For those who wish to leave comments in my hubs your more than welcome to, and i'll certainly reply to them. As for forums, this will be my last official post in forums as i no longer feel the need to be here. i won't go into details as i don't want to incriminate anyone. i will say that if you want to keep in touch, your all welcome to e-mail me anytime. anyway, i just wanted to release this message saying that it was an honor and privilege to meet you all.
when i originally signed on to hubpages, i only saw it as a means to make some extra cash. however, what i never expected to find was a good friends and a place where i felt i belonged. which i did, when i started to talk to many of you in forums. sadly, due to a misunderstanding, some users feel that im a jerk now.
it's kind of ironic because in real life people see me that way, but online people never saw me like that. however, maybe the people i know in real life are right. maybe i am just an ignorant stupid jerk. look, i never meant to hurt anyone here. therefore, to prevent any further harm, i won't be in forums anymore.
if you want to keep in touch, do it through e-mails or through comments on my hubs. or the comments i'll leave on some of yours. other than that, that's it. anyway, i hope you all have a nice day, and hopefully a happy holiday.
once again, it was an honor and privilege to meet and know all of you. its a shame i don't belong here with you guys, like i previously thought. however, i've been wrong before. plus, like i said, i was originally here just to blog anyway. therefore, for those that i offended, i appologize and you will never see me in forums again after this post. thank you all for your time and goodnight.
Dont go... I havent even got to know you!
Leave the forums if you feel you must, but know that a broken fence is never mended by walking away from it.
You apologized for your past transgressions, which I feel is an effort to mend the fence. Why not complete the process by showing yourself capable of growth and worthy to be friends with?
We all make mistakes, and sometimes things said online don't come out the way we hope they would. Still, there is always a chance to apologize, make amends, and to learn from our mistakes.
Did you give up on walking when you fell the first time? I should think not or you wouldn't be here standing before us today. Wipe off your knees and get back on your feet, I say. Make something of the opportunity by showing your willingness to stand tall rather than crawl away.
There is no honor gained by slipping away ... one only gains honor by conquering one's own shortcomings, becoming a better person in the process.
No one Knows, what is the nature of any person in real life but it's our 'Thought of thinking' that mad us to feel like that.
All the person here are selfish in themselves including me, All are testing your nature if you are good in fighting their words & or No words situation you will be respected otherwise oppositely .
I also got caught one time in the past here with my previous profile & had been damaged mentally but Then I started spending most of my time in finding what is going on in the world & the result is :
"The human's who are hard in themselves & have no effect of other human's words or no word situation are being respected & surviving & those who feels themselves in negative direction(like as you said in your post) are being respected up to the times till when they have not publicly announced that they are the bad, poorest etc. etc. "
So, Man please don't lose your nature by effect of others, All are the same like you & the only thing that is different that all other feels themselves as normal & you feel a little low.
Yeah If nothing else I am funny, unfortunatelyy I am also self opiniated, and if someone stalks me and then tries the wind up, I just give as good as I get. Difference is I don't hit the Personal attack button Hate narks. lowest of the low.
Nice to see you smiling. Going to read your Hubs. Alot of people feel exactly as you do. I know who the nerdies are and it aint you. lol.
OMG! I never thought you are a jerk! Did you and Beth quarrel? I'm so sorry! I'm a bigger jerk than anybody and I still go in the forums. We will miss you Steven - don't go! There are so few intelligent humorous people around, we can't afford to lose you! Anyway - I hope you will just get over it already and come back, ok?
Why am I being singled out in this?
I have certainly not called Steven a jerk, nor have thought of him as being one.
This thread is a little nebulous, and too many assumptions. I'm not into that.
I read them talking last night, hoping that they hadn't offended you and Steven said he thought you thought he was a jerk and he felt bad - that's just what I read - not singling you out at all! I was definitely not making any assumptions - you can read it for yourself! When did everyone get so damn sensitive?
mega, please stop talking to beth like that. she has nothing to do with this. besides, this is just a rational decision that i've made on my own. please leave her alone.
sorry I talked to you at all - and definitely you were the one who said you were afraid she thought you were a jerk - last night in the chatbox - this is a ridiculous game you guys are playing and now it IS offensive - I'm finished with this!
nobody is singling you out or anything okay. i never said your name at all or anyone elses. look beth, im sorry that you feel that way okay.
I have no clue what you are talking about or what you think you did, but I am sure it isn't that bad. There are lots of decent people on here, a few jerks, too. Stay, Holly
I think you've stated how you feel, I know your sincere but there is no need to exile yourself. That is of course you feel the need or desire too. We hope you change your mind
I sent you an E-mail, Steven. I hope you read it. You should stay! don't be so dramatic.
Well, I don't really know you Steven, but let me say this:
If someone talks crap about you or to you, then you let them win by backing down. I'm not saying you have to keep an argument going. I'm not even saying you have to talk to them at all. Keep chatting with those people here that you respect and like, and let the others know that you are not going to be chased off. Then, you win.
