[Noisebridge-discuss] On a more serious note: a personal statement to NB Discuss

I've recently received an email from an individual who was kind enough to
provide me proactive suggestions in the way I go about communicating with
people on the discuss list. I want to formally apologize if anything I've
said has personally offended or upset anyone over the discuss list. Minor
trolling is OK here and there; being an asshole is not. I aspire to be a
noble person, and I can only say on my behalf is that like everybody else,
I have really bad days and asshole tendencies, and more than half the time
I'd like to give people the benefit of the doubt that I'm not really
serious and to take what I say with a grain of salt. But after reading what
people have been saying about myself and people who I consider to be my
friends on the "85" page, in addition to my perception of destructive and
harsh criticism towards me in person, I'm openly admitting that it's sort
of starting to take its toll on me and I'm also publicly admitting that I
feel kind of hurt and offended by all of the cruel things people have to
say about me, my friends, or hell why stop there, people I don't even know,
better yet people I do know and actually don't like. It's so easy for
people to be irrational and fulfill their needs for temporary self
satisfaction, yet it's a lot more difficult for people to be rational and
fulfill their needs for a lifelong experience of success in whatever it is
that they do. I feel that all of this public defamation might have a lot to
do with why I have been acting so strange and distant lately, or why I've
been randomly lashing out over the internet or in person. I do however
value this space quite a lot, and by no means do I want to say I'm
"emo-quitting" Noisebridge because a handful of people want to go ahead and
be jerks; the amazing and awesome people significantly outnumber them. It's
important for me to express that I don't want to give into what these
assholes (they're not "oogles", they're assholes) have to say about me,
because all that will lead to is me starting to behave and act just like
one of them, and reallllllly, is that who I really want to become? A
miserable troll queen? Didn't think so... Besides, I have a great abundance
of information along with ideas that I would like to share and add to the
Human Resources binder that I'm pretty confident will positively benefit
this already profound hackerspace and how I factor into it. Everyone here
is really good at doing something, or really enjoys doing certain things,
and HR and all of its field-related topics are things I was sort of born to
do, and Noisebridge is entirely in need of it. I'm actually really excited
about this because I'm going to make it happen, and people who come here
all the time will be totally grateful for it, that I can promise you. It's
a marvelous phenomena when perspicacious individuals like myself finally
stop wallowing in that great void of vulnerable uncertainty and realize a
purpose/opportunity within their life and actually go for it. With that, I
conclude by saying I really do need to take Miloh up on his suggestion in
getting a blog, and thank all of you for listening to/reading my
meaningless rants. I'm actually quite surprised how many people have
already said to me that they do.
