In light of what has been happening on these forums i feel i need to post this manifesto if you will.
Hopefully @Saltypatra can bring about the changes that have been requested and this forum can revert to the place it was when i joined.
That being said, now time for a mea culpa.
I have been here for 7 months and i have spent a large portion of that time arguing with fellow members of this community. After a time one must look at the situation as a whole and decide where to put the blame.
Now there is now way i was right in every argument and likewise no way ibwas wrong in every one but that is, at this point, irrelevant. For this i feel i must apologize to the community as a whole for my overzealous behavior. I mean that truly.
Some of you may not like me and there are some of you i may never see eye to eye with and that is ok. In fact i think it ia pretty normal. However i would hope that in spite of that we can all find a way to coexist peacfully.
To that end is the aforementioned promise.
I shall endeavor, from this point forward, to conduct myself in a more peaceful manner.
I am not perfect and i will at times fail. I only ask that someone remind me of my promise. Publicly or by pm whatever is deemed appropriate by the person reminding me. Upon recipt of the reminder i will stop and look at my behavior and correct my missteps. This i also promise.
Hopefully this is received with as much sincerity as it is put forth with. There is no need to comment but please if anyone wants to just keep it civil and on topic
Thank you all for reading this long winded post and hopefully this can facilitate a change in the relationship between myself and the community.
