Thread: I wish to cordially apologize for my most recent thread on this forum

  1. #1

    Default I wish to cordially apologize for my most recent thread on this forum

    It was insensitive of me to even broach such sensitive topics as the Holocaust, WWII, and Hitler with such a bull-in-a-china-shop approach.

    Know that I value each and every one of you, and I do not wish to lose some of my closest and most valuable friends on the Internet.

    I have no intent on becoming a National Socialist, you have awoken me to the consequences of my embracing what could only be described as segregation.

    Please accept my apologies.

    To Zipperless, BinkyGirl, and Moo in particular: You are my brothers and my friends, I wish for that to remain so. It is my sincere hope that I can stop this brainwashing process before it takes me down a dark road with no chance of turning back.

    Additionally, know that it was not in any way my intent to bring shame or ridicule to ADISC, nor to the ABDL community at large.

    I came to the forum as a cry for help, not to advance a political position.

    This all started when I got my father-in-law a copy of Mein Kampf for Christmas, as he is a huge WWII aficionado.

    I am deeply humbled, shamed, and truly repentant of my abhorrent rhetoric.

    Crinklesaurus, I personally forgive you. Supporting Nazi's is certainly a really bad thing, however I don't blame you for wanting to ask questions and talk about sensitive subjects, people should be able to think outside the box and discuss outside the box, just be careful next time when you want to talk about something sensitive, that you don't sound like you are in high support of it.

    You shouldn't apologize for raising the topic. It was an interesting discussion with many thoughtful replies and I'm glad that you chose to discuss how you felt and ask questions, rather than stay silent and be left with doubts and fears. That is what we're here for, even if the thread gets locked for going on too long on an awful topic.

    I think you may want to apologize, however, for engaging poorly with the topic. You made a post with very little information other than your support for an inflammatory topic and did not address several posters requests for you to expand upon and explain your feelings. If you're going to bring up something so controversial, you should try to speak more carefully and explain your feelings better when asked. That lets us address your problem better and helps keep a discussion focused and helpful.

    Edit: also this one is likely to get locked too for bringing the subject up again. Best left be I think.

    I agree with ArchieRoni and couldn't have put it better myself.

    This adds a different light to the situation.
    The fashion that he wrote that book in is very easy to become enamored with his beliefs.
    The same can be true of other factions such as that, but once one starts to dig deeper into the subject the hate and discrimination comes out.

    You have no idea how easy it can be to be sucked in, particularly by the sieg-heiling, flag-waving, emotion-raising pomp and circumstance.

    That's a portion of what attracted me to the ideology: the notion of serving this "magnificent" "Empire" and following a charismatic leader.

    Hi, Crinklesaurus,
    I'm glad you posted this apology. It shows that you've learned from a mistake and that you are accepting responsibility for it. I don't think there's anyone in this forum who can say they haven't said or done things in their past that they deeply regret today. I'm glad Adisc was here to help you with a different perspective from the book, and I'm happy you have taken the advice to heart.

    The Mature Topics Forum can get into some pretty heated topics from time to time and it's really important to lay out your perspective properly to ensure appropriate responses. We've had some pretty heated issues there recently, such as gun control, abortion, and rape culture. You will find that people have firm convictions and will not likely be swayed by a few sentences that don't have any references for support. Those are the days you get your head handed to you (and I think we've all experienced that to varying degrees). Even the most volatile topics need to be approached with sensitivity and understanding for all our members. If you're really in doubt about this, then you may want to think twice before jumping in with it. For my part, I would be happy to give you some help and support if you want to post a topic, so we can discuss the merits of the post and ensure it is presented within a proper context.

    I think this whole experience has been quite an ordeal for you, Crimklesauras. My advice would be to take some time and reflect on it and learn, really learn, and understand why some members would be upset. This will help you in understanding how to approach these Forums in the future.

    My feeling from your thread was that this is not who you are, and your apology reflects my belief in that. I know you're disheartened right now, but you will be able to move past this.

    I know it's personal and i don't mean to offend but i assume because of the book you offered him, and correct me if i'm wrong, your father-in-law's interest in ww2 is probably a bit more than just an interest right? Which would explain it's allure to you and peer pressure can be a strong motivator. And that's why said in my initial reply to that thread to think for yourself.

    I also saw that you were conflicted about it and hadn't gone to the "dark" side completely, so i'm glad you were able to see past the delusion and see the reality.

    My future father-in-law is a WWII history buff, with a Bachelor's in History and a PhD in Deaf Studies. He has a Swastika flag that his wife keeps telling him to get rid off, in case they get the wrong impression about him.

    Political correctness. Prominent public display of a swastika would be a mistake, but so would sweeping that portion of history under the rug and pretending it didn't happen. I imagine the future FIL has it displayed in a room with other memorabilia of the era.... Questionable taste, but I understand the concept, and a man's home certainly is his castle.

    As for your original post, I thought it was less than well written, but not offensive in and of itself. The apology is a good idea just to be sure everyone understands. Well done.
