#1 Posted by laserbolts (5322 posts) -

Just wanted to say sorry to anyone I have pissed off over the last year or 2. I can be a bit of a prick and I know that this isn't a legitimate reason to be this way but I have been unemployed off and on for the last year and it has brought a lot of stress into my life. I become easily irritated because of this and sometimes lash out at the people that use this site. It is wrong of me to use these forums as a way to vent and relieve my stress and I apologize. I know this will most likely be locked because there is no discussion value here but I wanted the community to know that I feel bad for being a dick here and there. There are quite a few good people that post here and they deserve to be treated with respect. Sorry to the mods that I may or may not have pissed off and I hope you will forgive me. I am really not that bad of a person. Anyways I just wanted to say that this community means a lot to me and I felt like getting this off my chest. Sorry if this is super corny.

#6 Posted by SexyToad (2760 posts) -

SexyToad finds this apology sexy. But in all seriousness apology accepted!

#7 Posted by Irvandus (2879 posts) -

Apology accepted, even though you were never on my list of internet people I don't like.

It's a website. Come on.

#9 Posted by BrockNRolla (1702 posts) -

I don't know that you've ever personally offended me, but I think it's great to apologize and own up to something if you're feeling guilty. I've done it on these forums before too.

I think if we all apologized a little more, the whole world might be a kinder, more civil place.

I'm assuming at some point I have since 80% of my posts were dickish towards someone. Or maybe those people took my comments with a grain of salt. Either way just wanted to apologize if anyone got bummed out by my dickish ways. I'm trying to live my life in a more positive way and as sad as it may sound these forums are a pretty significant part of my life.

It is a website yes but I spend a ton of time on this site to the point that it is very important to me. Judge me if you want but I seriously love these forums.

#12 Posted by WMWA (1162 posts) -
@laserbolts It's not. Any release is good. Never been a dick to me, but I'm sure everything is forgiven. Keep on keeping' on, Duder
#13 Posted by KillyDarko (1888 posts) -

I don't think I've ever been wronged by you in any way, but either way, apology accepted :)

#14 Posted by TheSouthernDandy (3872 posts) -

It's about time you apologized you butt hole.

...oh wait you're not the guy who kicked my dog? Oh. Well then...I guess we were already cool.

#15 Posted by believer258 (11914 posts) -

I don't remember seeing you in any ill-intentioned posts, ever. Hell, I think I've blown my top and/or been a dick more often than I've seen most others on this site do that.

#16 Posted by BraveToaster (12589 posts) -

Now apologize for making an apology thread.

you might say that but the community i feel is small. i usually see the same people all the time, and i'm sure people see me around all the time.

well you were never a dick to me.

Maybe the people I have been a dick to in the past don't even remember what i'm referring to but I just wanted to cover my grounds. I have had a few negative things to say about Patrick and even though i'm sure he won't read this I wanted to apologize. The dude delivers some good news and I, for some reason, have had a hard time adapting to his joining the squad. He's a good guy and I know I have been a dick to him for sure.

#22 Posted by pyromagnestir (4324 posts) -

For all the talk about people being dicks on giant bomb.com recently, I can't remember a time when someone has been so to me. And I feel like I would've deserved it, what with all the dumb stuff I've been up to on certain recent threads...

Anyways, apology not accepted. Fuck you for not being a dick to me, thereby making me feel small and unimportant right now. (I'm kidding? Or am I? Question mark?)

Sums up my response too. The interactions I've had with you, laserbolts, have never been hostile at all.

Thanks for not being dicks guys. It's an easy topic to troll me over but I am serious about it. I am going to try my best to be a more positive and decent user on this site. This community is something special and I take pride in being a part of it.

#28 Posted by falserelic (5437 posts) -

We all done some questionable things. No need to beat yourself up about it.

#35 Posted by RPGee (759 posts) -

You wouldn't be the first to be an arsehole on the Internet (we've all done, I'll admit to it), but it takes a good person to admit wrongdoing. Thumps up, duder, I thought you were basically alright anyway.

Ahhh many of us have. I've thought about my life and how fortunate I am to be even able to sit in my computer room and comment on things. I am in relatively good health so I have no real reason to be negative fuck.

Just some random dude on the internet. Since you don't know me then i'm sure I have no beef with you or reason to apologize to you. Either way have a good weekend dude.

Have you tried sending him a message directly?

No I haven't. Figured he didn't bother reading them. I'm sure the dude gets quite a few messages. @Claude said:

@studnoth1n said:

seriously, who did you kill/rape?

I heard he was busted for rape and murder. Fucking off and killing time.

Is there something better to do with my spare time?

#45 Posted by PixelPrinny (1030 posts) -

@laserbolts: Silly to assume things like that when you're wanting to apologize. Seems like a half-assed effort if you go into it with a self-defeating attitude.

I only remember because of The Simpsons, but it is such an old gag.

MOE

Nah, it's true. I got their names written down right here on what I call my, uh, "enemies list."

Moe reaches under the bar and brings out a piece of paper. Barney reads it.

BARNEY

Jane Fonda, Daniel Shore, Jack Anderson... hey! This is Richard Nixon's enemies list. You just crossed out his name and put yours.

MOE

Okay, gimme that, gimme it back. (writes on the paper) Barney Gumble.

BARNEY

Oh.

I mean, I didn't mean to come of snarky, which I totally realize I do now. Probably did then to be honest, but it's just a message board. Even if you did piss some people off, so what? you don't know them and probably didn't cause them anything but mild inconvenience for a few seconds...

@studnoth1n said:

@PixelPrinny: what are you saying exactly? some random guy on the internet apologizing for something that never really existed (an actual relationship with another person) isn't putting his all into it? and who are you to determine the authenticity of his apology? throwing shit at shit is a bit redundant and self-defeating, so there's certainly no need to apologize as far as i'm concerned.

I liked your initial "Fuck you loser" reply better.

I shouldn't have to explain what I said, but here goes -- If I feel like I should apologize for my behavior towards someone (which is what the OP has indicated they felt) and then I immediately rationalize not apologizing to them personally by telling myself, "They probably wouldn't have listened anyways. I'll just leave a note somewhere that they might happen to read but probably won't." then I'm doing a pretty bad job of apologizing to that person.
