these may seem like they're true, but here I'm able to be happier and a much better person.

1.) I'm sorry for being such an angry person. Wanting to go to life or death extremes over a small argument, something I need to work on.
2.) I apologize for my extreme laziness, always looking to take the quick way out if I'm not interested in it. (this is one after Crimson Echoes, I actually have extremely improved upon though)
3.) I am sorry for always having to explain every little detail of a situation. I'm fully aware that many don't have that kind of attention span, force of habit.
4.) I am sorry for seeking revenge on someone and skipping out on a grand portion of my life with the intent of mentally destroying them.
5.) I am truly sorry for often not telling all the truth, only some and leaving out the rest. I know people want to hear more but I have another force of habit where I almost militaristically only deliver what's in the orders.
6.) I'm sorry for not putting more effort into the support of the Compendium. I notice everyone seems to have some sort of thing here to strongly contribute, but I've just been a random poster of hit and miss witty comments throughout.
7.) I'm sorry for going on and on with letting out my depression in public often. Even though I have a grand amount built up from my whole life, I shouldn't drag it out on others. That along with my other problems, that's what therapy's for. (just can't afford it or a punching bag at the moment, had one before and that really helped but brother took it back).
8.) I apologize for never having acted my age in my life. The younger I was the more mature I acted and I've grown more childlike as time goes on(I didn't start speaking until I knew complete sentences and could recite just about any word in the dictionary...)
9.) I'm sorry for having a looooong list altogether!

I have more, but as 7 already states, I'm not proud of the fact often I let out a grand load of my depression where it isn't necessary.

I am sorry for being so lazy and posted short post.
I am sorry for not contributing most of my ideas and theories for the above reason.
I apologize to my mum for all the trouble and embarrassment I made her go through when I was on primary.
I am sorry for teasing that girl who sill ignores my feelings due to the fact taht she is in love with a Dragon Age character and a Mass Effect one. (I mean literally)
I am sorry for all the people I make fun of.
I am sorry for my terrible grammar... XD
I am sorry for being sorry for everything I did.

But I must admit if i haven't done any of this I wouldn't be the same.

I'm sorry if anyone's taken offense because of anything I've said here. I like to hide behind humor, and sometimes that makes me inconsiderate of others' feelings. It's a selfish bad habit.

I'm also sorry for any emotional posts I throw on here. This is not twitter or facebook, but I see it as a bit more selective version of social networking. Rather than just having the internet in common, we all were drawn here for a love of the Chrono. I feel like I can relate to most of the people here and lately when I've felt in shambles I've come here to rant and seek solace.

If anything I feel very at home here. Other than Google, Hulu, and my band's myspace, this is really the only site I check regularly. So, sorry Z for the bandwidth...? :lol:

- I'm sorry for not sending in more additions to the CT screenplay.  I gotta get to work.
- I'm sorry for sounding like some radical ignoramus in the debate forums in my earlier days.
- I'm really, really sorry for any bridges I may have burned as a result of the above.

Originally, I was going to delete the post I made earlier in the Frustrations thread, but I figured that'd be a dishonest way to deal with the situation.

I would like to apologize to Zeality for the post I made. It was immature and rash, but mostly stupid. I have no idea what in your previous post irked me to the point where I felt the need to call you a douchebag, or even if it was solely your post or the combination of outside stressors. Lord only knows, either way, I apologize.

Apologies for anyone...

Well, I want to apologize to Miss Baker. It was my ineptitude to properly converse with you that lead to us not being friends. I am so sorry that I waited until the final exam of the Spring 2010 semester to say something to you. I noticed you every day, but I was not strong enough to move my tongue to build up any form of courage to speak my mind.

We had many things in common, but it was obviously not meant to be...

I am so sorry I came off the wrong way. I apologize. Please forgive me...

I offer my humble apologies to ZeaLitY who got caught in a crossfire of anger, where I may have unintentionally hurt your feelings. If I have, I'm sorry. Also to note, besides the "culture" factor, I would like to point out that you weren't wrong in regards to your views towards gender equality (in fact, it's pretty inspiring), but your superficial generalization was what drove a nail to provoke my anger further. Again, that wasn't your fault either, because I wasn't given the time to explain the philosophy I was trying to defend (I waived and ignored my personal views, but defended ones that remained where I live) and thus you wouldn't know what I was talking about; then again, nobody was interested in knowing in the first place.

Just a note though: Chivalry isn't necessarily bad in any light. If you loved someone you would protect them, but ignoring danger is actually a greater sin.



