Default Apology

I like to think of myself as a star trek fan I have seen all the show/movies
read most of every book Etc
the reason I love Star trek is because of the message and the hope it gives that man can evolve from what he currently is and truly accept IDIC
I have used some of the things I have learned in Star Trek in my real life
But not everything, that is when I realized I am not a True dedicated fan
because I have ignored the biggest lesson Star Trek teaches and that is acceptance
of differences between people.
I have made comments on this board that goes against that and even though most were made in Jest I realized that with hearing the tonality of a comment it can seem quite different when just read
but even in humor it is still kind of an attack
So to all those I might have offended I am sorry it was wrong of me
We are all different and we all have different opinions and that’s what makes us individuals
I will go back to mostly reading the comments and not responding to them unless I can contribute in an open an non harmful way

Tribble the gesture is appreciated I'm sure
But IDIC isn't a religion.
I've never taken any offense at anything you said.
Infact I usually take little offense from anything anyone says.
You're okay in my perspective.

Wow....just wow.
Colour me impressed.
I cannot speak for anyone else, and you have not offended me in any way.
But your resolution and apology puts you quite a few notches above any other screaming fanboy I've had to endure.

I've said things on this board I regret as well so I appreciate your concerns. I've never been offended by anything you've written. Your apology speaks volumes about your high character.

You have never done wrong by me, but you are a good person to make amends with those you have offended. To err is human but as long as we make amends for our mistakes we grow and are better for it. For this I salute you!!

This post offends me

WHATCHA GONNA DO NOW?!



Seriously though, this may be one of the best posts on this forum. It takes serious bigness to admit the possibility of a mistake, especially on the Internet. My hat is off to you, sir.

As "Indestructible Object" can attest (see IO's recent thread at http://www.startrekmovie.com/forums/...ead.php?t=7812 for evidence,) I think you deserve the moniker taken (and not yet earned in my eyes) by someone else on this board: "Classy."

Classsy you clearly DONT get Star Trek if you are making statements like that... I pity you, dear misguided sir... as I would not want to live in a world filled with such negativity... I hope that you can overcome your rather negative views.
