Thank you, I appreciate that. Unfortunately, I am unable to walk anymore.

My sin was over advertising on the list, I will take that. Oh, and
arguing with an arrogant asghshole. Otherwise, it was others. I can't
control the actions of other people. They did what they did.

As far as the 12 year old douche bag, don't worry about my association
with him. When I came home and I was catching up on the list and I
read his "disassociation" email, I felt this sharp pain in my back,
and I realized that Mr. Cordially just stabbed me in front of all of
the relay operators. It's all good though, I was able to stop the
bleeding and continue catching up on the list.

Yes, I understand that, which is why I went silent after I was told to
stop advertising.

It's not a competition to get the fastest speeds from a box, the most nodes (maybe a personal goal, being mindful of operator percentages) or anything else. We're just here for the bigger cause.

I mainly sent my email to explain my absence for the past couple of
months. I apologize that it offended all of the operators. Since y'all
are so easily offended by my email explaining my absence shall I just
take my shit down and do something else?

I don't give a shit about the 'Look at me' circus. Previously, my main
goal was to get more FreeBSD nodes on Tor, and it turned into a 'Look
at me' shit show, I'll admit that, but I was no part of that. I
thought that was a respectable goal.
