FreeThinker Posted September 19, 2012 Report Share Posted September 19, 2012 It has been pointed out to me on numerous occasions throughout my life that I tend to preach civility in an uncivil way, tolerance intolerantly, and respect disrespectfully. I am sometimes unwilling to let an issue go and turn something that isn't terribly important in the great scheme of things into a question rivaling the great issues of life and existence. I want friends and yet push them away with my stridency. I was rude in the recent Nifty thread and I am certain I offended a great many of you. I have probably done so in other threads. I make no excuses. It is not my intention, but it is what I do. It is much easier for me to deal with the world I create in my stories than with the real world and perhaps that is where I should concentrate my efforts. I don't want to be disruptive to the wonderful community you people have built here over the years. When I post, I will try to limit myself to less controversial topics and write with more respect, tolerance, and civility. As I've written in the past, I am amazed that I was invited to submit my stories on Awesome Dude when there are far, far more talented writers here than I and it is rude and disrespectful for me to presume to march in here after a six year absence and tell you how you should be doing things. Please accept my apologies. Quote Link to comment
