    Default My Apology

    First off, I want to thank seenbad and Brett for accepting my personal apology to them and letting me back. Secondly, I wanted to publicly aplogize to everyone that frequents the Links, and mainly to those that have had direct engagements with myself.

    I started reflecting earlier today on my actions here, and quite frankly, I was embarrassed. I didn't like how I treated people, and I didn't like the reputation that I had at this site. This may be "just the internet," but that doesn't change the fact that people deserve respect. More than I'd like to think about, I came across with a condescending attitude and a brazen disrespect for those that disagreed with me. It was wrong, plain and simple. No excuses.

    However, I do realize that apologies are worth much more when displayed through actions rather than just words. That's up to me to prove throughout time. I can't promise that I won't disagree with others at times, and of course, I am a vocal and opinionated person, but disagreements can be had without becoming personal and and without being condescending. As Thomas Jefferson once put it--I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend.

    Here's to a fresh start.

    Hey Wray, I'm stoked that your back. It's no doubt that we have had our little special moments, but I've never questioned your character because I knew you were a better person than you actually displayed on here. There were times, a lot times when I agreed with some things you said dealing with certain subject, but for me, your tude was wearing me down and like blood in the water it would get me into that shark frenzy we all dive into sometimes. I jumped at the chance to bust your balls just for spite simply because you were busting everyone elses, including mine.

    Deep down I've always held a high respect for you because you are a United States Marine who has done the job of protecting our country. You've been there and done that and I respect you for it. Plus, you are a Yankees fan and that is always a plus in my book. There is a host of other things that I can mention later, typing on a iPod isn't fun.

    Bottom line here is for me is that I'm glad your home. Takes a man to sit and ponder his actions and more of a man to change them. I'm proud to have you back and like always, I look forward to looking and thinking about issues from your side of the tracks. Cool thing about your post Wray, you made some of us think about the other side of the coin.

    Now then, with that being said I don't wanna hear mindless bantering about how the Colts should have won the superbowl. We spanked that ass, deal with it fucker.

    Your home and that's all that matters. Be cool though, OLO has turned into a real prick while you were gone and I think he has the red nuclear button.

    Ditto on this, too. It's good to have you wander back onto the reservation, Wray.

    Oh, great - another mofo Yankee fan. That's all we need, especially on the precipice of a new baseball season! Couldn't you have sent your girlfriend in your stead?

    Welcome back, Wray - here's to second chances!

    changing your avatar would have been a nice start - maybe to something not Yankee related.

    Welcome back Wray.
