Hi y'all. I wanted to start another topic to rectify the past and bring light to the issue in a more productive way. While I respect David's choice to shut down my last post, I still believe in the thesis of what I was saying. That being said, the thread got ugly and I gave into that type of behavior. I will not be using any quotes from the thread in future endeavors. 

I have contemplated posting again since my post got permanently closed. I have come to the conclusion that posting is in fact worth my time as a former policy debater. Although my last post was met with disgust by most, there were a select few who took the time to convey their thoughts with empathy. These few members gave me hope that K and policy debaters can find common ground. This post is simply to start a dialogue on ways to relate as debaters and empathize with one another. Please no bullying. 

Silencing is bad regardless of your opinion on the K controversy. So please, think first.

I like how the topic title says that you're sorry and the topic content is finger wagging. 

I say this as someone who didn't participate in that thread at all.

Really? But I do like the idea that we can come together! Do you have any suggestions. Also, Please dont go after me. Lets find a way to resolve this.

I was cautioning contributors to shy away from bullying... Suggestion wise, I also would like to find a resolution. I think a community-wide conversation is needed. wbu

No. I understand the urge to pick at scabs, but you need to resist it. There is no reason to think this thread would be different than the previous one. I agree some people were rude to you when they should not have been, but you're being unreasonable. You've moved into rudeness yourself.

You haven't put anything of substance into this new thread. That is a bad way to start a dialogue. To clarify, this is not a request that you post something you believe has substance that we might have a productive conversation. It's an assertion that while this conversation might need to happen, your behavior doesn't indicate you're capable of making it happen. That would require someone exceptional, and although I think we need such a person, you are not them.

From the perspective of an outside observer, it looks like you are in the wrong.

If you really want to apologize, then apologize without pointing fingers and maintaining your original standpoint.  What you did is what someone would do who doesn't want to apologize at all.

It seems like you started the entire "K vs Policy" cock fight.  You may think you're trying to help people find common ground, but they already had common ground until you started this whole thing.  So you have no inherency, if you know what I mean.
