But it doesn't change the fact that I come off as a jerk. I'm well aware of that.
>LOL. Is this meant to be humorous?
It's a kind of dry humor, yes.
>This must not be your first taste of criticism in regards to your demeanor.
Let's see, the number of people who have complained about my attitude would be...I don't think I can count that high. :D Then again, a surprising number of people find that my attitude adds to my charm. ;)
>I abhore Censorship for the most part.
That's something that the administration team has been working on recently (hence, my return to modship). I don't believe in editing content out of a post, or censoring people at all (ie. with a ban or by deleting threads) unless they intentionally hurt the community or seriously affect the ease with which people can get quality technical help. Despite how it seems when I open my mouth, I'm exceptionally tolerant of people's rights. ;)
>Can we all please try to come to terms with this and not only "drop it", but resolve it?
Doubtful. First, it's nearly impossible to get two sides with extreme and opposite opinions to resolve a problem without separation. Second, I'll speak for the moderators and say that an executive decision would be excessively draconian and you shouldn't expect it for trivial differences in opinion that should be handled by individuals in private. At the most, the thread would be locked to halt stop the public argument for that thread if it got out of hand.
