As a lot of you most likely know I was banned by Hubs for my disgraceful bevhaviour on Friday night. I insulted two people and I just wish I could take back what I said. I have been having really bad personal problems but my guess is a lot of you do as well but don't get on abusive or slag people off.
Anyone that I had as a fan was also removed, that was because my fans was reset to zero by hubs, I didnt remove anyone and am slowly adding you all back. I know a lot of you wont forgive me and i know a lot of you are probably bored of my childish behaviour.
I totally agree with your sentiment but I am only human and a rather childish one. Hubs have decided to give me another chance and I don't intend to let those kind people down, have a good Sunday and again to the two people involved a sincere apology.
Calling you anything is being offensive Darkside as it was being personal, in future though I won't make any personal remarks to anyone, well except for nice ones. I still feel a fool and well I am, but I just had to post this regardless to clear the air and just start hubbing again. Have a good Sunday everybody !
dude you sound like my cousin who gets drunk all the time and gets people mad cuz when he is drunk he is stupid. But he dresses like a girl sometimes too and thats just weird. real weird cuz he acts like he likes chicks and then he acts like one. thats real weird.
Glad to see you are back Cap'n. Wondered why you dropped off...Welcome back!
Good on you for offering amends. A buddy of mine has a t-shirt that proclaims him to be protected by "Smith & Wilson" (as opposed to Smith and Wesson). Best of Irish luck to you - if you are half a stubborn as my grampa,(not that an Irishman was ever stubborn) you will make a go of it!
Glad that you are back - your Irish wit was sorely missed. Hope that you are sorting stuff out and getting back to your charming best. That whole situation was not nice, so I am not surprised that it got you down.
As discussed, a couple of smileys for any late challenges, dissent and professional fouls.
Hope you enjoyed the final yesterday - wrong result, but a good match.
Build a Bridge get over it And burn the bridge.. Stop feeling sorry for yourself.. Onward and Upward Cap'n... I thought you had Keel-holed me and wondered how I could Scragg you. But, is that what happened to MandyMyBeau.?
Just Be..... Be Who You Are As a Man & A Friend..
We'll take care of the rest.. Thx for letting us understand what happened..
Oh dear I did not know you had been in trouble..... I have enjoyed seeing you on the forum, but could never understand why you did not become my fan..... I think we are the only two living in Ireland, though I am probably wrong.....
We are both Manchester City fans,my husband is still over in England he watched Everton lose yesterday.....
For your penance, read my hub aboout living with an Everton Fan, and I will read some of your hubs.....
If I be your fan will you be mine xxxxxxxx Huge Welcome Back. xxxxxxx
It will be my best and hopefully be read by a lot of people that suffer the addiction. I had at one time attended AA but gave it up. But I shall leave all that for the hub, deff one to put effort into. Thanks for the idea ripplemaker and also for the welcome back.
I admit what you said still irritates me a bit...I'm sure it'll take Whitney longer to get over what you said if she even saw the post. And it's up to the other two as well, but they are nice so I'm sure they will forgive you.
I always like your postings...other than that one...and I was genuinely sorry to see you go until you started attacking people who were trying to be nice to you.
Anyway, it's all water under the bridge as far as I'm concerned.
BC, Just wanted to say I'm sorry you are having bad personal problems. Sometimes they can come to a head and the pressure valve gets released in inappropriate ways. I'm glad you are able to feel regret and sincerely apologize. I don't know what you did, but admire your strength of character.
I hope your problems ease up in the very near future so that your stress level goes down. Stress is terrible on the body and soul.
Hang in there, folks here obviously care very much about you!
I'm not a "funny" sort of person (except when I'm not trying to be). I don't consider myself "popular" because I don't make people roll in the aisles with laughter and I hold some incredibly controversial viewpoints about, well, everything
I've been out of town for a little over a week due to a death in the family but more than that, I feel as though I've been avoiding most discussions here that are in the least bit personal or controversial. In general, I like everyone here, and I would just absolutely hate to upset someone (as I know I have -- if nothing else, irritated some without intending to). I'm sensitive, but moreover I'm easily angered. And I have a blue TONNE of crap going on in my own personal life right now that I am not sure how to deal with (probably won't be writing on Hubpages for a while).
