Looking back over the comments that incited my outburst, and the extremely gracious replies from Justin and Caleb, really touched me. Now that I know what you guys were doing, and the fact that I remember both of you guys have had a pretty hard week, makes me feel like a total dunderhead. (I would say something else that begins with j and ends in -ss, but it’s not HSA
) In a moment of me not being in the Spirit, I took your comments about my admittedly terrible playing style personally and lashed out. Really, I should be the one asking for forgiveness here. I’m so sorry for making such a big deal and hullaballoo over something as trivial as a mafia game. What I said about you guys isn’t true – from what I’ve seen on HSD, both of you seem to be young men of character.
Having said that, I still think my presence in this game is not doing the good side any favors. So I’ll learn my lessons from this game (mainly, to not be overly speculative and accusatory) and apply them for the next one so I don’t ruin anyone else’s fun.
Good Lord, I am such an idiotic fool, unworthy to bear the title of HSD moderator.
Praise the Lord that we have redemption through Him and that He looks on our pitiable state with never-ending loving-kindness.
P.S. Caleb, what happened to your brother? How can we pray for him?
Evan, you're more than forgiven. I'm, again, really sorry for anything I said that offended you.
I would like to point out that speculation, risks, and accusations are a part of the fun of Mafia, I think. While I certainly don't endorse the decision that prompted it, I had a blast defending myself in the face of Marina's (baseless) allegations. Sometimes we're wrong. I totally threw out a theory that Hunger Games characters were involved that I would still be pursuing if Effevescent hadn't shot it down </3. So... don't feel bad. We all learn and mess up (except anorton, the mafia aficionado), and that's what makes it fun.
And speaking of mistakes, they're not just limited to mafia games. I should know. I make a lot of them on a daily basis.
So it's cool.
And again, I'm really sorry that I made you feel unwanted. :/
Thank you for your apology, btw.
It means a lot.
As for Caleb, praying for your bro right now. Hope everything is okay.
