A Horrible Horrible HORRIBLE post for all...

Those of you who have known me since Late '97 when I first became the 'Playa know me as a fun-loving guy. Somebody who spices up their factoids with tounge-in-cheek humor and smartaleck asides--as he always has. Someone who occasionally has to pull a crazed CP maniac off of Jeff T. and remind him/her that we're all having fun here. Who's not afraid of a sprited debate but won't hate you for it either.

It was in that spirit of URC family that I took up a thread with a certain other poster who apparently popped a gasket and recommended I perform an act I will not repeat here.

I apologize to all true URC family members who had to read his post. Of course, I didn't write it...but I thought most among us can discern what humorous banter is when they read it. I guess I will keep having fun with the fun-loving from now on.

Thanks also to other high-ranking ACE members who have apologized in behalf of said poster via e-mail even *before* this unfortunate event. I promise to go easy on each of you for a week or two :-)

I've already e-mailed Eric G. and asked him to remove any posts of mine he considers out of line. Heck, he can remove the whole thread for all I care....as long as those of us looking to enjoy the board can do so.

I look forward to hearing from all of you and seeing a few of you @ the URC PKI event.

Just read da whole string, you are both idiots. shame on c'player / furious for inciting a riot, shame on ace-whatever for using bad language. Why did you stoop so love c'player you could have avoided this. bye Ace-whatever you did have a good point originally, should have left it at that.

Just a point..... by KAZ at 4/11/00 8:00:28 PM

I can understand you and your daughters'disappointment about the height requierment. After reading all the threads, it made me think of one of my co-workers and his 11-year old daughter. He enjoys rollercoasters, but his daughter will not get on them due to his wife telling her how dangerous they are. When we go to parks together, he gets stuck taking his daughter on mild rides while myself and my wife hit all the coasters. No amount of pleading or reassurances of how safe they are has gotten her to change her mind. I think you should count your blessings that you have a daughter who loves coasters as much as you do.

STOP IT EVERYONE NOW!! Like I've said in the past, Eric G. busts his you-know-what to give us a great discussion board... For what?

ROLLER COASTERS!!

GROW UP! WHY DO YOU NEED TO MAKE FUN OF WHERE A PERSON LIVES, THEIR GENDER, SEXUAL PREFERENCE, AGE, HEIGHT, ETC., ON A BOARD INTENDED FOR THE DISCUSSION OF WHAT?????

-->ROLLER COASTERS!<--

Please, someone answer this for us all. Why? We are here to celebrate the wonderful creations that many men and women have stressed themselves to bring us so that we can have those 2 and 1/2 minutes of incredible joy and let everything go... So why the argument? Coasters bring us complete happiness! Ever been stressed to death and ride one of these things? It's one of the greatest feelings in the world! So, why? Why must we fight? Why can't we be friends here? If someone says, "Well, (coaster name here) is my favorite coaster!" That doesn't mean you have to say, "Well, I think that ride (list of insults)" Everyone is intitled to their own opinion! If it isn't anything constructive or something providing useful information, then DON'T POST! Don't make Eric do work he shouldn't and doesn't have to, okay?

Look, this is all coming from a 14 year old!! Some of you surpass me by decades (no offense intended) and you do this stuff!! This is not meant to diss or slam anyone, this is meant as an awakening for everyone on this board! Don't post stuff you know isn't right!

I am not saying I am perfect, because I have had my fair share of baloney in the past, but from now on, lets make this a more perfect coaster board!

Come on...lighten up. Don't make enemies on this board for stupid reasons. Just put this matter in your past. I can understand your anger, but grudge holding will not help. I am sorry for anything I could have said in the past to offend you. I did not mean it. We all need to remember that we have rights to our own opinion, and there is NO reason to get personal with it.

Forgive me Mike
