Disagree. This is the internet, not a trusted relationship.

I don't really become involved in people's inter-personal drama on that level here and I do realize that it takes a lot to get banned from here (personal threats, abuse of privileges, etc) and I don't generally feel righteous about...well I don't feel righteous about anything. It's not my shit getting fucked with so I don't judge. However, he was a pretty cool guy on here at one time as I remember and I think his contributions and "atta boys" should outweigh his "oh shits."

Everyone fucks up. Everyone has their weaknesses and everyone needs some time to pull their head out of their asshole. Power-mongering turned out to be his. I am of the firm belief that we should be willing and at the ready with a bottle of lube, a shit-eating grin and a shoe begging to fill the new hole. None of us should be so jaded or full of ourselves that we're not willing to accept an apology. Beat the crap out of him and then buy him a pint.

But it's up yo y'all. That's just my tuppence.

That wasn't an apology.

THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!!!
If someone does the “Fine, you’re right, I’m clearly a terrible person, I’m Satan, I’m the worst person alive, I should just die” thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.


Although it is outside the purview of this organization to offer personal advice, we can say -- without assuming any liability -- that previous experience indicates (and recent market studies corroborate) that given the present condition of the marketplace, continuing with your present course of action is likely to result in substantial in

Oh wow. I only just peeked in this thread now since my reply. I hadn't been back until now because I just didn't feel like looking again.

I chatted a bit via PM with someone from here. I don't even understand what this thread is doing here if the situation was that bad. Isn't this like letting him post by proxy? One last hurrah to get some real estate on Apple Talk? Why are we even discussing this? It should be a non-issue. Sike-a-like-o bans are permanent, right?

On any given week.  At the very least.

I'm kinda hoping Daruko destroys PD in 2012, though.  It would be oddly fitting.  DARUKOPOCALYPSE NOW: THE MAYANS SAW IT COMING.

Which is, oddly, too bad. What posts he has made since being un-banned are mostly intelligent and thoughtful.

Even before he got banned here, he was always capable of making intelligent and good posts.  However, the lack of drama + enduring good quality since his return does make his lack of greater presence more of a shame, I agree.

He's one of the rare few who actually stopped digging in and screeching, and grew as a human being.

Though I may have often been wrong, my heart was always sincere.  So I could not sincerely accept that 100% of the mistakes made were my own or that 100% of the claims made about me were 100% true.  If that is a fair benchmark for an apology, then I regret to say that I cannot pass that test even today with any sincerity.  This made for a stilted and awkward apology, with ill-considered attempts at humour, but I meant it sincerely.

So yes - while all this mattered deeply to me four years ago back when I thought I still had a chance to keep control of the forum I had invested a significant amount of time and emotional energy developing - I subsequently moved on to other things and got over it.  I'm not looking to start old fights.

But I've been told that my continued presence here depends upon my actions, so I'm testing the waters with this thread - if the intensity of the feelings evident from before are still present, then I won't waste any more of your time since my presence could only cause disruption. 

Either way, thanks for all the good times.
