    Anybody who's been through marraige counselling would agree. Specific rather than vague, generalized apologies have greater integrity and meaning.

    I like the idea of this thread.

    I owe apologies to kochman, GhostWriter16, Patroklos, MobBoss. Not for the content of my posts or responses, but for the tone.

    That said, I'm eager to have more time to finally get back into the fray and start posting again :hammer:

    I apologise to Ghostwriter16 for not saying anything when you're constantly harassed in threads.

    Yep, you said nothing when they came for GW. Now we're coming from you and there's no one left to speak up! Mwhuahahaha! :mwaha:

    Yeah, I kinda feel like this. He gets a lot of ****e thrown at him; which is totally unacceptable and i'm surprised people haven't been punished for it. Obviously, GW needs to be slapped down when he turns unrelated threads into his favourite topics which is a massive faux pax against forum etiquette but even when he is on topic he gets so much abuse. I'm surprised he even comes here anymore.

    I would like to apologise to god, as I have said some fairly dismissive things about her.

    But I see no evidence for her reading this forum, so perhaps there is no point.

    However, should she reply, quoting my magic number through her omniscience, then I will truly know.

    To be fair, he doesn't get that much abuse.

    People just attack his positions.

    She reads everything you read. And she knows exactly how you feel. So don't worry.

    Are you sure you really want to know, truly? She apparently thinks you don't.

    Come on he had crap thrown at him for not apologising correctly.

    The mods may have to get involved I suppose, the last thread I looked at that he opened the first three replies were basically just saying ron paul in weird ways.

    You're living in a dreamland son.

    Firstly I'm not a son

    Secondly, I've never seen people outright insult Dommy. They just say his positions are not very good/hypocritical.

    It depends.

    I can't name names, that wouldn't be right ,but there are a LOT of people on here who have criticized my positions, sometimes even quite strongly, that I would consider to do so in a friendly and constructive manner.

    There are some who can get a little heated, but no more than I myself do, that I can't really blame them considering I do the same.

    There are a few on here that insult me fairly regularly and constantly. To those few, they know who they are (Feel free to PM me if you don't know) they absolutely do need to apologize for insulting me.

    No, there was valid criticism.

    Furthermore, I was kidding, most obviously. And even when I was kidding, I did apologize for my post. And what do I get? Crap thrown at me, as you would put it :)
    You can add my name to that list, and I don't feel a bit sorry for that. Your opinions are fair game, and it's open season on them. Your opinions are open to be attacked viciously, they are open to be ridiculed, they are open to be completely and utterly destroyed. I do this on a daily basis and I happen to think your a good guy.

    Attack the position, not the person is the rule of thumb here. You don't get to complain about that. Heat, kitchen.
