Hey guys, sorry I was being such a faggot on here 6 years ago (100% srs)
I don't if anybody here even remembers me anymore because I literally haven't been on in years, but basically I got into a bunch of retarded flame wars with people on this forum because I was a little suburban smartass fresh into his liberal arts degree who 'really wanted to provoke people and confront them about their ignorance' (read: give my excessively strong opinions about the world, which I did not remotely understand). Anyway, I said a bunch of dumb shit (some of which definitely crossed the lines of common decency), some people said some dumb shit back (which likewise crossed into some ridiculous territory...death threats, etc), and like all internet flame wars, nothing was accomplished but a bunch of wasted time.
Anyway, I was 19. The fuck did I know about anything? Since getting out of school with a useless degree, I've had to scratch and claw for every little scrap I've gotten on my own, and suffice to say I've learned a thing or two about living in this world, fighting to find your place in it, and trying not to be a cunt in the process. And I learned that it's important to be respectful, because alienating people is a waste of time. So, I'm back here for a moment to pay respect and apologize.
Might not see eye to eye with everybody politically here, but I don't give a fuck anymore because there's a about a million more important things for me to worry about than who voted for which self-interested millionaire. If I said something shitty to you (or anybody associated with you in the past), I'm sincerely sorry, I was being a stupid little kid. Hope everybody here has been getting by well, and if I ever find myself back in Cali, I hope anybody here could tap me on the shoulder and let me by 'em a beer in good faith.
