NSFW FPP.

1. Please delete my FPP. Unbeknownst to me, the link contains NSFW ads. 2. Even after filling out the captcha on the contact admins page, I get "Couldn't send your message. Please go back and make sure you fill out the captcha before you send your message." [more inside]

Please accept my apology

Back in January, I posted a pretty offensive thread. I'm not sure if this is appropriate for MetaTalk, but I would like to apologize for it. I was in a bad place at the time, and hope that anyone who was offended will forgive me for this indiscretion.

Gospel God-Damned Truth!

I just wanted to call myself out. As Mark Twain said there are Liars and Damned Liars. And then there is me. Some where in between. I just wanted everybody to not go after Granted for calling me out. Granted it's ok. It was only a matter of time. But I want to assure you, and he, that the "essence" of my stories are indeed true and where they are not "truth" let that not interfere with your enjoyment of them. Even IF said enjoyment is directly proportional to mocking me. Which I not only deserve but enjoy. The question is is THIS the right venue for these sotries? Perhaps we need a "Stories" section. Robocop is Bleeding would have a much deserved creative outlet. And there would be place for my Damnable Lies. Wouldn't THAT be awesome! Anyway. Those of you that wish verification from here on out I will try to create some mechanism for that where I can. Where it won't ruin the point of the story. But I warn you... if, like me, your high is derived from being cynical you may be disappointed in the dull sobriety of the exercise.

Pork stamp - NOT

Mea Culpa. Remember my sweet-and-sour pork stamp post? Well, as it turns out, it's not true. Oh, there is a stamp (cute design), and it is popular, but it's not scratch-and-sniff, or tasty (see comment #7). Sorry gang. P. S. Not a "bug", but that's the closest Category that came to mind... P. P. S. I had a friend of mine ask her relatives to send her a sheet/book of these stamps. I just have to know for myself.

I'd like to make amends

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.

It could've been better

I think I bungled an FPP.

I was inconsiderate.

Just want to apologize for the poor wording on my post today linking to this article. My mistake was terribly ill-advised wording in my fpp. Sorry to have offended, and I understand why it was offensive and why the fpp was deleted.

is there any way one can delete a thread one posted?

is there any way one can delete a thread one posted? i am the idiot behind the daniel pearl video rationalization thread that's clogging up the front page and had i realised the page i linked to included screen grabs i would have marked it as such. i shouldn't have linked to it anyway and i would really like to end my own embarrassment by taking it down.

Was I trolling?

Was I trolling? I had an admittedly heated reaction to an issue I care about, and blasted "conservatives/republicans/the right" as a group. But was I way outta line?

To all annoyed and even offended by certain posts of mine...

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.

Me and my sockpuppets were being jerks

I, Free Speech aka Rightwinger aka Private Parts, was just having some fun and trying to add some levity to the site, sorry if I offended you Matt.

Didn't mean to bring out the racism in everyone...

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.

I plead "supidity"?

Open Letter to Mr. Zeldman, Mr. Davis & Mr. Haughey:
Well, guys, what can I say...I plead "supidity"?

I recently contributed to turning a thread, which I'm sure was intended for all well-wishers to Glenn Davis their fondest thoughts... into my soapbox about how sites shouldn't be judged, and contributed to the silliness. For that I'm deeply ashamed. [More groveling inside...]
