    ...to those I offended when last I was here. For those of you who don't know, I was banned for saying that the mods of the past acted like liberal fucking Nazis. I've had time to process everything I had said during that time and I must say that that was a pretty dick move on my part. It is with this that I offer an apology to those with whom I had a conflict. I do not apologize for my own beliefs, but I do apologize for the way that I presented them, as it was extremely inappropriate to say the least. I do not expect many of you, or any of you to accept this apology and I completely understand if that is the case.

    From this point on, I would simply just like to attempt to rationally discuss various topics, be they political or not in a non-confrontational manner.

    Thank you for your time.

    Props for considering your effect on others. I wish we call could do that. And lord knows I’ve been down that same road, and got heated myself.
    At any rate, welcome back to the nerdiest, nichiest site on the interwebz!

    Know the feeling, man. I had a moment last year when I realized that me following news accounts on Twitter to keep myself informed had really just turned me into an ultra-angry, closed-minded asshole. I'm still not proud of it, and it's really embarrassing to think about how I behaved. But the important thing is that we learn and grow from it.

    Glad you're back!

    Yea, but at least it was short 140-character bursts of ultra-angry. Extremely punctuated tantrums. My dad watches FOX all day so he can do a full 8-hours+ of close-mindedness.

    I’ve blocked people who were truly stupid/insulting towards others. I don’t have you blocked. So welcome back and nice job on the personal introspection. That’s difficult for most of us.
