Just my thought but I feel he's being sincere about this..... and obviously isn't going the route that so many people decide to take with their ban-appeals (...STLcards...LethalNFS...)
Yes, it may not be the BEST
idea to speak about your love (or hate) for deanK but people shouldn't live in fear because somebody else (general or authority user) has an alternative opinion of said person. and I KNOW
people are scared to say what they think because other people continuously jump down people's throats and belittle/berate/judge others' actions.
Be known though that there is a lot of hate for DeanK now in the community (especially here). It is a really thin line though sometimes deciphering between bullshirt and not bullshirt. Unless you really are wearing a shirt with a bull on it...
I don't know @Benzonia
personally, but I don't necessarily think he's doing things on purpose. But maybe I am still the gullible, naive and ever trusting person I usually am. Could be this, could be that. Just my thought.
