Wow, I just read back... you guys are -still- talking abt me? Why? lol C'mon people, can we not muster a fruitful discussion with one another? Jason King seems to be capable of it. I rather enjoyed interacting with him over on YT, and look forward to doing so again. I'd like to dig past the surly exteriors of many of you, and see whats really there other than a propensity to fight, for whatever reason that is. I'd also like to bring out a bit more of myself than the backhandedness that I am unfortunately prone to when I get irritated or provoked. It's certainly not one of my finer qualities, I must admit. I by no means have tried to be an authority on the Subject of Satanism, and if I have come off that way, then you'll have to overlook that. Honestly... I don't think there is any such thing as an authority on the subject. My opinions are mine... and if you don't like them, you are always free to look away.
You know, it'd be infinitely more productive, as well as present a better image of us all here at SIN if we all stopped flinging feces at each other anyway, myself counted amongst you by the by. I am no exception to that... I played my part, and honestly... I am ashamed. I really am. I loathe such petty behavior with the blazing fury of a thousand suns.
Looking back on it... I rather wish I hadn't stooped to that level to begin with. Taking that into consideration, I wont be roped into it again, nor will I attempt to rope others. If I say something you don't like... well, let it go or at the very least try to find a more reasonable way to convey to me your displeasure if you would be so kind. Believe me I'll most certainly be doing the same. It doesn't put any more money in my pocket, nor does it profit me in any other fashion to act like a boisterous roughneck. I'm not sure it does for anyone... I'm above it, and I'd like to think... or rather, hope that you all were as well.
Lets move on, get some ground behind us, make some progress in our interactions. There's no sense in all this silliness, is there? I mean, was there even a point in all of this? If there is, and I am missing it, then tell me please... because I am really not seeing it! I don't think any of us are going to look back from our deathbeds and reminisce proudly over the moment that we carried on that infantile argument on SIN. I certainly hope that isn't the case anyhow... because if it is, that would be a sad sight indeed.
There's a saying that I like to use from time to time that I believe would apply here. Having an argument over the internet is like running the 40m dash in the Special Olympics... even if you win, you're still retarded. ;-)
All this having been said, consider my olive olive branch of peace officially extended. I sincerely hope that this post wont result in more of the same... but if it does... dont expect me to react. I'm not sure, but I'd like to think we had better uses for our time. My personal goal is to make contacts here that could eventually result in many worthwhile and perhaps even lucrative endeavors. I'd like to make friends, too... the kind that share the relentless pursuit of pleasure of whatever kind, and seize it; to have conversations that enlighten me and vice versa... and who knows, maybe even pick up a new trick or two in the process.
I don't know everything, and probably never will... but damned if I'm going to let my pride and reactionary ways get in the way of trying, vis-à-vis absorbing information from you all. Much fun could be had here... or at least I hope. Much could also be learned, and already has been in some ways, at least on my account... both abt myself and abt many of you. I really hate that my point of view induced such volatility. The last thing I want would be to make enemies. What good does that do anyone?