Also, Lord J, as much as you deserved my resentment I do understand you've been going through some rough times, thus the minor, personal amusements. I also noticed your considerate short reply when I mentioned it took me two hours to type the previous posts. So yeah, thank you. And forgiven.

I was not aware that I have been going through "rough times," tush. Nor would that be a satisfactory reason for you to change your stance toward me. I do hope that you can relieve yourself of your displeasure with me for reasons more relevant to your original upset.

That said, I won't accept your apology as it stands because it does not address any of the wrongs you have done--nor do I ask, expect, or desire any apology from you, because those wrongs are trivial and quite in line with human nature. I have no hard feelings toward you, just a mild annoyance that I do not have the time and patience to address your objectionable statements more fully and more quickly.

Oh. Sorry, someone told me you might have. @_@" And... my inconsiderate retort made me feel like an asshole, so yeah. Also, pointing the emphasis to your quote, "satisfactory" doesn't matter here; just because you pissed someone off doesn't mean that person has to hate you for life. Hell no! Stuff happens and moods change.

Don't flatter yourself. xDDD I'm not apologizing to you. I forgive you! :lol:

My eProject is finally here. This means, Tushantin says bye for now (not strictly "bye" just like that; I'll still be around, but not actively). I won't be able to participate in bigger debates like we usually do (frustrations are usually fun), but I will drop by from time to time. If you wanna reach me, either hit me a PM or leave a message to my SoY thread. While I had so much to say I kinda forgot a lot of it, and knowing that "so much" stuff would still be confusing as hell as they usually are, I decided I just can't leave without making everyone miserable.

I'm sorry. I'm so sorry!

This is for RushinWind and Syna for their love for culture, humanity and philosophy, utunnels for his intrigue towards fun Ghibli-style films, Lennis for his mark of superior sentiments and authorship, MrBekkler for his love for the obscure (I think), FaustWolf for his love for art, music and captivating stories, Thought for his curiosity towards human nature, and Lord J Esq because HELL YEAH! And Anyone else I may not have named but are also curious and interested: Love for anime isn't a requirement, but appreciation for subtlety, art, poetic and literary depth is. I present to you...

...On second thought, I'm not going to describe it for you. Watch it and you'll find out why.

Note: The following two episodes are stand-alone and do not require you to watch the entire series. Simply click the link.

1) The Land of Books - (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sLUsnZ6Ja2c) My most favorite by far, offering a variety of interpretations of reality. There is a lot one can pick from this. To FaustWolf, Thought and Boo, there's a concept used here, albeit with an ingenious twist -- "The Entity Did It". Remember? XD

2) Love and Bullets - (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B9pW9Q63kiQ) This one is something ZeaLitY might be interested in, as it contains an insight to his pondering back at the "If You Ruled The World" thread. It also contains the philosophies of the old True Blue dilemma, absolution, ideals and the Observer Effect.

Hope you find them interesting; I share this with you folks is because I thought you might find these useful and insightful for the journey you've embarked on, while at the same time it's also a way of apology since I owe you guys a lot of responses (Syna and Saj inquired on the relevance of homosexuality and "choice", and other similar posts I've been planning to write), but would be missing out on the action for a while.

Thus, sincerely, sorry. And see you soon! Have a lotta fun without me, because when I return I can't guarantee what I'll be up to!  :D

Well to the apologies, I apologize to everyone I ever done harm to. I don't remember if I ever did anything wrong here. Aside from something I already apologized for.
Well I do apologize to a friend of mine she probably won't read this (unless she stalks me)...

Now that the "Kinks to Work Out" thread has seemingly run its course, I have an apology to make to the entire community. I have been abrasive, either needlessly so or without enough specificity. I have pursued my goals with means that were not always conducive to achieving them in the best form. And this is true not only of that one particular thread, but of my appearances in the Compendium in general. It isn't to say that I have been a bad influence, but I know I have been a difficult one to many of you.

I can't possibly offer specific apologies to everyone, but I will single out a few of the likely readers of this post who most deserve my apologies:

@tushantin:
I am sorry for humiliating you, especially in a time when your life is filled with other difficulties. I hope that, if pressed to it, you will choose simply to ignore me rather than avoid the Compendium, and if you ask me I will give you a wide berth.

@Thought:
I don't know that I have presented any actual burden to you, but your noble efforts at ambassadoring my piquant stylizations are most appreciated. So, really, it's a thank you.

