That is decent of you, sir.
Nonetheless, I do not believe that this is the place for me. I support and admire your mission of raising the Rationality Waterline, but I am a man who belongs in the trenches. Best I can do is use your Dark Side teachings, and send the occasional padwan in your direction to learn the Vicious Arts.
Grant me your prayers as I fight against the insufferable Good within the world.
Oh, believe me, I shit the bed on this.
I was still all ornery from the last time here; I let that get into my blood, and overreacted. I've only recently attained any internet prominence, and this was my first time experiencing hate. Despite all the mental preparations... I reacted poorly.
I prefer to own my failures, however; I fucked up three weeks ago. Anyone can see that.
As I said to another commenter - I suspect that I am better as a beacon for rationality, pointing new pilgrims to his place, than I am a member of the community.
I just apologized. F5 the page.
I was too much of an asshole; here it is in comment form.
I'm taking a 24 hour break, thom. I was over worked up, and I let it spill into this comment thread, overreacting to what people said.
I've probably acted like a jerk. not completely devoid of purpose, but a jerk nonetheless. I'd like to apologize for all of that. I had no call to be so rude to all of you.
Gah. I suppose I should repost this to the top.
Delete: hopefully nobody saw that.
