You have no idea what you're talking about, "Ike99".
You´re right Terminus I don´t. I´m am just accepting what Japan said. I do like what he said though.
I Apology for the "negative" debate I might have caused here on your forum, and I see my involvement in it as my own weakness, and for that I am sorry. I will try to refrain from replaying to this type of posts in the future.
I have no reason to defend him but in my opinion this was very high class. I am going to do the same. I do ask that ¨some¨ posters here look at the recent reaction from Buck Beach. Maybe you need to be a little less provacative to people.
Have a nice day.
Japan's last post as Japan was two years ago. He masqurades as other people. Your "style" of posting is similar to his. Ergo, it was assumed that you were him. Not unreasonable , in view of his very many alter egos that he has adopted since his expulsion.
No one objects to you or Buck or anyone else posting here. Or ever had. All that the "Threadsters" request and require is that "you play nice". That's it, that's all, and that the way it's always been.
When someone who comes in and acts agressively,confrontationally, or in general not in a manner considered to be normal, the frequent posters on this thread, like residents of any well ordered neighborhood, arrise , band together and defensively challenge the "intruder" (for lack of a better word). What's so hard to understand about human psychology at it's absolute most basic roots?
Agression ALWAYS begets agression. So if someone "barks" at you, it's always a good idea to look back at what you've said, and see if YOU were the one who gave offense. If not, it never hurts to act on the principal that it MIGHT have been you, (however misintended). A humble person is generally welcome anywhere. In real life . Or Cyberspace.
One more bit of advice.....when giving an apology , give it and stop. Don't say anything else. Walk away. Too many people say "I'm sorry", then proceed to destroy any benefit by adding something like ,"however if you hadn't......". Like I said before , a humble man is welcome anywhere.
So why not try again? Forget all previously said and done, and make a fresh start, turn the other cheek and go forth.
Ahh, Saint Stephen.
You do earn brownie points for having good intentions, my man!
