OK, I am tired of the lies! I am, of course, formerly known as markjs, and would like to be re-instated. It took you guys way longer than I would have figured to publicly accuse me of it, especially being as the only thing different was my handle and small deception. I never even attempted to be anything but myself in my postings. I wish to apologize to all of you for the deception, and all of those I offended so much as markjs, particularly fury and Gonz. This is why I never, until now, publicly said anything on the matter. I only had to directly lie to one member because at the time I was suspicious he was trying to find out for more than just his own knowledge and at the time I wasn't ready to be cast back into the void. I have to say I went through a time in my detoxing right around the one year mark where I was definitely a few cards short of a full deck. I said some things here I regret deeply, but I am still clean, going on 3 years December 8th. Thankfully I didn't damage any of my real life personal relations during that time. Things have improved for me a lot. Remember I was not just a hardcore meth head but I am bipolar. Both issues are much better these days and I am still actively involved in 12 step recovery. You see what happened is that I was just fine without this place for a long time, but I got bored one day and started reading the posts again. Then I noticed that another member, who had been banned as a result of his interactions with me, got a get out of jail free card. The right thing to do would have been to somehow ask for reinstatement too, but that isn't all of why I re-joined. It still took some time before I came back but this lunacy was the cheese that sprung the trap. I wish to state for the record that I have no hard feelings toward anyone, even the other guy who was banned and resurrected. He still bugs me but in a much more polite manner, (for him in any case) and I really could give a crap anymore anyway. So if you ban randomJACKASS there is nothing I can or will do unless I get bored again or unless you block via ip. I hope to stay on, but I'd prefer to just go back to markjs if that was possible and you could ban this one, or if you want me to bear this handle (which I like a lot anyway) is it possible to give me my entire combined post count and original join date? If that is possible I'd love it if you could do it as either user id. I could have done this by PM but I really do my best to live the program and value honesty greatly; I felt as well, that I owe everyone, not just Gonz and fury the apology. Thanks and no matter what your decision is, I wish you all be blessed with all the things in life that I want for myself. Sincerely, Mark J Sherrell OTC ROCKS!!!
