I wanted to apologize for yesterday. I posted this, went and took a shit, and when I refreshed the page it had 50 replies and had been locked. How it was received was not how it was intended. I came in swinging and trying to bust people's balls, but I guess I need to establish myself before doing that.

The background for this is that many of the discussions I see on here remind me a lot of the "Thanksgiving" discussions I have with my dad. He is a very mainstream right wing guy, and I am decidedly more libertarian. I think if I had phrased it in this way it would have been a lot less upsetting.

A little about me. I am a tanker, and it is in fact the best job I have ever had. I grew up bowhunting whitetail south of Atlanta and have shot guns since I was little. I bought my first AR, a DDM4V5, after graduating college and I love shooting. I found ARFCOM a while back and I love it, my wife said the other day "All you do all day is look at pictures of guns, stop torturing yourself." Nope.  

So I apologize for what I said and how it came off, and would take it back if I could. I hope people will forget this in time. I am the furthest thing from a troll, and am absolutely not a reincarnation of some long dead asshole.

It's unsafe to make any assumptions here. They will inevitably be wrong. The only exception to this rule is "Them". If you've really lurked here as long as all that, you know who they are. You can always depend on them to live up the stereotype.

So, you came here and basically made a bunch of accusations about the members and got piled on for it? WTF did you expect?

I have no idea what you are trying to convey but I accept your apology. Now that I have gotten that out of the way I am going to go have a good cry.

Link Posted: 8/31/2015 5:23:01 PM EDT
Apology threads generally result in some asshattery. Just he name of the game. Roll with the punches and it will all blow over eventually.


Deej really does remember everything, though.

Dam.
If you started a thread on here with your first post and it was locked your probably headed for some type of legendary status here.

Better get some thick skin here. Someone will call you out on anything so be prepared to defend your position.

I have never made a mistake, so I am unsure of what this "apology" thing is. But o.k., accepted. Surviving in GD is like kicking out your windshield, wrapping your car in chicken wire with a railroad tie for a bumper and then gunning it.

I kind of feel like this too honestly. I didn't even insult anyone's gf/wife/mother/dog or anything. But I guess a double digit post count kind of flips a switch for some people. Not that I shouldn't have said what I said differently, but that's part of why I was taken aback, I got back and

But whatever everything I said above here stands. BTW me and my tank, my beautiful precious tank.
