Posted:Basicly, I have grown and healed a great deal since I caused myself to be banned. I know what I did to get myself banned was completly disgusting and reckless. Honestly at the time I felt like my internet addiction was a serious obstacle in my path forwards, and I was so irrational I thought posting illicit pictures here was the only way to ensure I would be banned, then I evaded the ban becuse I fell back in the same rut, but the mods caught on and banned me.

Anyways, For the most part Im not going outrageously long without sleep, ive straightened out my priorities and ive learned a hell of a lot compounded into a short period of time. I am very sorry for what I did, I never gave much thought to the profound impact a handfull of illicit photo's can possibly have. I hope they didn't cause to much trouble with peoples employers, schools, family or friends and I hope no one who saw them was overly sensitive to that kind of imagery. If they did hurt someone, there is nothing I can do but say im sorry and that it wont happen again. I don't wish to change anyones opinions that were formed based on my actions, simply explain my actions and apologize.

If you object to me comeing back, simply want to bitch at me, have questions, or whatever post it here instead of hijacking someones thread.

Posted:Aster, Personally I don't want to start off saying welcome back... What you did isn't something I'm just going to roll over and forget, it's not something you can just sweep under a rug and forget about. It's not only adults that use this site. This is a world wide site, people are on here at different times of the same day. At the time of posting thoses pictures, just think, somewhere some kid may have just finished school, and "happened" to come across those pictures... and that's just one side of it. If you wanted out, just don't log in... call your internet provider and disconnect... sell your computer... take up knitting...

I'm not ashamed to admit it... I was one of those who informed the admin team of what was happening. Therefore, I saw what you were doing, and I'm sorry to say, but you lost alot of respect from myself that day.

Since you left, others have both come and gone... respectivly.

I'm sorry to anybody who feels that I am coming across as rude, or unwelcoming, and I know that some people will find this side of myself to be new. But, Aster asked for what people here felt, and that's just what I'm giving.

Aster... when I see myself that these words your saying are true... then I will welcome you...

Posted:Hey Astar,

It is good to see you here. I had contact with you in a few different threads and PMs. Always knew you as a astute person.

I also saw you get very down. And I saw you do something pretty misguided as a result of how you felt and the thought processes that went with it. The instance itself had a lot of impact, but so did the lead up to it when your pain was fairly clear.

I am glad to hear that you are doing better. Please let us know if you are ever on that track again, as we will do our best to help before it becomes that bad.


It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...

Posted:I agree with arsn.

I to am sorry to say that while i did not see it happening on the boards, the shockwave went on for a period after you had been banned.

Few banning happen for a site this large, and this reflect the naturs, style and respect of the board, you broke this when you posted those pitures astar.

Im sorry for soundsing harsh, and mean, but you did cut some of the people on here deeply, and some were my friends.

I understand (in my own perspective) of how things can spiral out of your control, and how you can go on with a plot that seeems a good idea to you, but this is why you build good friends, and relationships in your life, ppl to talk to beofre it gets to this

i will wish you a speedy and safe recovery back to full health, both spiritual mental and physical, but i will wait on teh welcome back

once again i am sorry for being "nasty" but this is my honest opinion.

Didn't see the pics or anything tooooo bad but noticed your posts degrading over time and your posts were plain nasty at one stage.

Up until then I had viewed you as a decent person and enjoyed many of your contributions here. I reckon you'll prove to be this person over time....welcome back dude. smile