@Sajainta:
I expect that threads like "Kinks to Work Out" make you uncomfortable with the thought of interacting with me or even being around to read the exchanges. I'm sorry for that. Even though I know, from your comments here and on Facebook and elsewhere, that we are of a like mind on many topics, I understand how difficult it can be to give aggressive people the benefit of the doubt. What we know so well of the contents of our own minds, is very difficult to recognize in the minds of others. Typically I would assure someone at this point that I am one of the forces for good, but in your view of the world I know how unreliable such a thing would sound. I only hope you will continue to be willing to put up with me here and elsewhere. If not, it will be my biggest disappointment of all this.

@rushingwind:
I've put you through a lot that you didn't need to go through. Please accept my vow that your advice and perspective are always appreciated. Don't get flustered. Get...EVEN!!! And good luck at University!

@FaustWolf:
Ever outwardly calm, I have no idea if I have ever offended you. If I have, I regret it. I may not be able to retract whatever statements caused the offense, but I have considerable respect for you.

@Mr Bekkler:
We already squared things in PM, but you deserve my public apology for your emotional distress. I apologize for that. You are an example of my need to be more considerate of the side effects of my confrontational tactics.

@Syna:
I am sorry that my postings during your time here do not exactly lend themselves to a curiosity about me that, in another time and place, you would no doubt possess. You are a curious figure yourself, and I hope we can have substantive conversations in the future.

@Ramsus:
I'm sorry you're a jerk.
Actually, I'm sorry I haven't gotten to know you better in all this time. Unfortunately, friendships don't always take root when, had circumstances been slightly different, they easily could have. At least with you I needn't worry about sentimentalism. You're a good forum administrator, and that's the least of it.

And my apologies to all those whom time forgot!!!

Public apologies are cathartic! Every one of mine is sincere. I do not ask you accept or acknowledge them. Sincere apologies are given without the expectation of reward.

But I am in the mood to give rewards, so stay tuned for an upcoming thread...!

"Chaata maarna asaan hai; maafi mangne ke liye himmat chaahiye, beta. Ye kayeron ka naam nahi hai." (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQ-QGNm8y9U)

Translation:
"It's pretty easy to slap someone, but it takes immense strength to apologize, son. It's not a job fit for cowards."

I'm sorry for being such an asshole to you, but I simply felt the need to show you a mirror simply because of you evading those... eh, nevermind, these criticisms should be limited. But you wanted to antagonize, and thus I provided you with an annoying, yet equally rational, antagonist. Still, sorry if I gave you such a hard time. Though, I feel honored that you felt you deserved these hard times.

As for your apology, all's fine -- except, even if I forgive I wouldn't really forget. Even though I am usually offended by insults targeted at me (not too much, though, since I take them constructively), I'm more likely to get annoyed if these insults are targeted towards people who don't deserve it (such as RHE in the other thread), especially when these accusations are misplaced and even if I don't know them. I defended ZeaLitY at OCR forums last time from petty insults towards his character, I defended the CE team from weird, humiliating rumors in other places, I defended an MSN friend in dA forums simply because a troll wanted to get her banned, I defended Bekkler and religious folks from you, and I defended several of my friends in real life too from several situations. Perhaps because I might have a complex of getting irritated with the unnecessary "noise" in the world, but I just can't watch an undeserving person suffer at the hands of mooks. You as well as I stand for the best of humanity, so let us keep that spirit up high. We don't wish to undermine anyone needlessly, especially an ally.

And as for "giving me a wide berth", there's no probs, mate. This is the internet, after all, and even if I didn't care about you, your thoughts or your position I would have either undermined your social position in the forum to that of a "Troll" or simply give you a "F-You" and got back to my work, so don't worry about giving me any wide berth; just be honest, but not too offensive, and if you have to criticize then justify your claims. The reason I pay attention is because I look up to you as a fellow individual and friend with noble dreams and varied excellence (and you're awesome: you already know that), and I'm also concerned with the "direction" you're most likely headed (although, I'm not the best person to explain that perhaps), which is why my responses are sincere, time-consuming and never half-assed. I respect you, but I also hope that you respect other people similarly and not see them as "mooks", because chances are they see you the same way. People have their own reason to act or think the way they do or, no matter how different or familiar it might seem, and there's always depth of character; don't just point at someone and say, "Ooh, she's portraying sexism, that bitch!" It's just... wrong!

