This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Apology
« on: January 04, 2007, 09:07:14 pm »
I just wanted to apologise for my descent into excessive rudeness in the ‘atheism’ thread around pp. 13-17 (or thereabouts).  I became quite insulting towards some of you (as well as somewhat incoherent), and that was grossly inappropriate.  I’m not going to list all the folks to whom I specifically owe an apology, as I would likely miss some, so just assume that this proclamation of ‘sorry’ extends to you.  
:imsorry:

(Never again will I try to engage in an online debate after being up for 20+ hours, enduring a trans-Atlantic flight, not eating enough food, and imbibing too much Guinness …)
:flop:


(For what it is worth -- and I doubt anyone cares at this point -- the most coherent statement of my overall position, along with links to the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy and the Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy, can be found here.)

I haven't seen anything that you need to apologize for.

Hey, it's the rpgsite. If you don't get pissed and start insulting people and/or rambling incoherently at some point you're probably not doing it right. :)

Nah, that was an exaggeration. There's lots of room for calm and rational debate here, as long as you don't mind 2 - 4 people having a side argument in the midst of your conversation. And even that doesn't happen all the time. :)

I simply emulate my Lord, the One True God, who is possessed of infinite capacity to forgive; I merely emulate His example.

Your apology demonstrates a great deal of empathy, and says many positive things about your character and upbringing. However, this site is not a place for apology. It is a place for the offended (on any topic) to go fuck themselves in the ear.
The only thing I ever believed in the Bible was John 11:35.