Hey bro you should definitely stay. it was me who fucked everything up and i am sorry as soon as i write this i am deleting my account. i recieved an email stating that what i did was not funny and was rude. so STAY! i am the jerk and i don't belong here good bye all and VERY sorry for the problems i caused.
you're not a jerk !!!
We're all grown ups here, I THINK ??!!!!
well, it wasn't very funny, but it wasn't nearly as rude as some of the other stuff that gets said, so both of you stop being all melodramatica and just chat with us. Nothing anyone did was that bad! And I am as big a jerk as either of you, but what the heck!
last post ever* well crazd sent me a pretty hateful email so since i'm the one who caused all this i think i'll just leave it's better that way
i know i said that i wasn't going to post anymore, but i'll make an exception this one time.
no, don't delete your account bacon. besides, like i said before i only came to hubpages to make a few extra bucks online anyway, so i guess i'll have more time to do that now since i won't be on forums. besides, im not leaving hubpages completely, just not going to talk to anyone in forums anymore after this comment.
besides, your a pretty good guy trust me. don't let anyone tell you different. besides, you can always e-mail me or keep in contact through comments and stuff like that.
Steve, don't let morons, like me, ruin your fun! C'mon back and you can call me a racist again, ok?
Emotions are but waves of emotion
They come in, filling the pool
Overflowing, not knowing where to go
Eventually, the waves flow back into the ocean
Leaving the once full pool empty
But not so as to dry out
Just enough to allow clarity
Emotions are but an expression of nature
This is for you as much for others. Stop, step back and don't make any final decisions. That'll be a mistake. Trust me.
@ Mega -- That's the problem with life when there's no face to face....reading "type" leaves out the emotion and body language. Many things can be contrued incorrectly. I'm not being that sensitive...at the moment at least
@ Bacon -- Just consider her situation at the moment. She's just lost her papa a few weeks back. She's still grieving heavily. Then, she has her in-laws arriving last night who don't respect or value her. She has a huge load on her right now. She didn't need that last night. Nor did I. We all make mistakes, but how we learn is more important. Deleting yourself won't change anything. Stay on. Things will work itself out. Running doesn't do any good.
C ya. I've had my say, now I'm leaving. Do as you wish, but the dramatics are meant for the stage, not the forums. Ciao.
to all those, that left comments in this forum, i would like to thank all of you. however, it seems i only made things worse by posting this forum to begin with. what was originally supposed to be just something to inform people about my decision turned into a disaster. oh well, i guess it's like the old saying goes, if your going to go, just go out with a bang. sorry if anyone here got offended. you all have a good holiday and thank you again for your kind comments and words.
Katrina was a "disaster".
The Hindenberg was a "disaster".
this certainly doesn't qualify. the closest this would be is a "hot mess".
so stay. nobody cares about what drama may be going on, trust me. you seem like a nice guy, ok?
Troll. Really should know the whole story before you say anything!
Trust me ... you didn't. There's just some random elements around here that can't concede to allowing people to work out their differences civilly.
My advice? Message him and care over this in private. I think you both want to see this put behind you and I know you'll both feel better when it is.
The most bizarre thing is this: this whole escapade is not about Steven and me. There are four people involved. We make up only two visible right now. So, everyone thinks its about us. It's not!!!
And Yoshi, you are right, and that has already been done (yesterday) but this popped up tonight...
I'm glad you both worked it out.
As for the hyenas, let them scavenge over the invisible wildebeest and consider it odd entertainment ... kinda like when a group of people argue over when the bus will arrive and then it passes them by ... right on-time ... and all of them miss the bus.
This is why I adore you!!! Oh, you have me laughing!!! I really needed this! Thanks Yoshi! You're the BEST. BTW, happy holidays!!!
I thought you were a girl! You're a boy? Your parents named you beth! No wonder you have an attitude! I'm sorry, I didn't know!Have you considered therapy to help deal with your gender identity issues?
You're pretty good at pointing fingers! Too bad you don't see your own pattern of behavior!
-smek-smek-smek- (remember Mad magazine? when someone would gently smack someone in the face? it would make that -smek- sound? that's what that is)
now, get back in here and let's have no more talk about leaving
Excuse me for butting in....but hey it's Christmas, a time to forgive and let go. No idea what happened and don't need to know, but Merry Christmas to you all and have a good one!
I hope so!
all this is so childish!
This doesn't go to you Beth !
well from what little i have observed, he seems to be way too hard on himself. *tsk* he's such a nice guy too.
hello all. after much thinking. i think i over reacted to this whole situation. it's just that i have a tendency to over analyze things in my head, that it messes with me when i get into a conflict with a situation. to be clear, i apologize for anything that i've done to anyone. i already told a few select people this, when i spoke earlier today. i was speaking out of emotion instead of rational thought.
you see in real life, everyone treats me like an idiot. yet here, i seem to come out respected. i don't know why to be honest. i guess a part of me was affraid that one bad situation was going to ruin it all for me. however, i shouldn't do that. as one hubber said in this forum. i can't run away from things. i think for the past few years, that's all i've been good at. however, i won't this time. look, im sorry for getting you all involved in this stupid situation.
please don't post blame on anyone here. this is all my fault. therefore if you have anything negative say sneakrocksolid, then please aim at me. i was the one who started this. no, im not singling you out because of past regressions or anything like that. just asking you to please stop this quarelling.
i made a mistake of escalating this situation to be bigger than what it ever should've been. i know that i can't undo all that's happened, but i do know this. i never meant to hurt anyone. and if i could do it all over again, i know i would've handled it differently. like a friend once told me, all you can do is learn from your past. don't live in it. always look towards the future. i guess i need to start living by that motto.
cool my friend, now your coming around-good to see
Steve, I hope you read this..
