Hi. As everyone may already know I often advocated for return of older characters, cutting back on character replacing and defending Original series or characters from that era a lot.
I don't blame anyone who may have formed negative opinion about myself being viewed as some "rabid fanboy", "person which is stuck in past" etc and my offensive approach and tendency to argue didn't helped this either.
However truth is far from it. I just can sometimes be passionate in expressing my beliefs wanting to go into detail over why I think something may be viable idea or thoroughly explaining reasoning behind disagreement with someone. Along with being highly opinionated and firm in my beliefs person.
Looking back though, I realized how sometimes my actions did more harm than good going far as turning people away from posting, causing annoyance and frustration from opposing side unintentionally contributing partially toward negativity from which current anime section suffers. And there are actions for which i regret of making in past because I should have been more considerate of other people opinions, how they feel about something and not be so defensive of some characters or views I have about them.
Especially in Misty's case, since I often argued over her role, whether she was good character, was her growth for better or worse or should she return having potential for revival.
Granted when you often hear your favorites being downplayed and talked about in negative light, when at times disinformations are spread around and in general discussions about her flow negatively you can feel need to defend characters you like, correct someone if he got facts wrong and be adamant of expressing your disagreement. Getting myself get carried away in heat of debate.
But that's no excuse because there's a place and time for everything and you can carry out your support for some character or series and display your disagreement in more lighthearted, respectful manner instead of giving out impression of being forceful and intrusive over your opinions. Along with not jumping on every ball sometimes letting things go , especially in threads inappropriate for it.
So I would just like to give sincere apology to every member from Bulbagarden in here who was annoyed, agitated or bothered by actions from my side. Who lost interest in discussing certain topics because of me and any negativity or bad atmosphere my debating and arguing have caused in past.
No one is perfect and I'm aware of my bad habits being part of issue in Bulbagarden anime section becoming unpleasant, stale place. But I decided to turn over new leaf contributing in this place becoming more relaxed, peaceful and friendly in discussing things without people feeling pressure, fear or fretfulness when discussing things and posting out their opinions.
