    This is off topic but needs to be said so I'll say it then drop it.

    I admit I have lost my cool several times in here but NOT unprovoked (that’s not an excuse).

    I have a habit of protecting the underdog from those who prey with words to show dominance.. as is the case with a few people in here (although I trust thats not their intent).. but its not my fight so I should stay out of it. Noted. I also realize now that I may have misread some of you and brought the arguments from you on myself. Misha I didnt mean to insult coolbreeze in his hub, I wasn’t trying to bash it but in reading it again I guess I was out of line in my wording it was one line that was out of line the rest I was just trying to show him how to improve it, but none the less it could have easily been taken meanly (sorry coolbreeze) and so I apologize for returning fire when you deserved to say what you say as I deserved to hear it/feel it.

    Isabella, your personality is a strong one, so strong in fact that I find it hard to read your posts without getting upset, but this is my hang-up, and I have no right to return fire on you, especailly since its not me your verbally "schooling" .

    I do enjoy your hubs and have tried to make amends with you but you don't easily forgive and I assume you never will, and that’s fine, I brought your distain on myself, my punishment is I can never (politely) comment on your hubs and that’s fine, I meant no disrespect (the first two that pissed you off I apologize for) in the last two comments, one was just to tell you you had a youtube movie that was dead and so I tried to help, the other was a polite comment on your hub, but I'll refrain from commenting on anything related to your account/hubs. You have my word.

    Mark I didn’t mean to call you a jerk, I only implied you were acting like one, but even then I was out of line and I apologize for myself being a jerk, your right I was being a hypocrite and showed my a**. I do not want to make you uncomfortable, I actually enjoy your rants on forums and your hubs, and like everyone else I brought your wrath on myself so I have no right to get upset even if you did say something mean or condescending towards me.. can you forgive me for being a jerk? Honestly I didn’t mean to piss people off, and I feel horrible for disrupting such a great group of people,

    I do not want a bunch of people to be upset with me or at me, I'm not a bad guy but admittingly I was wrong in the way I've dealt with my temper at certain individuals and in my senseless ranting in the forum, regardless of ones attitude it is within my control to refrain from commenting, unless i have something of real value to contribute, I take full responsibility for my actions and hope you guys can forgive me for them. I realize you all gave me ample opportunities to "shut up" and I didnt take them but I'm aware of the damage my ranting is causing so I'll stop.

    I'm willing to admit I lost my cool, acted childishly (hypocritically), and have upset some people that otherwise I have respect for. I don't come here to act a fool or to upset anyone, I'm here for the same reason you are, but I've made an error in judgment (several times) the error of voicing my opinion and should take my own advice (your absolutely right mark).. I humbly apologize and ask for your forgiveness.

    I am a passionate person, anyone who reads my hubs can tell that, and I tend to sometimes overanalyze things said, tone etc.. and respond when I shouldn’t, my passion mixed with my opinion when upset at someone is a volatile mix and I'm aware of it now and promise to behave

    I didn’t mean to upset you mark, Isabella, misha, and anyone else I've upset, and hope we can get past this and start fresh, everyone deserves a second chance so I'm asking for one.. can we go back to the fun friendly hubtivity festivities?

    I promise to refrain from negativity, hierocracy, jerkery, opinionated gibberish, wasting of the hubpage teams time (and its fellow hubers), I look forward to better times with you guys, lets synergize not patronize ok? were here to make money and spread some intelligence not ignorance, so what say we start off fresh and respect one another.. let he who has never sinned cast the first stone?

    Thank you for listening.

    I think your a great guy Jerrico, We have all shown our asses at times.
    But many will not admit it or take responsibility for their actions.
    They know who they are.

    For the most part people are decent and understanding here at hubpages.
    There will always be people who refuse to get along with others.
    You are not one of those people.

    Let it go dude,dont take these people or life so serious.

    I have been here a half a century if I have learned one thing about life it would be.

    Life is all about our capacity to give and receive love.

    Aloha Jerrico

    thanx everybody smile I find I relax more when I spend the day writing hubs hehe.. I'm haivig an influx of topics and no time to write.. its the opposite of writers block but it can be just as bad.. hope everyone is having a great day..

    Yes, I know about the opposite of writer's block, a writer's crossroads!

    Have a great New Year, Jerrico!

    Owning up to your mistakes is an admirable feat.  I, for one, appreciate that you stepped up and offered an apology. 

    Good luck with your hubbing, life, and New Year's!  Maybe a resolution for you can be to say one nice thing to someone you may not normally say something nice to?  I know that's one of mine.

    Hey Jerrico. Nice one.
    Just wondering if you could have posted this as a Hub...

    1. Jerrico Usher profile image57
      Jerrico Usherposted 16 years agoin reply to this

      Its funny you say that.. the wishing hub explained why you should never be too proud to appoligize... as for putting this as a hub (the way its here) its personal and for those hubbers I disrupted in a forum here not for the public to see at large.. but I did touch on explaining my actions in that hub "You've made your wish why havent you show up to recieve it"

      Gamegirl- thanks I appreciate your candor thats awesome! by the way I do do that say something nice thing, actually I try to do that all day, nothing like making others feel good! I'm not really a jerk in real life, I guess I just got stimulated in the forums and well made an arse of myself smile

      Kenny- Yea I have to keep a pen and paper next to me, and and open text doc to jot down the ideas, I get them ALOT when I read you guys posts, and when I am researching my own.. so much to say so little time huh? hehe

      Dkdukes- inspirational, I can tell your an optomist by heart, and a good soul!

      compu-smart- thank you! lol I felt it was a bit winded and thought noone would read it sad but I was wrong (that people would read it, it is a bit winded lol) you seem to have an amazing attitude, and I'm flattered you like my writing.. that means alot, I think an authors greatest currency isnt the click throughs its the feedback when someone enjoys what you wrote.

      Misha- thanks man, I appreciate you  not stayin mad, you don't seem like the type not to forgive, I could tell when you said "I could have said it nicer" that showed conviction and integrity.. your good peoples.

      cool breeze- thanx! your a great guy too, I like your spirit!

    Jerrico: I generally don't get involved in online disputes or feel drawn to it, but was observing now and then when I would visit some threads, and I was getting a little concerned that perhaps getting too involved in the forums may not be good for one's online health. LOL!  .

    You showed courage and a certain sense of humility in the midst of some strong personalities, qualities that I value. You rock, dude!   The responses by our fellow hubbers speak for themselves too;  its very nice to be in a community with hubbers like these.

    ripplemakerposted 16 years ago

    Jerrico, I agree with VioletSun.  After I tried posting in the forum and I just woke up one day and read all the arguments that happened (while I was sleeping), I was kinda "scared" of writing in the forums once more.  Hahaha

    So...woh!  This is a very nice change.  What can I say?  I am proud of you.  :-)  And yes to all the hubbers who have accepted his apologies, I am proud of you too. Let's continue to choose to create ripples of joy.  And help make our world a better place.

    Mishaposted 16 years ago

    Guys, just wanted to remind you that Jerrico agreed to not post on these forums. When you are addressing him, directly or indirectly, you make his task (staying off the forums) harder...

    And those apologies where made *before* the latest outbreak, not after...

    Let this thread (and other Jerrico threads) die in peace, please...
