Hey, I'm new to MetaTalk, so go easy on me, and I hope this hasn't been talked about before, but... [more inside]

A personal request: If you think the formatting or content of your post needs defending (newsfilter and single-link youtube posts seem to be the prime offenders here), make your justifications in the first reply to the thread instead of pointing it out in the FPP itself.

Feature request: apologies for intemperate things said in the heat of the moment or drunkenness... or both. I wrote some shit to b_thinky
last night that I regret. No email address was listed in his (or her) profile, otherwise I would have reached out that way. But I made a vow to robocop is bleeding
a while back about just this kind of thing, and broke my promise, and I'd like to make amends.

This has gone on long enough.
I'm going to take a radical step and drag myself into MetaTalk. Once upon a time skallas was a guy, whom while I disagreed with him often, I respected his intelligence and convictions. But somewhere things got weird and no we're at eachother's throats all the time. It's making this unpleasant for me, probably for him and probably for everybody reading too. So, it's gotta stop.
I could have taken it to e-mail, but I'm doing it publicly for a couple of reasons. One, I think if the both of us (two well known public fueders) can cool out and agree to disagree like gentlemen, we can set an example for the rest of the site. And also, because someone once said that I owed skallas an apology as public as the insult I made, so here it is.
So, skallas, I'm willing to bury the hatchet if you are. You with me?

I recently posted a link
, and in it I happened to slip a 1x1 px graphic that is used by this site
to create a map of internet users. Seemed harmless enough, but in retrospect I regret having done it. It was an action of questionable ethics, and I should have avoided it. Please nix my post and accept my apologies.

Sorry if this is a double post but the search timed out -- why do some members applogise in their front page comment for possible double posting because the search timed out, especially before they've actually got to the point of the actual post in the first place? (more)

Apologies to all annoyed and even offended by certain posts of mine which, apparently, have been too ripe for certain people to take into the realm of bad taste. The filter on that kind of thing has been turned up.

I want to apologize for any part I had in prompting the explicitly racist comments some have posted in this thread
and others, if there were any. I'm beginning to wonder whether I should continue advancing my perspective in light of reactions like this. I don't want to encourage those kinds of posts.
