    Default Amnesty Thread! Comm (And Others) Boarders Welcome!

    I've been reading some of the animosity threads that have happened here between the Comm board and the Yabs board, and a couple other boards, and...

    ...holy shit, what a massive embarrassment for everyone involved, myself included. :)

    I mean, oh, my god, how do normal, ostensibly intelligent people get involved in crap like this? Could we look and sound any more petty?

    I submit that we could not!

    So here's the thing. I always said this was supposed to be a free board, and that's still the way I want to run it, and asking people to leave is not conducive to that.

    So let's do this. Everyone I've asked to leave is welcome back, period. If you left because of some silly friction, feel free to use this thread to tell me why I pissed you off, or what happened to make you feel unwelcome.

    I ask everyone here, EVERYONE, not to dogpile on anyone else, please. Ganging up on someone, even unintentionally, just causes more frustration and I'd like to try to sweep that shit out the window.

    I am well aware that my aspirations do not always match my actions, and if I acted like a creep to you, feel free to tell me here or in pm (but please, not in other threads that are unrelated).

    If you are from another board and simply don't like this one and you feel you have to comment about it all the time elsewhere, this is your chance to say what's bugging you right to the horse's mouth.

    The friction is pretty stupid. We're such a goddamned tiny subgroup of a subgroup of a subgroup, and the bad behaviors of one board are so often repeated on another, I can't see any reason to be obnoxious to one another any more.

    SO this thread is an honesty thread, and if someone says something that pisses you off, EVEN IF IT IS ON BEHALF OF SOMEONE OTHER THAN YOURSELF, please take ten seconds before posting and see if there's any truth to what is being said. Personally, I still love CBR, I have a lot of history here, but I find the little squabbles between the boards to be very souring and juvenile. In short, we should be able to do better.

    And anyone asked to leave is welcome back, even if it's just to tell me what a creep I am or whatever. I would hope that everyone would consider it a fresh start, as a whole lot of us used to be friends and had fallings out over the pettiest things, often.

    I may just be standing here alone looking foolish, but if you've posted here in the past, or are from one of the other boards and have a beef (Comm, Rumbles, back room, X, whatever), then feel free to come in and say what you like, or just come in and give us a chance to be better hosts.

    Thank you.

    I'd like to use this thread to apologize to Whiterose.

    I should add...

    If you HAVE said something shitty about me, for whatever reason, forget about it. I'm letting all petty grudges and such go completely. Consider yourself fully forgiven, and if I behaved like a creep either before or after your comments, I apologize.

    Everyone here at CBR has both blanket forgiveness and an apology, and as I say, if you still feel mad about something, or even slightly irked (or furious beyond reason), feel free to say it here or by email or PM.

    I don't want to be any part of making CBR a minefield any more. It's baffling and embarrassing to new posters and more than a little bit of it is just pointless in the first place. I don't want friends to feel their loyalty is divided. As far as I'm concerned, everyone who wants one is a complete blank slate. Hell, even if they DON'T want one, they get one anyway.

    Best wishes,

    Gail

    YES! Now Gail doesn't know I'm quiet and laid back in person. At least until next Comic Con.

    Gail, I'm sorry you're stinky. And a gurl.

    And I'm sorry Scott didn't tell you about me and him.

    ...

    PS: I'd like to see The Goddamn Mattman back at YABS.

    Yeah I am curious about these Wonder Woman boots I keep hearing about. And I need amnesty because I was on my ass when it came to Gail's birthday, and didn't get something out to her. Then again, hey, I didn't get anything for MY birthday from HER... I should *always* receive gryphon things. Gryphon sculptures, gryphon sketches, gryphon porn....

    I am sorry Gail, I'll make it up to you.

    I'd like to take a moment to apologise to Kyuubi.

    I'm sorry your Gridiron players need to wear all that ridiculous padding to protect their fragile little bodies. Lord only knows what would happen should they go toe-to-toe with a real football player.

    Oh wait, I do know. They lost the last Rugby World Cup by an ASTOUNDING amount.

    ...Did I miss something involving some Comm board?

    Gail, I apologize if I ever did or said anything that made you upset or mad or anything. ^^

    Same goes for all other Yabserses.

    As a formal apology, I will now do a can-can in Wonder Woman boots.

    The thing I like about this board is that we can get away with stuff here that we could never get away with on the other boards.

    Why would I need amnesty when I already have a hard enough time remembering things? I swear, I've forgotten half my damn childhood. Musta been that smack upside the head . . .

    No, wait. That's amnesia.

    You're granting everyone amnesia? Wouldn't it be better to grant everyone ambrosia?

    That whole ruckas must have happened when I was gone from CBR and didn't have service for 6 months (long while back). Hell ... beyond it all I never knew anything existed til lately. Good luck everyone....
