I, too, would like to go back to talking about D&D.
That may be the last time I let myself off the political chain. I don't think my point is in error, but on a great many levels I despise the resulting disagreement between a good fellow and myself and our inability to see eye-to-eye. I'm also unhappy with the general dissatisfaction, the ultimate shit-raking that the post inspired, the hard feelings and in general the waste of time it all was. I wrote a visceral post inspired by personal feelings of powerlessness over the general bullshit crap the world is fostering upon itself and I suppose I shall have to resist the tendency to do so in the future.
I haven't felt good about it all day. Everyone is going through their own visceral dissatisfaction on this; I think it's about impossible to relate my dissatisfaction to anyone else's on this forum. There isn't enough time to write all the words, there's too much emotion involved, there's no facial expressions to give evidence of what we as humans really mean and somehow it's just a big fucking fart in the wind.
I apologize. It's really something that should be discussed over beers, and not until the third beer, and then ernestly with plenty of reflection on where all the parties have come from, what they want and where it applies to them personally. The net is too random for this shit. It's too open to abuse.
I apologize. I've thought long and hard about deleting the whole damn mess, but there's something in that which galls, so I won't. I'll leave it there for reflection. I leave it to remind me why I need a chain. There's a reason pitbulls shouldn't be wandering around free.
I apologize. I'll go back to D&D now.
