I've never been a person that hides when I'm even slightly in the wrong.
I've always stood up and took my lumps.

I recently posted a thread that could have been construed as being critical of staff or impugning their integrity,
this was not my intention

There was a culmination of events that left me frustrated and which I blew up out of proportion.

In any community or society, there are rules.
We may not like or understand them, but they are there nonetheless, even if they conflict with what we are trying to say.
Rules are there for are reason, or even for a reason within a reason.

In any society or community there is a need for rules and control, otherwise you have anarchy
and I'm sure we don't want that here.

I am appreciative and humbled by the help and understanding, that was projected; not just by staff but by members as well.

I have to say that I am sometimes a little intimidated by staff, and am not able to express myself as I would like, but that's my issue, and I'll deal with it in the appropriate way - with politeness, with understanding and without prejudice.

That said,
if I've caused any offense, then I apologise unreservedly.

Now I'll take my lumps - and feel free to give them.

Would you like one lump or two?






Life happens man, there are misunderstandings, disagreements, etc. Don't stress it. If there's a happy ending that's all that matters.

Hey budski,

You seem like a stand-up person. Look forward to reading your thoughts here.

Well said budski. Still got plenty of friends here, and no doubt will win some more with that sort of attitude.

Much respect mate.

I'd give you a star for this, but as it is, all I can do is say, kudos.

Everyone makes mistakes, everyone rants, everyone jumps to conclusions sometimes, but it takes good character and class to openly admit it.

I'm adding you to my friends list. Don't let it go to your head.

There's no stress and no recriminations on my part.

I felt the need to apologise: so I did.

Thanks for your understanding guys, I appreciate and am humbled once more.

Intrepid?
2 lumps please

You could start with this one, Valhall.



No worries, budski... I think I remember writing something like this after I posted one of those "what if ATS is really (...)" threads.



That was a long time ago, but I know they're not an easy thing to write.

Kudos on ya.

Budski,
Coming from one who knows....

The best thing to do, is to admit to
being human. (there's a pun there, somewhere)

Admit the mistake, and move on.

I, for one appreciate you, and your candidness.

Regards,
Lex

At the end of the day, my honesty and integrity is what makes me, me.

I appreciate your very positive feedback.

I'll never change that much (old dog - new tricks, you know what it's like
)
but I'll always be honest with my opinions.

And I'll always have the integrity to admit my faults - it's a big part of me.

thanks for your help, support and understanding.

BTW masqua?
I thought my story was gone and forgotten - I'm glad you liked it enough to remember it

I'm just not satisfied.
I wanted a pound of flesh and some self-flagellation.



And if you want, you can do it in a basement.
I'm just not sure that what floor you're on will have anything to do with this.

I think every member that has made a few posts on ATS wishes they could take something back, it happens. That damn "EDIT" button goes away much too soon, I rarely have time to sober up before my post become a permanent record in the archives of ATS.

I did read the thread you're talking about, and I saw some very valid points.

This has to be ATS's truest statement.

The enlightened one, seeks to find his faults and to remedy them. Admitting that one is human, and therefore incapable of perfection, is a great beginning. Finding fault in others is all too easy, and seldom productive.

Man, I should write fortune cookies... LOL

The fact that you perhaps blew your top, is well overlooked by your ability to recognize the event in its proper light and then to atone. We all make errors. A good man admits it and moves on.

I wish my duplex had a basement.

Alas it only has a crawlspace so I will never be able to stand firm in my own abasement as Budski has done.........

Good job Budski your a stand up member.

I don't know what you did, and don't care. You're a class act in my book.

Hey, I've ate crow, just ask Lexion. It doesn't taste too bad, with seasoning.


I'm proud of you for being upstanding about whatever happened. In this day and age where so many want to shift the blame, it's nice to hear from someone that isn't whining.

I would give you the Way Above Award for character if I could.
