Sincere Apologies not accepted, what to do...

So, as many of you may know, I am a complete, and total smarta$$.
I enjoy arguing with, and systematically destroying the arguments of others.
A couple of weeks back, I was involved in an embittered battle of words with another C5'r.
The guy is a young man, with strong opinions, and I used that opportunity to try to talk to him. After it became clear that he had not interest in a fair discussion, I decided to eviscerate him.

After doing so, I logged back in on the following Monday to find that the powers that be had deleted the thread.
Not frozen it, but rather had it erased from existence


That had not been my intention.
I was having fun. I was bored at work. I was doing something that I do very well.

So I sent a PM to the Op.
I sincerely apologized.
I said I was sorry, and that it was my fault, lesson learned.

Then two weeks go by, I had almost forgotten about it.
Then I get a nasty PM back from the Op.
basically his PM says that he doesn't believe my apology.
Hmmm. Well, I did apologize, and I did mean it.
I wonder though if anyone else involved also apologized to him.
It was also two weeks ago, and Op is still all Agro about it...

What to do, what to do...

If someone can't get over a little hazzing via the internet then they are in for some serious psychological problems in the future and should schedule a psych consult ASAP.

I agree with you, I had seen it as all in good fun.

However my behavior directly contributed to the Op's thread getting deleted so I apologized.

Funny thing is that, not only did he basically refuse to accept my apology, he was real snotty about it, and then blocked me so I couldn't send him another PM explaining how sorry I truly was.
Very mature on his part.

You apologized. You meant it. It's on him. There's only so much you can do after doing something wrong. Sometimes apologies won't be accepted, and such is life.

It's the internet, some people can't get over what is said here. If they can't then they have a problem. Don't worry about it, if the mods didn't issue any infractions it couldn't have been that bad.

It is what it is man. You stepped up and apologized, not much else can be done. I agree with angrybird.

Thanks guys, I appreciate it.
I was feeling kind of down because the guys thread did get deleted.
I did man up.
Just trying to do what's right.

Hey may bitter at the world because he just found out that the trophy he got back in t-ball was for participation, not for being the great athlete his mom told him he was.

Some people grew up in a world that never let them develop a sense of humor, irony or sarcasm. And due to that they will never have a thick enough skin to take some razzing with a grain of salt.
you apologized, you meant it, moving on.

Sorry I was taught if you feel like you did something wrong you should apologise for your actions. It's up to the person you apologise to to accept it or not. By saying you never apologise for anything you are saying you are never wrong about anything. That sure is arrogant and untrue. Nobody is right 100 percent of the time.

Well,
the Mods have gotten back to me. At least the mod who deleted the thread in question.
He told me he did it, and why he had to do it.
I'm cool with that, it wasn't even my thread.

What really rubbed me the wrong way was that in the PM from the guy who's thread was deleted, he said "Don't bother responding, I don't care what you have to say."

Seriously? Is he a five year old girl?
I have a five year old niece and that is exactly what she sounds like when she argues.
I mean, I didn't steal your child and sell it on the black market, I didn't raid your 401K and steal your life's savings, I didn't key your Camaro.

All I did was respond to a guy who was way too emotional, and also was convinced that his opinions were somehow superior to the opinions of others. Additionally, this same guy also had trouble recalling facts, and serious difficulties with proper grammar and syntax, so I had to hammer him.

My contrition was sincere, however this will not stop me from engaging in the same manner during future events.

You have done what a man does when they think they have wronged another.

I liked the reference regarding Tee-Ball. You must make sure everyone thinks they are a winner. Sometimes I think that some on here with their grammar and spelling graduated all the way up to 5th grade. When I went to school you "Graduated" from the 12th grade. The other's you just completed. (or not)

My point being, attitudes reflect what we have learned in this world, some just have not learned as much as others. Perhaps I should even qualify this more by saying that quality of education trumps quantity. Some will understand this, some wont.

Absolutely.

Especially when you are trying to make a legitimate, and valid argument.
Should you not understand that basic grammar, punctuation, and syntax can, and often does, literally change the meaning of what you wrote.

I for one enjoy Spartan humor and enjoy reading an embittered battle! Some people need to be smacked with big words that they have to look up! Some people make statements that need to be further embellished! That it how we can learn things and form an opinion, even if it is different, from what you first thought. I see more butthurt in the future! Carry on Spartan01!!!
