    It's been a while, and all I can say is - I am ready for this year to be over. There are days when it feels as if 2016 never ended. And, unlike people with cable, I don't have the comfort of "The Mandalorian" and the Baby Yoda. :(

    Dude. You're projecting a lot here that just further makes my point . For example, I don't feel bad for @skribs. He's an adult. I'm sure he's fine.

    The comments I have made have been entirely around your seeming inability to see that you were central to his leaving. It's like cutting off your finger and saying later, "I sure do miss that finger. If only it hadn't mysteriously left my hand."

    If you think I'm advocating for safe spaces or anything do with words folks use, you're missing the point completely. Rather, I'm just talking about simple cause and effect, and your lack of accountability in it. As in, he said if you kept it up that he would leave. You chose to keep it up. He left. That you miss him without acknowledging your role in his departure is noteworthy.

    You're getting frustrated, but remember, I'm just doing for you what you did for @skribs.

    Baby Yoda is cute but Mandolorian needs to get better. The last few episodes are not great and it seems like the characters are getting flatter and more superficial, and plot is nonexistent.

    While it's still worthy of being called hair it can stay.

    I'm not going to cling to leftovers in a deluded fashion though...

    Actually, @Steve is the only person that I feel has done anything. What he did was validate my feelings instead of belittling me for having them. You don't have to agree with them or the way I handle them, but to just toss it out as unimportant because nobody else thought it was important was the problem.

    It was something that was important to me, even if it wasn't important to anyone else (or if it was important, it was important in the other direction). But everyone in the thread didn't treat it like that. They tried to make me feel like my opinion mattered less because nobody cares. That was the jist of the argument that made me leave.

    Steve is the only guy I've seen since that recognized that I felt strongly about the issue, and that the pushback I got felt more personal than a difference of opinion. Nobody in that thread tried to understand it from my perspective. Nobody seemed to care when someone went out of his way to bully me (by doing to me what I said I consider offensive). Everyone was so concerned with proving me wrong, nobody even bothered to see it from my perspective.
    (Actually there are a couple of people in there that absolutely believe it was personal, and they egged it on in order to get rid of me).

    Steve, whether or not he agrees with me, whether or not he cares about me, at least sees what went wrong in that thread and how I was treated.

    I never got the comb over. Especially when it is that thin.

    Dude... hilarious, truly hilarious. Baiting me never works. I acknowledged, you refuse to accept it. I am the one who initiated the comment in attempt to mend fences for everyone involved.
    If you want me to get on my knees and beg forgiveness, I assure you it is a waste of time. I did nothing anyone should feel sorry for.
    You just refuse to acknowledge my intent was different from what you think. Which is what? That I guilted myself into making the comment? Seriously, that is egotistical on your part.

    What your intent is has gotten vague but, in the spirit of this conversation, 'ouch, you are hurting my feelings; I wish you would go home and leave me alone'.
    Really, aren't we more adult that this?

    oh brother. I don’t think you posted anything out of guilt. That would suggest you’re self aware enough to feel guilty.

    I don’t expect or want you to do anything, certainly not to beg for anything.

    My intent is the same as always. If you would listen, and not just hear, I’ve been pretty direct.

    Shaving my head was the best thing I did. I only go to the barber now for a beard trim, and an occasional head shave (which my wife calls my spa day)

    Friendly reminder to keep conversations polite and friendly. I don't want to have to put my mod hat on.
