Default Disclaimer: Something you should know about me.

Discalimer: I am typically very blunt, and don't censor myself while in normal discussions, especially those that gain a heated emotional reaction from me (like the subject of Geoff Johns and what he has done with Hal Jordan). This often makes me an asshole.

As you may or may not have noticed. I am no longer a mod. This is becasue of a few reasons, but the fact of the matter is that I simply don't want to deal with the shit anymore... I was thinking about leaving again, because this place had become my source of stress, rather than my distraction from it... some people know this due to FC conversations I've had with them... at any rate. Andrew decided it would be best for me to not be a mod anymore, and I agreed with him. And I hope that will make me enjoy this place a lot more.

As a mod, I self censored to an extreme, deleting more than half the posts I would write before posting them, because I decided as a mod, I shouldn't act or say something like that... but now that I'm not a mod... I'm not going to be so overly concerned with my posts that I don't post them. So, becasue of that, I'll apologize in advance for anything I may say or do that may be taken as insulting... becasue 90% of what I say that could be taken as such, isn't meant that way. (Andrew knows what I'm talking about, and he will attest that you get used to how I really am over time, as we have been friends on another board since long before this place existed.)

I decided to make this public disclaimer to inform you all about this. I really do apologize in advance if I insult anyone here unintentionally while posting. Most of the time, I won't even notice if something I say could be taken as something insulting, but sometimes, I'll notice that it could, and add a line to a post, like I did earlier today (which, the reaction to said post, is actually what lead me to the decision to make this disclaimer).

But yeah... I do often come off as an asshole... so... yeah... just FYI.

Disclaimer: I am always blunt. I like joking around with people, but a lot of comments here will cause me to come off rather bitchy. So...yeah.

Due to Parrys de-modship, I will now be less of an asshole. No, I'm fucking with you. I'll still be me. I'm just posting to let people know that if I do "snap" and offend you, its probably because I feel your last statement is bullshit. Its not anything personal. I won't be calling you a bitch or anything but do not be surprised if you are called a fucking idiot. Its not personal, and its not uncommon to be a fucking idiot. If Parrys or my blunt actions/words cause for banning, then I'm sure he is like me in saying we're okay with that. We're assholes, but not intentionally. Its because you make us that way and I'm thrilled to know that people here don't fully see me in that light.

So to end things...I will not be censoring myself any further and await the swift and usually just hands of Admin/Mods when possibly stepping over the line. Thanks Parry for the inspiration!

Sometimes it's hard not to come off that way when typing a post. Lots of times, I'll type something sarcastically, then when I read it before I post it doesn't read the same way I mean for it to sound.

You just can't type sarcasm.

Its very hard. I use the quick post most of the time though, so I never look over my posts unless I'm writing a long one.

You lose a lot in the way of signals when you write something out for others. If we had video chat with every nuance captured it might be different, but as it stands we make the best with what we have.

I myself often come across as an asshole, but I think alot of that has to do with the fact that I generally hate people. Strangely enough, here on this forum I don't feel that way. I guess because I figure there are other geeks here like me that I actually have things in common with.

We could always go get Caleb back. I know he'd be up for it.

And yeah sometimes its the fact that you can't pyshically hear or see the person that makes a statement that could have been not assholeish into an assholeish statement. And yes assholeish is a word.

For example: I could go "You guys suck!" While actually laughing and being completely sarcastic but then someone could get pissed.

Just part of forum life unfortunatley.

Doesn't bother me too much. In most of the posts I read I always imagine Comicbook Guy from Simpsons is saying thw whone thing.

if "You are what you eat" then I'm not, nor never have been, an asshole.

Going by that rule, I'm more of a boob.

or pretzel. (just ate one.)

I hope you take this as a joke but before I read this i saw the title and to myself is it that you are an asshole? (as am I) I couldn't believe this was a public announcement of your assholeishness. anyway good to have the uncensored parry here.

Parry, I'd give you a hug, but I don't know how to do that through the web. You're right that some places here can be frustrating (which is why I avoid Qward now) but if you feel you need to be an asshole to better have fun, then who am I to tell you not to? Go forth with my blessing.

Oddly enough, I never thought you came off as an asshole. In fact, I thought you were one of the most insightful of the people posting in this forum.
