Reading through these old threads, I am thoroughly embarrassed by some of the positions I've taken and some of the arguments I've made.

So, I wanted to take a moment and just say: I apologize. I was a dipshit, raised by bigots, and completely ignorant to a number of things that would have, or should have, made me view the world differently. I advocated for things that now make me angry to hear from someone else. I said things that were based in an ideology that I did not understand. I made an awful lot of really stupid comments about things regarding which I was entirely uneducated and inexperienced.

I said these things here, and in my "real" life, and I am genuinely ashamed by many of them.

I think I've grown more empathetic and, hopefully, wise in the past ten years. It's been a slow process, and I still stumble sometimes. But I'm working on it.

Anyways, I doubt anyone will see this. The board has been truly dead for some time. But I felt like I needed to let you all know that I'd grown up. And that I am sorry for the dumb shit I've said over the years here.

NOT OK!!!

Kidding bro. We've all said some shit we regret over the years. I'm pretty sure I could write a book from everything I wish I could take back, hehe.

Hope you are doing well.

Getting old sucks by the way!

I'll tell ya, the conversations and arguments here really helped open my eyes to some of the things I didn't really understand or have experience with. This board really helped me grow as an adult.

And I doubt we'd argue all that much now. I'm pretty far left at this point, especially for a white guy living in Arizona.

Crazy to think this country is 1000% more divided than it was back when we argued about shit. I have zero hope for us really.

Dad always told me "You live and learn, or you don't live long."
Learning late is better than never learning at all. ;-)

I think part of the reason I check back in with this community very infrequently is that I don't like the version of me you'd all remember. I was a moron, and it's embarrassing talking to people who remember that.
