For the record, the post I made yesterday was in relation to somethings which happened in my own journal, not someone else's. Don't make me out to be all noble and stuff where I'm not - I don't tend to fight other people's battles for them.

It also isn't related to just one person (there are at least two), or any one topic either. It's a long story, but it's my story, and I'd appreciate it if you wouldn't make it someone else's. It's my journal, after all. Stop reading if it offends you.

I'm not getting involved in other people's politics; I hardly know about what is going on outside my own life. My life is shit enough right on my own, and I have no real interest in being dragged into the mire of other people's (quite important and far-reaching) problems.

I just don't want my conscience niggled any more for stuff I did many years ago - that's it. I'm sorry to all folks who thought I was talking about them, because I wasn't. I'm too selfish for all of that, and my life revolves around me. Selfish, selfish me.

I'm not taking sides, I'm just looking out for myself. Because I am a selfish person.

It is always about someone other than yourself if there is no context. People always make stuff about themselves.

For my part, I just agreed with your concept of anonymous posts, and I thought you put the case very well, be it your LJ or someones reply to your comment in someone elses LJ - personally, I put them in the same basket. You got a lot of support for the ideal. Just thought I would get that straight.

Pre-emptive apologies from me in case I did anything wrong.

Bah, it's fine. No-one did anything wrong, really, I just don't like being taken out of context. Maybe I chose a bad time to rant about a few people from my past trying to make me feel bad about stuff I did when I was 16-19, but you know, such is life. My main concern is the wrong people feeling chastised by what I have to say. When I get snippy, it's a bit of a shot-gun effect I'm afraid. But you're fine.

It would be a braver world, a braver loving world, to live in...

Sigh. Idealistic, aren't I?

You say it like it's a bad thing...

I first parsed this as a beaver world...

hmmm, not enough caffine - or perhaps too much, whose to know. :)

And people say I have a filthy mind...
