i'm going to try to be coherent here as i am sorta drunk.
you cannot tell me that saying something to someone has a diff effect them in the forums.
many kids looked up to you lev, and i honestly believe some may have tried things they normally wouldn't have cause you said it was cool.
it really is no different. i say something that hurts someones feelings, you say something that makes people want to experiment to be cool. talk, whatever kind, affects people differently, good or bad.
yes, you and i will have to agree to disagree.
mostly we've disagreed.
i'm married with kids and been through shit.
you are not married with no kids and have been through shit.
we see things differently, that's life.
i guess i'm just dissapointed that the one place that i thought was always tolerant, suddenly seems like all the rest.
i always thought of this place as my first internet home. my first "sign up".
this place is almost as old to me as my oldest son.
i've been through hells and back, and it was always here, constant. but i suppose things inevidably change.
i will, if necessary, bite my tongue here. but i never thought i'd have to.
