What you speak of is true. HAL was a big ole jerk to your big ole jerkiness. You weren't the king of being civilized at ATT. As I recall you refused moderation and stated you would never follow the rules. But it was not HAL who banned you for life. HAL didn't make decisions on the permanence of every ban. There was the best democracy money could buy at ATT and your unwillingness to corporate got you the ax.
What rules did I not follow? And, I have never said, in my life "I will not follow rules, ever.". Y'all got what you asked for from me at that website. I was designated the "asshole", there, and so, I became what y'all told me I was. That's what I do, been doing it my entire life. You see me as being something then I become the best I can of y'all's perception of me.
Someone called me an asshole, and a mean person 'cause they didn't like my ctitique of their poems even though I warned them, several times, that they wouldn't like my response. Yet they kept on. Asking, and so I did critique. And, they responded exactly they way I told them they would: and I was the asshole. No, they were.
I consistently called GamerGirl out on her nonsense when no one else would and 99.9% of the time, my observations of her rhetoric was correct but I was the asshole.
Y'all made me the asshole: so, I obliged.
But all that being said. This is NOT ATT. This is not HAL's forum. HAL is not an admin here, and you can keep bringing up the past all day long. It doesn't change anything and nothing can be accomplished from your constant mention of it. If HAL was wrong can he now unban you from ATT? No, so by all means dude get over it.
The past intersects with now, it's how I know Hal. The only problem I ever had with Hal was when he deleted my comments without explanation, at ATT. If he just gave one, I would have dropped it. Hal may have been a member here before ATT but my problem with him started there.
And you say "Hal's not an Admin here" as if he hasn't been prior to just little time ago. Please with defensive rhetoric.
You do realize at the end of the day this forum too could be wiped out. Do you think anyone is going to care what yours or HAL's personas were on here when it's gone? Do you think your opinions posted on this database will some how turn in to a meaningful life changing experience that you will be take with you once it's gone? IDK what you think but when this forum is gone, no one is going to care what someone once said about you online.
Your first line: you say that as if I spend all my time here. I don't. The rest: rhetoric.
I think everyone takes their online personas entirely too seriously, yes it may very well matter today who has the highest amount of darwins or who post the most eloquent posts. But can you take that with you when you die? Can you pay for your college tuition with forum credibility? Is Visa going to allow you to make payments with post counts?
I am me on this website. It's not a "persona".
Sit back, relax, have some cake, and eat it too my friend. Because otherwise your just some guy online who thinks his injustice matters.
Everyone's injustice matters.
