    I'm sure people claim I'm racist and frankly I don't care anymore. I see issues on both sides of the fence, not just one. My problem is the constant lopsided views from the LEFT who ALWAYS ignore the complete facts and / or whole truths. I promise you not one damn person in this country thinks Floyd deserved to die, but I promise you 99% of the LEFT think everyone on the right thinks that way. You don't care about the truth or reality. You let your emotions cloud your judgement and refuse to listen to reason.

    I could show hundreds, no, thousands of videos of certain people constantly resisting arrest, running, fighting, attacking, whatever. Hell, even Chris Rock made a comedy skit about it. Maybe when the LEFT admits to the whole problem instead of just focusing on the crap they need to incite racial tension, things might actually improve. Nope, instead the entire black community is teaming up with known terrorist like ANTIFA to tear the country apart. Rioting and looting, burning and destroying. Call me a racist all you want, I see the world for what it is and BOTH sides have some serious issues to deal with.

    For some reason, I thought this was a thread about DMKano deleting his account. I'm sorry to hear that. He was a good poster who brought interesting insights to many discussions. I will miss him.

    Remember, it takes TWO (or more) to argue. So I find myself wondering why one side is called disruptive and not the other...



    Thanks to @lahnmir for the hijack. <salute>
    Perhaps, in the light of current events, he didn’t want to be part of a crowd with so many, formerly hidden, racist people anymore. And I can fully understand that him getting a ban while certain others can spew their garbage uninterrupted could be the straw that broke the camels back. Just an assumption.

    Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

    People are TALKING AT EACH not listening. With listening, one is calm, listens to EVERYTHING a person says and the responds respectfully. On the internet, everyone thinks they are anonymous so they be ass-hats all the time. 

    @Rhoklaw This is especially in Political discussions. I remember reading about President Ford and Tip O'Neal having a radio show together to discuss political topics. It did get heated but they always respected each other's opinions. This is how it should be, not going off half cocked and calling people names and being disrespectful. One keeps talking about facts, well, without putting the actual facts down, links, etc. who knows if the facts are real? There is tons of noise and nonsense on the internet and it is hard to find fact from fiction.

    That said I will miss @DMkano and hope he finds peace where ever he lands.

    I know, I posted an apology further down the line. It most certainly wasn’t my intention to unleash this shitstorm. So, again, sorry.

    I saw someone the other day post (not here): "You don't have to attend every argument you are invited to.". 
    If only we weren't so intent on proving how right we are.

    I don't know what to say. I had lots of "thoughts" through this 5 page shitstorm and only made the one post. You, however, could not bide your tongue, or fingers in this case). Is your apology valid?

    I can believe in mistakes. I've made plenty myself. But you made a decision to take the time to call others racist (basically for not agreeing with your political vierws), an all too common practice these days. Multiple times you call others "disruptive" when YOU were the instigator here.

    You also followed up with many replies. So... is your apology sincere, or just trying to soothe your own guilt?

    In all honesty? Both probably. I did not want to taint a goodbye thread and it was a genuine train of thought on the reason as to why Kano left. Was it colored by my opinion and should I have shown more constraint? Yes. But I also believe that letting things slide isn’t a valid course of action in some cases, this being one of them. My first post however, I could have thought about the wording, time and place to post it a bit more.
