I'd like to apologize to the board for any stress or undue mayhem I caused during the Great Lahi Spamming Debacle of 2008.

I'd also like to state that I'm turning over a new leaf. COLA is right, I have butted heads with many users in the past, and made more than a few enemies.

I think part of the reason for this is that I view forums as a place not to make friends, but somewhere to exchange ideas. I believe this lead to some early conversations being more heated than they needed to be, and grudges were formed that have lasted since then, and even led to others.

So today I'd like to start over. I apologize to BTG, Rusty, COLA, Sarge, Teefee, Jitka, and anyone else who feels slighted by me. Let's pretend none of the past arguments ever happened. I promise to be civil and apologize if I offend anyone.

If you're all willing to do the same, I think the forum can be a more pleasant place.

I'm still not here to make friends, but I don't think that precludes me from coming to respect and admire many of you.

Again, I'm sorry for all the trouble I've caused, and hope the future will be more bright than the past.

I'm waiting for "HAHAHA SIKE"

No, but seriously, thanks, lahi. I'm feeling better about giving you a second chance now after that apology.

Also, your name has the coolest color.

Pink is second though.

Pink is first, Einoo. We were trendsetters.

And I suppose that I can forgive you, Lahi. I never really argued with you in the past, though I have disagreed with some of your past actions. Nevertheless though, welcome back.

So far, I have to say I'm quite happy with everyone's replies to this.
I have fears (and a bet) that this'll disintegrate into a drama/spamfest.
Prove me wrong, people. If you do, Stu wins $5 and I'm sure he'll be grateful to you for it.

Lahi, you seem to be playing nice. If that's how you're gonna play, feel free to stay around.

Lahi, I must really salute you on this turnaround. It takes guts to come and admit a mistake, and I have to say I really appreciate it. If you continue posting like I've seen on your return trip here, I think a lot of people will be pleased, myself included. I was a little wary of seeing you come back, but you're proving my expectations wrong (which is very nice).

Keep up the good work, soldier. :)

Pretty much this.

Though I do resent you for getting the shade of blue that I wanted for your username... :p

EDIT: Thanks, whoever.

Stu Edit: no problem

See all this?

Guys, this is what our forum should be like all the time.

This includes the colored names, by the way.

I don't think I was around for your "Spamming Debacle of 2008", Lahi, I don't think I really even know what went down exactly. It obviously caused quite a bit of distress though and I can tell that some users are a bit uneasy to see you posting again. But from what I can see you are genuinely sorry, and much respect for making an honest and sincere apology. So I guess I look forward to getting to know you around the boards! :)

P.S. Beaver & Steve! Nice.

Yes, the Forum should be nice all of the time, but we'll probably go through another slump after the summer is over with.

We should pull an SI and just make a bunch of usergroups with different-colored names to join. However, these will probably get old in the near future.

Wow, that is very mature, I see you have seen the light and looked past your noobish ways. I hope you become another torch to the forum.

You do realize he's, like, 30, has a degree in typing, a family, and is political savvy, right? He's not a noob, no matter where he goes.

I take your apology with a grain of salt, pepper, and a ketchup packet, and offer my own.

For now.

I relish his apology. I think it really cuts the mustard.

Lahi, welcome back. I would just like to ask, if you see forums as a way to exchange exchange ideas, why did you come to this one? We are a forum based on a Wiki, that is based on an internet cartoon, I understand we have evolved to be more then that, but really, how serious do you expect us to be?

Sounds pretty serious to me.

I'll be honest, lahi: I don't think you deserve another chance. But I'll keep my finger away from that wonderful little edit button under your post, and I will be civil to you. But other users have gotten permabanned for a lot less than you have done, and your unban just seems to smack of favoritism. That said, if you can be civil, I'll be civil. Just my two cents here.

On the other side of the coin, there are users who got away with a lot worse before they were banned.

If you're familiar with my first posts here, I spent virtually all of time in R&P, because I saw it as a place where intelligent discussion was happening.

Yeah, right. Intelligent discussion in there... Do you not remember Rose? LOL

True, true.

IJ was not Rose, for sure.

He was all about intelligent discussion, even with people that didn't agree with him.

At any rate, I'm uneasy that you're back. I did think the initial ban was uncalled for, but the spamfest fort of made me say "well, maybe they were right". Your behavior since the unban makes me say "no, they weren't".

Like BTG, I'll believe it's you when it's football season. You post "BYU!" in the football threads more than HHFOV says "Ron Paul" in the politics ones. :-)

Hey lahi, welcome back. Although I never really got involved in what you did, I forgive you anyways. I hope everybody else is mature enough to do the same for you.

And what's this about colored usernames? Did I miss out on that too? :(

Saturday was the day of days I suppose. I could tell you about it, but I only have 60,000 characters in this post... and that's not nearly enough.

In a fit of generosity and temporary insanity, Stu handed out colored usernames to anyone who asked for one. Mine was blue. Then ramrod logged on and did away with it all, citing his color-blindness as a reason for doing so.

I have to admit that it was fun for about a day, but it was way too much. I don't have color-blindness and it was hurting my head.

You just ended it because the forum was beginning to look like Jeff Gordon's car.
