Title: Don't post while drunk, Just a warning
Post by: boulderbrewer on March 31, 2011, 04:03:36 AM
I posted some derogatory comments about a friend, that I have known for over 5 years. It reflected badly on myself and the AHA. When you are drunk posting is not great idea. Please think before you hit the return button. Nothing good will happen from this, trust me.

You will be judged by what you have posted.

I know I will be judged, but don't let yourself be judged.

Drunk posting is a bad thing to do. Trust me.

Euge, thank you!

Signed the biggest ass on the planet.

At least you're able to own up to it. Kudos to you for that.

Don't beat yourself up over it. Forgive and forget is my motto.

What I said was bad, even worse I relied on the Moderators to clean up my mess. I was an ass don't you be an ass and hope others will clean up for you. I owe all the moderators a thank you. Maybe they should have let what I posted through and used me as an example. This is why you should not post drunk. I have been forgiven, but I want everyone that is my place to think before you post.

Even if you post there are great men and women who will ask you if that is really what you want to post? I'm in awe of these poeple, thanks euge.


I want to than the Moderators, I promise I will NOT DO THIS AGAIN.

I"M SUPPRISED YOU WOULD WANT ME AROUND, I don't derserve it. I hope to be an asset not an ASS.

Contrition is one thing, but living it is another thing.

Godbless you all.

Hey it's all good man. I knew it was a PUI gone bad. ::)

You're manning it up. Lot of people wouldn't. Won't.

Good for you for owning up to it.  I just hope you've straightened things out with your friend.

Now forgive yourself, because I'm sure the few of us who saw it already have.  No worries, really.  Really. :)

Forgive your friend and yourself and move on. We are all familiar with each other on this forum and feel a tight bond. It's unfortunately too easy sometimes for us to want to communicate our feelings especially when our judgment is impaired  along with reduced inhibitions. Sometimes it's tempting but, there are ways around it. If you are imbibing while on a forum and you feel yourself getting a little more than tipsy, log off and set the log in timer for say 15 or 20 minutes and forget about it. Or you can shut down your pc, unplug or whatever, the time it takes to startup, log on etc and you think you want to say something online it'll give you time to cool down and think about it. Instead, try grabbing a beer related book or magazine and focus on another subject or go out to your brewery and clean that keg, kettle, bottles or anything else that you've been putting off. HTH's .

+1 to what all have said, it's ok..... forgive him and yourself, and recognize the learning & blessings in taking it on as you have.

we all overindulge occasionally, forgetting how powerful alcohol can be. it's been noted on this forum many times what a great group of folks homebrewers are. it never ceases to amaze me that despite the many people drinking much alcohol at our NHC gatherings (and homebrew club meetings, competitions, events, etc) there are almost zero 'drunk' incidents. homebrewers seem to be happy drunks rather than combative or violent ones. this is good  :)

I wondered what that was about at the time.
Good to see you are back.

 So glad you're back man! Thought you jumped ship. No hrm no foul. We've all done things we wish we hadn't. I think most of us here know each other well enough not to let one incident get in the way of a good friendship. Takes a hell of a man to fess up like you did. Knuckles to you for that, my brother.  8)

Anyone who hasn't done something they regret while drinking just isn't remembering.  It all depends on how you deal with it afterwards.  Man up, fix it, get over it, don't make the same mistake twice.  Any fair person will give you a pass once if they see that.

Dang, I missed the hubub. Oh well. I'd forgive you if I knew what I was forgiving, and forget what I wasn't there to remember, but I can't so instead I'll offer my eternal understanding and appreciation of drunken ramblings past and future.  ;D

good apology marc, but so long as the offendee (euge?) and you have squared up, all is good here - takes a good man to issue a public mea culpa, and you've done that so let's move on to talking about our shared love of beer!

guess I missed the hoopla when I took a break from the forums for a few weeks, see what happens when I leave you guys alone  ;D?

This is what's cool about being guys here. With. Two men, crap can go down, it gets talked out, and tbeer is drank by said parties, and then a couple dirty jokes told, and all is right in the world again. If this happened with a couple women, on a knitting board, I bet the internet would be shut down by now! LOL no offense to any ladies here, just a difference between men and women. Not saying it's good or bad, just pointing it out.  ;D

I'm hopeful things will be on the up and up now. I think we all can learn from this and chalk it up as a learning experience. Let's try to put this one to bed and move on.

All PUI charges are dropped...You've been officially released on the first offenders program.  ;)

Cheers.

I post a lot when I have been drinking. But its usually sad attempt at humor. Come to think of it, its usually a sad attempt at humor when I'm sober too.

Glad everything worked itself out. Boulder, you're a good guy and we enjoy having you around. So don't be too hard on yourself.

  Same here. My humor sucks, only funny to me. I say real stupid things sober but when imbibing I get real smart and philosophical like. Like right now.

  I can't play a guitar sober either but can play like Lynyrd Skynyrd after several hours of homebrew, just ask Ms. Tubercle ::)

 Drinking can change a man.

hmmmm, there's sumpin here, but I just can't figure it out. seems like women often want to change a man. drinking can change a man..... what's the connecion? if I was smarter, or drunker I might get it. oh, well, it's too early (or is it too late?) for another beer. gotta get ready for work.

He wasn't referring to himself in the third person, that's what's wrong.

Marc is a good dude, brews some pretty damn good beer.  I don't know when all this business went down, but I obviously missed it.  Haven't seen Marc around here much lately or on the NB forum either.  Hope all is well in Marcland.  Look forward to chatting with you in the NB chatroom soon!  Cheers & beers, buddy!

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.

You know, guys and gals just learn from me an I hope with my heart you don't have to go through this. I have met many of the people from the forum face to face and how to meet these people face to face again is something that weighs upon me. I know I will be forgiven but even so. Let me be the poster boy for PUI and don't follow in my footsteps.

These are my last comments on my embarassing point of my life. I don't want to relive this again.


PEACE!

Alright. I think Boulder has said his piece/peace and wants this thread to die away. So, if ya'll don't mind, I'm gonna lock it now.
