I just wanted to make a thread to apologize to all the people I said confrontational shit to. I know this is the internet and I don't really know anybody personally, but I still feel like shit when I get into altercations with people because I am generally a really peaceful person. So mainly I apologize to HG. I said some nasty and evil things to you and I am sorry for that. To Geno: I am sorry for calling you a tool. I was pissed because I was fed up with being called out so much. I am sorry. You seem like a really nice and awesome person.
I am not doing this as an attempt to fit in on this board or anything. That would be stupid. It’s not my personal goal to "fit in" in cyber space. I am not that desperate for company. I think I got off on the wrong foot because when I made my first post on this board I didn't understand the personalities or landscape of the board. I didn't have any idea what I was stepping into. So I took everything personally because I wasn't used to all the different jokes, personalities, and humor. I felt like I was being attacked and my pride stepped in the way of my rationality. I apologize. You all seem like really awesome people with a lot of great music knowledge and that always makes for good company.

Apologies accepted. I did the same thing once upon a time. Hating is over. But don't get uptight if I use some of the funnier things you've said as a meme, hancho - the high corn chips thing in particular is irresistible.
Yeah. I don't have any beef with Hancho because I have never been in an argument with him but I was trying to be sincere and it kind of ruins the whole process if someone jumps on my apology train like its an open boxcar for hobos.

Look man, I did the same thing when I was new to this board. Ask anyone, I was... well, pretty much the same as I am now, but I was the new guy and I was really confrontational and disresepectful. People tried to run me off too. It takes a balance, and it takes not being the new guy. You're alright and you're obviously getting a feel for this place. Honestly it took longer for drew to chill out than it took you, so don't beat yourself up about it.
Hancho's a good counterpoint for you; that guy really is... Well, my thoughts on hancho are in the Barbs thread. Suffice to say, hancho, I do not accept your apology. Switch, we're cool. You're the only other person I know who has read The Circus of the Earth and the Air. Thanks for being cool.
