A point of clarification [Jun. 6th, 2009|12:31 pm]
The shit-flipping that I did last night? That was completely *my* shit-flipping. It was what upset *me*. Ferrett's reasons for deleting his journal were not my reasons for flipping out.

Here are his reasons, from him:

I really didn't want to do this, but I'm making one brief announcement here.

I'm not upset by people who stay on the attack. In the incident in
question, which I really would have preferred not to be blown up into
something bigger than it was, the issue was not the folks who were angry
enough to shut down dialogues. (And they weren't particularly bad, either,
mostly civil.)

I was upset by the people I cared about who were hurt.

The issue is that I'm tired of making posts that say the exact opposite of
what I feel. I'm tired of hurting people who don't deserve it. I'm tired
of saying things which, due to poor wording or misguided humor or whatever
other numerous flaws I have, manage to keep kicking good, wonderful people
in the heart.

Over the past sixteen months, I've been dealing with the increasing feeling
that my journal is just a place that serves to make me look like a fool,
foster opinions I don't stand behind, and injure people. I'm starting to
hurt every time I hit the "post" button, wondering what asshole thing I'll
missay this time. And just when I think I'm okay, I screw up again.

My goal is, and has always been, to promote harmony, peace, love,
acceptance, and tolerance. I just wish I could do better at that. And I'm
sorry that I don't.

You do promote lots of stuff.

Like nothing is white or black you have done good things with your journal as well as the bad.

Never forget that unfortunately the good often goes uncommented on while the bad gets lots of air time and forum posts.

The quiet happy lurkers who read and enjoy your writing are legendary and numerous but sadly silent.

Either way you should do what is best for you. Take our comments and words into account but at the end of the day it's your choice and your decision. You are not our puppet or monkey and you do not exist to please us nor dance to our tune.

*hug* I hope you do come out from this in a better and happier place. No matter what happens there were lots of good times and good entries and you have definitely made a positive and serious difference in my life.

Be well my friend.
