    I have been quite terrible around here and with my behavior have offended and cursed many around here and I have shamed mostly myself, I am sorry, I will try at least not to use swear words and be more tolerant, and I am sorry to those I have offended ( I don't want anything from you, people sometimes think if I am nice that means I want something from them )

    A tiger doesn't change it's stripes nor does a leopard change it's spots. Once an asshole troll, always an asshole troll. Now, go away!!!

    I don’t care if you forgive me or not, I don’t have to prove anything, I am doing this for me, take my apology, take the highway, I don’t care, in the end that is your decision, but those who do take my apology, thanks.

    Yes , i do agree you have offended some people , but America is the country of freedom isn't it !
    So you should be able to say what you want , you might lose respect from some of the members , but it is the right to you to express yourself !!
    That is who you are , as long you aren't physically hurting someone , your rants , slang words , swearing etc doesn't bother me at all , as a matter of fact it entertains me icon_smile.gif

    Those who can't forgive him should just keep quiet. Those who are attacking him are acting just as badly as what he apologized for.

    Bonaparts, I give you a lot of credit for saying that. Thank you. As another thread had mentioned, RJ has changed over the years
    and many of the original members have left due to bullying and insults. We come from many different age groups, viewpoints, walks of life, and countries. As long as we show respect for each other in our responses, there is no issue.

    Brock700 saidYou people are acting like this is a human being were talking about. Do you think anyone would care on RJ and IRL if he was killed in a Car accident tomorrow? I don't think so.


    That response is pathetic and really awful. Bonaparts has stated his opinions, and ok, maybe went a little overboard in some responses. But he has apologized, and I give him credit for that, he's a bigger man than a lot of people around here. Give the guy a chance.

    Bonaparts, You are being attacked by Brock700 which suggests to me that you are just fine as you are.
    But I applaud your realization that you want to communicate without being offensive, if possible.

    However there's no need to be too nice. If you've got something mean spirited to express, find an entertaining way to deliver it.
    You'll be proud of yourself and you'll give others a laugh.

    This person Bonaparts has been here in different incarnations many times. Each time he starts out trying to seem like sugar would not melt in his mouth because he is soooo sweet. Then the real Bonaparts shows it's ugly head and starts abusing people. He hate older gay people and he really hate the muslim's relocating to Europe. How some of you people can think he adds any value to this site is beyond me. He also is very racist against anyone HE doesn't like. Just go back and peruse some of his past threads and posts. He is a hateful troll and should crawl back under his rock and be covered with cement so it can not come back out.

    I can see why you would say this and I had the same opinion of him for a while. But we have made our peace and I think he's a nice guy actually. You see, sometimes it takes some people longer to learn how to express their feelings appropriately. And more importantly, which feelings should be expressed and which ones to bite your tongue over. I'm one of those people. I can't say why he does this but I can tell you my issue came from never being allowed to express any negative emotions as a kid, so once I got to be an adult I put in overtime expressing as many negative emotions as possible as a way of saying "FUCK YOU" to the world. I'm still quite outspoken to this day. So maybe he has something like that going on.....only he knows. But whatever it is, I think it's important to forgive people when they are regretful.

    But thats just it Radd, do you really think he is regretful??? He's tried this angle more than once. Do you think he now thinks older gay people are cool? Has he decided that the muslim people who are coming to Europe are cool and he want them to live with him and be his friends? I think NOT!!!

    Also I do believe that people deserve a second chance but this troll has not shown he is worthy of one. He is really nasty to anyone over the age of 25 and thinks he is the be all to end all. NOT!! He will end up just like everyone else who has ever lived on this planet and be OLD and DIE and for him to disrespect people who are older than him is just FUCKED UP

    I have no idea what his current view on those topics are. Maybe you should ask him if you want to know. All I know is when someone asks for forgiveness I usually forgive them. (although I do have a couple of exceptions for certain members here.) Forgiveness costs us nothing, except it releases hatred from our hearts. And if that person comes back to hurt us again, at least we know we did nothing to add negative energy to the situation. Just my opinion.

    And a good opinion, IMHO.

    I've forgiven guys here before, and had truces. Only to have my teeth kicked in before long. One guy was really genuine when we buried the hatchet, and that was Sharkspeare ("Sharky"), his last screen name of several he used. We met in person, used to socialize together. He met my husband, and his sister. We all got along great.

    I dunno where he went, but I miss him. Despite our earlier battles here being epic. We became almost bywords to illustrate RJ members who couldn't tolerate each other, always at each others' throats.

    So can online leopards change their spots? (Not excluding myself from that question) Sure they can. Has Bonaparts? That remains to be seen. But I wouldn't summarily dismiss it. Time will tell.
