this is just way too incestuous
you and tim've slept with the same chick?
george and matt slept with the same chick??

roflol--all y'all need to start dating *outside* the circle.

wow - yes tasteless.

and I'm so glad I'm not a part of that chart...

Hmm, when I was younger this is what we referred to as "a close-knit circle of friends." ;)

Now we just call it a poly network.

well, this doesn't really bother me - the chart didn't show a timeline either, it is not like we were all sleeping with the same people at the same time - chronology actually would exclude certain connections, but reinfocre others.

i find it damn ironic that someone could bitch and moan about the way the government is killing our privacy, and then completely not understand why someone would be offended when he goes and posts aspects of your private life on the internet...

left hand, do you see what the right hand is up to?

splitting hairs
the problem is not so much that they kill our privacy - anyone can do that, people do it all the time. it is the fact thet they have the unlimited power to do so, without repercussion, or any hopes of change as a result of that act.

in this situation, you are offended what you term "private" information, so i removed it.

your later post suggests class was involved - class has nothing to do with privacy, and, imo, little to no place on the internet, which is really jsut a big bathroom wall.

Re: splitting hairs
if it's a big bathroom wall, it's simply because some ruffians allow it to be so. class has nothing to do with privacy, no - class has a lot to do with what dirty laundry you do and don't air in public.

it isn't right of you to replace something that offended us with an insult to your friends for being offended in the first place.

since I wasn't a part of this chart, and am rather indebted to you for use of some computer hardware at the moment, I understand that you might take exception to my comment (ad personam - don't do it..). You are all my very good friends so I feel justified in weighing in on this, and it is also only through dumb luck on my part over the years that I wasn't included in the first place. Taking offense to that chart has nothing whatsoever to do with personal shame -- it is only pointing out that you overstepped your bounds by invading the privacy of your friends. This could have been finished with and my feelings on the matter needn't have been made public had you not included such a passive agressive comment along with your retraction. This was less than an apology - if anything, you exacerbated your original insult.

I really don't want to start a flame-war here, I just want to make you realize that this time you made a mistake. please don't let your pride bait you into injuring all of our interpersonal relationships further. I know you didn't mean to get on any of our bad sides. we've all stepped on each others' toes over the years.

the snipe was not directed at you, more at tim for reasons he and i tangoed on alerady.
i amended the post to be less abrasive - i was definitely not trying to cause added animosity over something people apparently found personally insulting.

i didn't think this was such a big deal, guess other people did.

Re: actually
wow, you really dont know when to quit when you're not too far behind, do you?
Feb. 19th, 2004 10:41 am (UTC)
not sure what else you want man.. post is down, and apology extended.

Re: er
actually, what i'd really like is to not continue this farce online at this point.
Feb. 19th, 2004 02:39 pm (UTC)
I understand that this was not directed at me. I just wanted to make sure you understood how this was legitimately offensive even though you wouldn't have thought so yourself.

It's always tough to keep everyone's perspectives in mind and so easy to find a raw nerve when you've known people for as long as we've all been friends.