I have observed you, sat back, watched you, and seen a lot of myself. Amazing, male and female, different countries/cultures and how alike two people can be. Surprises me and has caused me to back off a bit. I guess in a sense you scare me because you're so *like* me (including those things about myself that I want to change).
I didn't see the thread in question (I don't think, given Susan's comments on the subject) and I don't care. I am a forum owner and am not a heavy ban-er. I believe in resolving differences in a mature manner (whenever possible). If it isn't possible, my philosophy is to avoid the person or people who so offend you that you can't interact without an argument of some kind.
I have noticed, if it is helpful to you, that whenever there is strong emotion involved in a situation it is often best to avoid any kind of internet forum, because people are more likely to say things they will regret if there is a certain degree of anonymity. When you're feeling very *sensitive* (as it seems you have been), it seems to be best just to take a step back and leave the computer alone for a while -- it's just too easy to be offended by something not meant to offend.
I'm glad to see that you aren't gone, BC. I hope that things will go better for you in the future and that you'll be able to take a step back and breathe deeply. I sincerely hope that things get better for you in your life. *hugs*
Thanks for the hug and take one back, still getting over that head beating I got lol. I will from now on make a serious effort to avoid the forums if drinking and I intend to talk about my problem with alcohol and the growing trend in the uk to binge drinking and alcohol addiction.
A lot can be taken and learned by a person like yourself. Wow, you aren't one of life's sad losers! YOU ARE TERRIFIC!! Coming across people with that rare gift to "let sleeping dogs lie" and forgive, is a honor. You have a new fan for life. I wish I had your temperament!:wink:
Don't cut yourself so short, the fact that she isn't ignoring you must speak volumes about the person she thinks you must be. I've done exactly what you have done. And like you, I had someone stand beside me, after I behaved terribly towards them, and that was Sufidreamer. So since he is still my friend, and since RooBee is still yours, that must say a little about you and me. (sorry I'm not trying to make this about me, but rather to let you know that you have a friend in me, who has been in your exact same shoes!) I think we often forget that there are real people out there behind these computer laptops and computer monitor screens. I think we take for granted our fan base and our position here on HubPages.
But I'd stop selling yourself short. Because when I sold myself so short, I was only offending the status of my friendship with Sufidreamer. Since people like him and RooBee are true troopers for all to follow, we sell them short too, when we sell ourselves so short. Understand my meaning? Anyways, like I said before Good luck to you, and I'm honored about being a new fan of yours. I look forward to reading some of your fun witty hubs. It sounds like you were a great writer. I don't know if writing a hub about alcoholism fits your style, so I can't wait to be the first to read your 2nd hub!
I think you actually hit the nail on the head when you said sometimes you forget you are talking to real people with real feelings. I guess it's easy being abusive on screen because you can't actually see how much you are hurting a person. Deff well said, good luck to you as well. And Sufi is a good guy, deff needs a haircut though
Was wondering the same thing, anyways once a fan always a fan i truly stick around with friends. Love to have you back and yeah asking the pirate to behave would be day dreaming now wouldnt it lol.. hahah missed the pirate welcome back. From this many responses dont you feel you are loved...
Ah...Bad I am so excited that you are back! It takes a big person to stand up in a crowd and take responsibility for one's mistakes and for that you have earned great respect. I love your humor and your wit. Now you can move forward and put your best efforts into your writing! I am looking foward to it.
I feel really humble reading all your replies, I love you people and I love Hubpages, I will write in my usual style and if I can make you smile just the once then my writing is worthwhile. I intend to give up my drinking, from now I will log my progress on my profile and if I slip up I will admit it and start all over again.
