My Formal Apology to the MMA Community

Jaime MorenoCorrespondent IMarch 26, 2009

First off, what’s been happening in our community is really starting to bother me.  I think it’s petty and has no need on this site.  With that said I have evidently been part of the problem. 

So because I’ve been so hurtful to certain people on this site, let me say off the bat that I’m sorry.  I didn’t mean to ruffle any feathers with any of my comments but I guess that I have.

Now let me also state that for those of you who don’t like the way I write or think that I’m uneducated because I happen to misspell a word or two and sometimes just out right miss a word that may or may not be needed in my writing, I really can’t help it. 

I rarely ever speak of my problem, but I’m a bit dyslexic.  It’s not anything that I ever bring up, because now that I’m adult I’ve been able to work around it.  It creeps up at times, in regards to sentence structure however for the most part I catch my mistakes, but evidently not always. 

I’m sorry for my horrible spelling and I will work on making it better.

Now on to the person who I offended the most on this site, that being Grandma Dee.  You of all people know that you were the first writer that I ever became a fan of.  I’ve always loved your articles, and have learned a lot from them. 

The truth is reading articles like yours, and Brian Oswald's have made my writing in general much better.  As a history student, I have to write a ton and you guys make my writing more complete, so for that I thank you.

My issue with you when all this started was that I felt that you got way over heated when Jessy and Brian were only trying to give you respect and mad props.  You for some reason took offense and I took offense to you bashing two writers that I consider to be great writers and friends. 

My bad for trying to defend them, and in retrospect I should have let them take care of it themselves and not interfered.  I still think that your writing has slipped and I still challenge you to write about something not involving GSP and your hate for those who say a word against him. 

With all that said I still am very sorry to upset you.  I’m an adult and as an adult I should have given you the respect that you deserve as an elder in the world and the leader in this site.

To Jessy and Brian I’m sorry for lowering the standard that you and others have set so high.  My actions have helped to bring the community down, and with that I will refrain from writing on here for a bit. 

Consider it a self-imposed time out for my actions.  While I take this leave of absence, I’d like to tell all the readers and writers of the community to use what I and others did in the past week and use it as an example of how not to act.  Peace out.
