I see Zach purchased the "Nobody likes me everybody hates me" t-shirt from the same vendor as EvangelicalEvaporator.

So I guess it is easier to leave after more than a decade here than consider that one might have spurned a genuinely-offered apology.

Wow!

I've had my moments with Zach, but we worked it out on his last Hell thread. I'd be sorry to see him go if only because we need some representation of loyal yet conservative Piskies. I'm certainly loyal but not particularly conservative. [Razz]

And I do have some sympathy for those who have opinions which are under-represented here. Handling arguments gracefully when you feel like you are being carpet bombed with countering views would take some finesse and some thick skin. There are people here who have that finesse in spades. And some just have skin like tough old leather. Either way, some who are passionate about their views and yet are sensitive can have a hard time of it and even misconstrue things at times. Some don't flounce but just quietly leave for the most part, just popping in to make a brief appearances on occasion. That makes me rather sad.

So, Zach, this isn't "begging" for you to reconsider, but I do hope that you will think of this as a break and not a flounce.

By saying I was being silly, I had meant to imply that I was being silly to not accept the apology offered. Sorry for not making that clearer.

I'm not going to stick around defend my decision to move on from the ship, but I do want to make that clear.

Yes, that is a much less childish reaction. Mature, even. Balanced. Our tiny little heads may explode from the sheer quantity of our newfound respect for your insight and equanimity.

Take a breather, think in a more relaxed environment about how you can take all the bastard down with your brilliant Calvinist arguments, then come back. Simples.

Technology has brought us all closer together. Turns out a lot of the people you meet as a result are complete idiots.

Yes you were - but surely that's not a reason to leave? Especially as you say this community really has been important to you over the years.

There is far more to the Ship than Hell - just hang around All Saints, heaven and the circus for a while. Then, when and if you are ready, come back for a bit more purgatory and hell fire [Smile]

Hell hosts know this more than most. If we didn't get fluffy in Heaven and play silly games in The Circus (or Purgatory, if the mood takes us) we couldn't host Hell.

Flounces in Hell bring out the very worst in me, and that is very bad indeed.

I missed this earlier. The best part of this thread in my read of it just now. And also because [i]Heathers[i] is so great.

I happen to like Karl and Zach both. Both contribute. Both say things I like and dislike. So can we all fuck each other with chainsaws about now? It's all just so very.
