Yeah, yeah. I know a few of you reading this know what this is about. For those who do not, here's some background information.
On 28 October 2014, I came across this story called "At Tarantula Lil's" by Richard Logsdon on a random website. Thinking it was a good story, I posted it on this Wiki. You can still find the story on here today if one of the admins hasn't deleted it by now (Be warned, it is NSFW). Nothing too suspicious happened for the next 2 weeks, so everything was fine. On 11 November 2014, however, I made the fatal mistake in tagging my name onto the story itself (And again on 15 December).
During this entire stint, I felt like I was on top of the world and riding high on success, not knowing of the potential consequences that would come as a result of this. The new year came along and not even a full 24 hours into the new year, I was given my punishment in the form of a 6 month block along with story deletions, revoking of rights, and the like.
I didn't complain about my punishment. I still believe that it was a fair punishment and Skelly did the right thing in helping me learn my lesson about plagiarism. After the initial incident, however, I caught wind of a lot of people shittalking me across the entire network. It got so relentless that I was considering quitting, although I will admit that one of the responses to the incident made me laugh. To me, that message was idiotic and the person that wrote it should not have wasted their breath and wrote that. It's like, "Why would you want me unblocked after I just committed a serious offense? It's uncalled for and I got what I deserved."
I say all of that to get to this: I sincerely regret my behaviour and I take full responsibility for my actions. I know I may have lost a few familiar faces as a result, but all I have to do is look forward to the future and hope not to repeat the same mistakes that I did in the past.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I'm sorry.