I also realize that your lengthy replies are because you care (and ignoring my questions would probably mean you don't care, but eh...), so... ice cream? There's a good chance you don't give a damn about this post of mine but... Ah well, forgiveness is ours to give. Anywhos, forgiven!  :D

Thank you for the apology.
I'm sorry it became a big deal, but glad everybody gets to learn something out of it. And I'm glad you appear to have taken in more from the thread than initially stated. I will remain efficiently witty, but when necessary I will try to balance it with appropriate clarity.

Josh, you may give yourself an apology if your posts haven't met your own high standards, and to whoever else deserves them, but I don't need one! This forum has provided me with some very powerful and challenging discussions since I began posting in earnest, and you get a lion's share of the credit for that.

I'd venture to make the observation that we are both curious people, in addition to being, well, rather ridiculously idiosyncratic. I look forward to the conversations myself. :D

To the general population, I don't necessarily feel the need to apologize for this, but I do feel grateful for the fact that most of you seem to take my sometimes overbearing and silly enthusiasm in stride.

P.S. Tush, a) have a weakness for terrible puns and b) have watched a lot of SpongeBob in my time (thanks to my middle-school-grade littlest brother). So uh, I've spent about a minute laughing at that picture. I AM NOT ASHAMED

'Twas the damsel with piercing gaze,
With hair pink as lotus ablaze;
Resolve woven of iron reform,
But her delicate heart encased a storm.


Sajainta...
(http://i.imgur.com/RkH4n.jpg)

Saj, I had no idea that my writing would hurt you this greatly, and if such analyses do then they are seldom worth it. At the same time, my poetic mood distracted me from explaining fully. I'm a believer that we ought to understand our enemies so we can predict their movements, and thus ultimately help cease more Jeffs from taking place. Perhaps, if you can imagine Tom Riddle growing up to be a white-robed Voldemort who swore to protect Hogwarts from the might of Hitler, I think you know what I'm getting it. I want to believe such dreams aren't impossible; I've seen many potential assholes grow to become great people, and I'm proud to save at least one such individual from taking to the path of human corruption. I know there's no hope for Jeff -- that pretentious bastard deserves to die like a dog -- but there's just so many people we can still save, so much talent we can still salvage. Why? Because more than anything, humanity needs people who think differently.

I was an asshole for using the wording I did. I understand now that that was incredibly insensitive. I never intended to hurt your feelings, nor wish any ill of you. I know it might be difficult for you to forgive me, and perhaps I deserve such apathy, but more than anything I care about you. I care that disruptive elements in nature make you cry. I care when people's dreams shatter before my eyes. I care, because I can feel a thousand cries of mercy from around the globe, that their clock has stopped ticking, that their hopes are lost in endless horizons, and that I feel helpless to do anything about it. I despise being this helpless, but I know that if I at least save one person at a time then the world will be a better place. My weapon is my pen, and my armor is love, and more than anything I need your help in fulfilling that dream.

If you've something to say right now then you can count on me to take it to heart, if it makes you feel better. I'm sorry. I'm incredibly sorry. >< If it's any comfort, I've currently begun refining my communication skills and learning tact, although I have no idea where to begin. I'm doing my best, so my idiocy does not repeat itself. I will also keep my distance from the Violence thread, because, to everyone's agreement, I'm certainly no expert in these matters.


And while I'm at it, I'm apologize to FaustWolf and Syna for detracting them from their work. I apologize to anyone else I may have wronged. I'm sorry for destroying yet another amusing thread. And thank you, Boo, for sticking up for me; it's a comfort knowing someone understands my intentions.

And to Lord J Esq: Just to clarify about the Thread for Writers incident, I was mad at you for disrespecting my actions, as the character that was based on you was not intended to mock you. It was intended to honor you; it was intended as respect, and if you didn't like the idea you could have said so and I'd gladly remove the reference.

I always screamed at the top of my lungs that I was a mook and I was proud; this is probably the first time that being a mook has ashamed me so much compared to being rational (which was always regretful), but you're right on me being foolhardy. Also, you could have called me out and had me banned outright, but you didn't; so in that spirit, thank you. I thus vow that this fool shall now abandon his joker hat.

I appreciate your apology.  I'm not going to touch upon the parts of this post that I take issue with, because this entire thing has left me emotionally exhausted and I really don't want to continue.  And I would have never asked for you to be banned or punished.  You expressed an opinion.  That, to me, is not an offense that warrants being banned.

My opinion was meant to be a psychoanalytical satire taken from conceptual perspective, and nothing more. I have no qualms on being banned, but I am concerned about about your feelings. I'm sorry for causing you such distress.  :(