You have devestated me and crushed my spirit...You have always been here when i needed you, I do not know what to even say now..
I am actually crying, like I lost a good, close friend forever..why leave and do this to those who care about you over a few stupid and arrogant people..why steven, why?
look, kerry i wasn't thinking. at the time, i was merely afraid of losing all my friends here on hubpages due to a misunderstanding, so i felt the cowards way out was best by running away. however, i can see now by seeing how much i hurt not only yourself but others as well, that i should have never even considered it. im sorry i made you cry kerry as that was not my intention. i promise im not going to leave forums as i previously stated. that was just a premature statement out of emotion and nothing more. im sorry that i hurt you kerry. however, please believe me when i tell you that i promise im not going anywhere as i'll always be here if you need me.
Steve, you need to get rid of some of the people in your "real" life. People who make you feel like an idiot are not your friends, and you seem like a very nice and intelligent guy. I've had to make some difficult decisions and remove some people (including family) from my life, and have no regrets about it. We're only here once, so far as we know, and you need to take care of yourself. No one else will.
There are so many people with low self esteem that people like Steve a classic "nice guy" pick on, gives them a little bit of a rise, because they are pathetic. They wouldn't do it to someone like me, as I would be unpleasant back.
I remember at School I used to bash the Bullies, that picked on weak kids, oddly enough because I never told on them. My Credo I was always in the crap for the damage I did to them.
Cest` la Vie. I am also not a fond believer in blood being thicker than water, some peoples families are horrific, mine were great except one mingy brother. that is.
look i appreciate your advice and all. however, this isn't a classic oh my god someone said something offensive to me, so now im upset bit. look, you really don't understand where im coming from, so you have no right to judge.
i don't take ANYTHING from people seriously in forums, except for a few close people. what happened was a mere misunderstanding that escalated into something far worse than it should have been. i apologized and admitted it, so lets move on. if you want to criticize me for that fine. however, i don't think it's fair your labeling this as a mere "hey someone picked on me." bit. when in reality it sounds like you don't know anything. therefore, please don't make any assumptions until you realize the whole story. no, this is not an insult or anything like that, so please don't take it as such. merely an explanation.
That is a good motto to live by....I try to do this. Also just wanted to comment on running away from a situation....I have found that everytime you run away from a problem/experience some Higher Power or the energy of the Universe or whatever you want to call it, presents the same situation to us over and over and over until we finally learn from it. Enjoy your Christmas.
wow...I'm gone for about a week and THIS is what happens. (shakes head) un believable!
Steve...just get back into the forums...geez!
I am devestated by this..I have nothing to say or can even get out right now..I am completly crushed...I feel like I lost one of my closest friends I always looked forward to chatting with in the forums, on the phone and by text...Im just completly crushed!
hey don't worry about it b.c. like i said earlier during this thread, i was speaking out of emotion rather than rational thought. don't worry, im not going anywhere. i changed my mind. as one person told me, its better to face things than to run away. so please don't feel sad.
I'm puzzled. I like all hubbers especially those whose hubs I've read. They all write their thoughts so well. Steve, don't go. I haven't started a read in your site yet. Please?
Steve, I did not even know anything bad was happening to you here???
well it wasn't to be honest. it was all just a misunderstanding over a stupid practical joke that another person did. i won't say who, since i don't want to rat out anyone. however, it's over now. i worked things out, and i never should have made this forum. there's nothing to worry about i promise.
Steve i may not know you though i read some of your hubs,
but my advice is for you to stay and keep sharing your nice views,don't let anyone put you down.all the best.
thanks. hey don't worry, im not going anywhere. after talking it over with some folks, i realized my actions weren't being based on rational thought. i apologize that i made such a big deal out of nothing. don't worry, im not going anywhere.
the forums can get out of hand sometimes, but everyone soon forgets, stay, i am still here, and i have made a fool of myself in the forums lots of times, that is life. We are a community, and their are rows sometimes, but your input will be missed.
yeah, your absolutely right. nobody is perfect after all. however, don't worry. i decided to stay in forums after all.
that is the best news i heard for a long time. You will be more on guard next time...... hugs
DANG!! What did I miss? I've always thought of Steven as a nice guy!
Good, Steven! I have no idea what happened, but I do know that people sometimes get passionate here on the forums. I'm glad you've decided to stay!
thanks i appreciate that. maybe i should start a new one saying im staying, since this one's still getting a lot of buzz. i wish there was a way to delete it though.
reading this makes me sick. people who don't even know the whole situation shouldn't even be commenting. And Steven why would you post this?
Wow I dont' know what to say I am hurt even more by this than what you did earlier!
