Is this thread...meaningful?

This is a follow-up to my most recent messages. I would like to request that all read, and not take any negative emotions from this, and regard this from as neutral and wide of a perspective as possible.

 

For start-up, I would like to say that the SAMB is probably known as a small, less-populated, diverse, and...weird (in a good way :D) culture. This small population usually makes it so that we, about the 22 SAMBers last I checked, know each other relatively well, as well as what we each like to see and dislike to see, what jokes we like, and many of the facts that make each of us whom we are.

 

As most of us probably already know, we've had a bit of a population surge. As cringey as this sounds, the WoFMBers are our honored guests at the moment. They're SAMBers as well, if they decide to stay, which I certainly hope they do.

 

But with population increase comes a few factors that need to be considered. Like I already addressed, we all know each other, right? But as well as we do, sometimes we accidentally make a mistake...or should I call it a mishap? We say something we didn't think someone else would get offended by. That "someone else" might be someone we've known for a long time, or someone we just met. We think it's perfectly fine, humorous, innocent, whatever--but we each, behind this screen, have our own preferences, from our identity, background, culture, et cetera, et cetera. Something completely what we didn't mean to even imply might be seen as something else, and in this case I mean negative in particular. Then the situation gets out of control. Something that wasn't supposed to happen happened, and we don't know what to make of it. We couldn't have even seen what happened, or what could have happened.  

 

We're diverse and different in our own ways. We have our own personalities, appearances, habits, personal preferences, and interpretations that others may not see out of it. If we only look at our own preferences, instead of thinking about others', we're easily insulted. It's that simple, for me to see at least. We feel bad. We react, and we make others feel bad.

 

Now, I feel like I forgot to mention this, but "we" is indefinite.

 

Anyhow, the final message I really want to convey in this is that we have the need to adjust to others' personal preferences as well as our own. If one sees something insulting in something...please do voice out your concern, but not in a way that may be entirely definite. I know some things are definitely...definite (excuse that, please). For instance, racial slurs, racial jokes, insults to someone and their being in general. Those threads are reported and removed, right? But somewhere, where there isn't any malicious intent, please just...voice your concern in an accepting way? And if those concerns are voiced, respond in an equally accepting way as well? Conflicts cannot be started from one side, not to say, they cannot arise from nothing.

 

...And if anyone takes offense from my words, please tell me. I would like to change towards the better as well.

1. Yes, hecking meaningful thread right here EVERYONE READ IT BEFORE I BRING OUT THE MARSHMALLOW CANNONS AND YOU DON'T WANT ME TO DO THAT

2. Addressing the title, everyone has a tendency to accidentally insult others. It happens to all of us. Also, this is the most mature, neutral, not-in-the-least-offensive thread that I have ever seen.

3. Hopefully people listen to the message in your post and I will do my best to do the same. Because I've done my fair share of picking fights

Look. I get it, I made a mistake, ok? I'm really sorry about that. I truly am. I never really meant to insult the WoFMBers, and I know people like Fallon and Wizard probably hate me now even though I didn't directly fight with them, and I feel bad about that. I wish I could've made a better impression, but no, me being the idiot I am I decided to start an argument and make it feel like they weren't welcome, so now I pretty much have no way of becoming friends with them, which SUCKS FOR ME BECAUSE I CVEGVBXUHQML AND CAN'T MAKE FRIENDS I JUST CAN'T.

@Arl No! I'm not trying to patronize you. This is towards everyone. I know you're sorry and didn't mean to make a mistake. What this was meant for was for more chances for all of us to be friends. Please understand? You're my friend and I would never do anything to make you upset.

@Arl

Hey. It's okay. Everyone makes mistakes. And I know for a fact that Galaxian didn't make this post to call anyone out. Anyway, you're sorry for the things you said and that's what matters. I'm sure they'll forgive you, and if not, well, that's their business. That doesn't change anything, because you'll always have me and everyone else here and we love you very much. I know you've been through a lot so I'm going to say it again: we love you like family and that's never going to change.

This is all to true. But sadly, it's all just a part of human nature. Not that I'm trying to be pessimistic or anything, it's just that everyone will make these mistakes, offending people and saying insensitive things intentionally or unintentionally…

Of course, every person in the world will need to learn how to move on with what they or others may have said (I haven’t yet, that’s for sure XD. There are things I did five years ago which still haunt me at night), and it’s hard to do.


Everyone makes mistakes, it's just a matter of addressing ours and others in a respectful way to ensure that conflict is avoided, like you have already touched on in this post.  


@Arl- Although I don't know what was said, but I'm sure you'll be forgiven. After all, we all make mistakes, as I'm sure Fallon and Wizard know, and the effects of whatever was said will pass in time.

@Arl: Please don't think that Wizard and I hate you, though I can't speak for Wizard, but you didn't insult me in any way. Don't feel bad about it, you were just being honest. But I don't hate you and would like to know you better as a friend, here on the SAMB, and on the WoFMB whenever.

Forget all this stuff that I usually put here. The forums are ending so no one cares what's supposed to be here.

 

But this is what I want you all to remember: Be kind. You will have everything in life if you are kind.

 

Love you all.

This is really cheesy but:

 

Thank you guys so much. I really appreciate your kindness, you're all the best people I know. It's just-- insane, I'm really lucky to have all of you. I have no idea what prompted me to go into all caps run-on sentence mode on my first post of this thread lol. Fallon, I'm glad you don't have a pre-made bad impression of me.
