I'd like to make amends September 4, 2005 7:56 PM   Subscribe

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.

What feature are you requesting?

What feature are you requesting? How about amends.metafilter.com? We could post once a day...like going to confession. Forgive me mefi for I have sinned.
I do like the idea of a followup.metafilter.com for amends and ask.meta followups.

I see two ways to look at it...if I want amends (or complaints) I list my email address. They're free so I can have one just set up for Metafilter if I choose. If I don't put my address I don't need amends or complaints.

Or you could just type "sorry" in the thread.

Sorry... Feature request was meant to be tongue in cheek, not literal... I'm like... MetaSorry?

Until there is such at MetaFilter ... Not Proud. Online Confessions and/or Daily Confession.

Forgive us God, for I have sinned ... z.

buzzman; interesting. I've been guilty of drunk-dialing, drunk-e-mailing etc. I HAVE sought pro-help but, to the point, the self-flagging is a great idea. I can't wait to try it, acutally.

I thought your comment was quite amusing.

I liked that commented. I laughed then, and I laughed again today when I read it.

I agree with delmoi & cmonkey, I thought it was fuckin' hilarious. If I could do shit like 'at better I'd do it more often.
