Hello, many of you don't know me, and that's fine.
But I am a regular poster in the WWE section and have put up with a great deal of animosity because of my support for John Cena. Now, my support for him is not the issue here.
I know a lot of you don't enjoy his work, and that's fine. But I do. And perhaps, when people lambaste him on very spurious grounds, I feel the need to do a little bit of white-knighting on his behalf. Sue me.
But today, I was wrongly warned by a mod for my behaviour and I believe I am owed an apology and a retraction of that warning.
Just to clue you in, here is my post:

Because the concept of 'having' a wife, the concept of being with one person for the rest of your life, is antiquated, it's downright idiotic.
The idea of marriage is stupid, so I won't defend its hokey 'rules' when a truly mature human sees through them and makes a grab for more satisfying, instant pleasure rather than settling for the phony mirage of contentment that is supposed to come from allowing yourself to be tied to another human until you die.
And here is the response I received from Starbuck:

Now, having perused this forum, I can see a marked shift towards swearing at those you disagree with and general unpleasantness.
Well, if you all want to red-rep me and shout at me and scream at me, that's fine.
But I am here to demand an apology and in so doing, will not insult Starbuck or play the trite 'internet tough guy' role, as if I could somehow reach through the screen and hurt someone.
Let me go through this, point-by-point and plead my case:
1. Your behavior was threatening. Your threat to give me 'more than a warning' was completely uncalled for.
2. The opinions stated in that post were genuine. Funny story, growing up, I never knew my father, he ditched us when I was just a girl. But my Mom met a guy at her Church, started dating for a few years and yeah, they got married. Guess what? He cheated on her. Twice
Maybe that's why I'm bitter? Maybe that's why I'm against the idea of marriage?
Perhaps it has something to do with a personal philosophy based on my past experiences and goes beyond being a 'gimmick poster' on a wrestling forum.
3. If I am a troll, why have I put up with so much shit from people? And I'm serious here. Have you got any idea of the abuse I get in my rep section? Have you?
Here's a little taste for you:

Now, just look through the rants section. How many people have made boring tirades about 'red rep'? If you were to call these people trolls, I may understand your logic. They make a ridiculous statement, get insulted for it and then milk it for all it's worth.
But me? Despite this mistreatment, I have never retaliated, I have only responded with logical points - or, at least what seems like logic to myself personally - and perhaps reported their behaviour inside the thread to the mods and used this threat to steer the conversation away from boring little flame wars.
Does this sound like a troll? I don't think so. I think a quick look through my post history will confirm that I can discuss a great many subjects without causing undue alarm.
So why did you threaten me? Why did you insult me?
You are a mod. When everyone else threatens to beat me up, or swears at me or otherwise tries to silence my opinion, I turn to YOU
guys to help me out.
So, I would like an apology. And I would like you to remove that warning and allow me the dignity to continuing to discuss wrestling in the manner to which I have grown accustomed.
Controversial, perhaps, but not offensive to anyone who does not look
to be offended.
What do you say?
