Oh, c'mon...  Hope it's not because of me...

I just sent a personal message to John Shaw, but I might as well make it public:

Quote
Subject:  It's complicated...

I'm not going to ever finish my dissertation where I go through all threads where we've interacted over the years to try to prove that I was right.  I'm also not going to say that I was wrong where I wasn't.  I'm just too emotionally burned out by what happened, and I want to try to learn to get along with people.  Beneath many other layers of things that happened, I have a lot of respect for you, and I hope this respect will come to the surface soon again.


Like I said on the other forum:

Quote
A lot of very bad things have happened in my life over the past few years, and my hopes for my direct involvement in the Free State Project were torn asunder...  I, yet again, am trying to glue Humpty Dumpty together again, piece by piece, and a very important piece is me being able to reconcile with FTL and its forum community, which at one point was the only constant in my otherwise FUBAR'ed existence...

Can't we all just... get along?  Please?  Please?

Why?

Doesn't look like anyone's going to enforce your actions. If anything I'd quit that.

Praise Allah, Libmans back! He is one crazy fucker. Case in point, a mental breakdown over a web forum.

Sorry to see John go though.

There is an ignore button for a reason is all I am say'n.

I don't understand why liberty people are excusing death threats.

Yeah, I get that. But words are words. They are rarely backed up with actual action. Like "Change you can believe it". Did anyone really believe change was on the way? Same thing with Alex. He is kinda like a politician that way.

See above. I don't buy into the whole "words can hurt as much as a fist can" bullshit. The reason I don't buy it? I've had people tell me they "are going to kick the shit out of me" and then I've had people that actually did. Words don't hurt and are harmless unless you decide to let them hurt you.
