Hello ATS site members, Administrators and Mod’s, I was banned a while ago, for being a smartass with Springer, I wasn’t vulgar, but I was rude. Unfortunately a time before that, I got into a u2u argument with Gools and was banned (without even knowing it) since the argument was about points, I decided to prove I didn’t care about my score, and left my account dkman222 and started pondering soul (the one Springer dealt with) before he even had a chance to ban dkman (I never logged back into dkman so I didn’t know).

I want to apologize mostly to Springer, because I was being a smart-aleck with you, when you really only tried to help (I saw it as you being a smart ass with me, and I was wrong).

To Gools, I am sorry to, what I did was wrong, even though I thought at the time I was doing nothing wrong, I cant remember the u2u I sent you but I know I was rude.

Since then I have had more accounts then I can remember since they generally don’t last more then a day (my I.P. is noticed and I am re-banned), I love to star and flag what I see as good material, sometimes I occasionally and respectfully express my own opinions. I have made countless accounts in the pursuit of being able to merely star/flag and see avatars

Some of the account names I can remember are, *shortest man walking*, *hermanthegerman*, and *soon to be*, please feel free to check all those accounts and there post, I say nothing vile, and I am respectful..

I want nothing more then to be given a 2nd chance (technically a third, but I hadn’t known about dkman222 being banned till after pondering soul was banned)

You can monitor me closely, give me additional rules to follow, even assign me some sort of task like reporting other bad post as much as I can.

I just want to be given a 2nd chance to fully enjoy, which is in my honest opinion, one of the best sites on the internet, and where I spend a great deal of my online time.

In closing I want to say again, that Springer, I am sorry, and I hope even if I am not aloud back, you personally forgive me, I appall rude people, and I became one of them while addressing you.

I hope this message will be passed along to Springer and Gools, and I hope it reaches them in good health.

p.s. I will be trying to send this in u2u to Gools and Springer as well, from this account i just created.

Especially considering those decisions are subjective...

Good luck man. I have to admit, it would have been easier to just circumvent the IP issue, so maybe it proves that you are really wanting to try. I don't know you, but I like a good apology.

You are welcome...

But having me in your corner may not be a good thing for rather than compromise your ability to come back, I shall disappear...

Good luck man...

I respect a person that can admit the error of their ways..

i find that multiple screen names are very aggrevating to me..

I hope that the mods take this into consideration,and re-work the way they ID IP addresses and multiple accounts...

PS..the only reason I am replying to you is that I do infact plan on moving to alaska in the near future..

Major kudos for having the guts to say sorry and ask for a second chance.

I know many members that get banned here go on to cry and whinge about it all over the web for years to come.

I hope the staff see that the way your OP was written is a clear indicator that you would be an asset to ATS.

Good luck to you.

Thank you all for your kind words and flags.

my only hope is that springer and gools feel the same as most of you.

Welcome back to ATS, I hope that you enjoy a long and fruitful experience this time around.

I think you might as well get posting and junk ...

Though I have no way of knowing I am sure that staff has noticed your return, appreciate your candor, and are letting you be.

Time to move forward Alaskan Man.
