I just got back from afternoon services for the eve of Yom Kippur, where I said a special prayer called Viduy. In Viduy one lists the transgressions one has made (Not specifics, it's a formula with each line covering a multitude of naughtiness).
As I went down the list, I made a mental note of how many could apply to my behavior online on occasion. I've lost my temper, baited people, fallen through on promises, lied, ignored and just generally... been ungood to people. I think this was worse here, when it was a mod-free zone.
I'm a bad person at my core. I know this. Because of this, I try to fight my Worse nature. While I feel I did a little better offline this year, I feel I really must ask for Mechilah (forgiveness) from my CBR friends. I've done this ever year for a decade now, but this in one of the few times I can think of more than one reason why I need to ask.
If I have, in any way, slighted you in this last year, even if it was not deliberate, I ask your forgiveness.
Thanks you and may we all be inscribed in The Book of Life.
