    Say anything you like about me. Right here. I won’t delete or modify a single comment or quote. I probably won’t even respond. I don’t have the ego to police something like a TG wall post.

    Hey everyone!

    Recently I was asked by a member why I had attacked them. It was after a disagreement on an adjudication thread that not only was unrelated to the submission at hand, but also was something I viewed as a simple disagreement and not an attack.

    With that in mind, ...
