It has been weighing on me heavily, this last debate I was a part of here, in regards to the thread about the footer at Agnostic.com and how it misrepresents Agnostics, like myself.
I said some rather nasty things to a few people here after I felt I was cornered and badgered to the pissed off point. This is not how I like to become. It isn't an accurate representation of me, as a person, on a whole, and some evidence to prove that point could even be this posting in and of itself.
I feel guilty for having lost my cool. I was disappointed in myself that I allowed my own emotions to get the better of me. I lost my self control and I regret that. I feel terrible for the things I said to a couple of people, even if I was irritated and flustered, it was still uncalled for. I know better. I expect More of myself because I Know I'm better than that.
So if I did offend Anyone, I would like to say Publicly, here and now, that I am profusely sorry for my behaviour and it will never happen again.
I might tease people in a playful manner or I may be sarcastic, but that's just me being funny. I enjoy dry humor and self deprecating humor and I practice in that particular art frequently, but I Never Ever wish to Honestly hurt others. That's the Last Thing I would wish to do. I am not hostile person by nature. I'm actually a big softie, to be honest. I could be a pushover if I weren't intelligent, but often times apathy gets the better of me, as does compassion.
I truly have felt badly over all of this. I felt the best way to deal with it would be to address it head on and to apologize because it's warranted. I felt it necessary, for myself, because I did something inappropriate, wrong. I'm Never too proud to take responsibility for my own unsavory behaviour and to give a heart felt apology. I made a mistake.
I hope in the future we can continue to have Healthy discourse and that, together, as a community, we can grow, rather than self destruct. I promise to do my best to always remain a Positive member at this site and not a bully dickhead. It was Never my intension.
That's it. -Ari
