An apology to the Eurofurence community
« on: 19.10.2006, 01:27:20 »

It is very clear to me that I behaved badly at Eurofurence this year, having enjoyed far too much of the fine German wine that is prudent.  I understand, too, that nobody was willing to say to me, "You've had enough, it's time to stop now," because of my perceived "status."  Status does not excuse rude behavior.  I was a poor guest and I am deeply sorry.

No member of the community must ever be afraid to tell me -- or anyone else, for that matter -- that it is time to stop drinking.  In my case, however, I offer my personal assurance that such a thing will never be necessary at Eurofurence again.

*hugs*
Although I did not see anything of those behaviours you told about, I think it is a very fine gesture from you to apology and showing how much you care. :) I am really sorry you apologized that often in public now, and somehow there was no real feedback. But I think it's just the usual laziness, and not because people are mad with you now.

We love to see you at EF, and I couldn't imagine a Eurofurence without you any more. :) There are so many positive and amazing things you were part of, you brought so much joy to the people... I think that counts much more than 1 or 2 things that were... well, maybe not that gentleman-like. I think that happens to everyone of us sometimes (...only if you're popular, people will put much more attention to it...).

I hope there will never be a Eurofurence without you. :) Thanks for the apology and caring. And I think I can speak for the whole core team, that we always want to have you at EF.

I just have to second everything Tani wrote... 't was first ef ever and you were one of the people that made it unforgetable - in a positive way. I didn't notice anything rude in you behaviour, I even thought it was mostly show and not you being really drunk ;D... (what I saw, that is ;))
