Are we seeing the start of some sort of black-hat conspiracy? (Avatar-wise, that is)

I believe in realizing the ramifications of what one is saying prior to hitting "Post" and being prepared to stand behind what has been said, or in having the intelligence and self-restraint to merely think it without posting it. In either case, apologies are neither necessary nor appropriate.

In real life, 100% of my non-family interactions are in Japanese, so like everybody else I go through the pseudo-apologies that grease the skids of Japanese interaction. In real life back in the US, I took pretty much the same policy as I do for online now. Either bite my tongue or speak out and stand behind it. It sort of goes along with my policy of putting my name on my posts.

I'm not idiot enough to think that I'm converting anyone to my way of thinking on this. And I don't expect people to quit apologizing left and right. I've merely tried to explain my thinking on the matter and to let people know that should they ever feel the need to apologize for some remark they made to me online, they may suppress the urge and I won't think any less of them for having done so. To the contrary, I'll think more highly of them for having said what they thought and having stuck with it.



does it ever end?


Only if an admin determines that this thread is worthy of a lock. But that only happens once in a great while, and only stops it for that thread.

I agree there are too many black hats around here. We need to start a white hat group too ;)

I meant whats the conclusion? I assume mike meant that instead of an online apology he just wants nothing said.

Wow, this thread should get an award for being the most hijacked thread on the site. Here's an imaginary medal, enjoy it.

Two muffins were baking in an oven. One turns to the other and says "sure is hot in here." The other replies "AH TALKING MUFFIN!"

二つのマフィンがオーブンで焼かれていた。片方のマフィンがもう一方のマフィンに向かって、"暑いね”と言った。すると、話しかけられたほうのマフィンは"アッ!喋るマフィンだ!”と驚いた。 :)

Dehitay I've got to say man you look so much like a gothic witch hunter in those clothes - get two flintlocks and you're the part :)

What's wrong with black hats? I'm going to wear a black fedora when I go to work in a few minutes.

I'm starting to feel like I'm in a black and white movie where everyone wears them. And it's weird.

Other than that, I like black hats just fine.

whenever it doesn't prove inconvenient (which is rare). I have no where to put it in class or at work, so it's more recreational. I have a much smaller hat for when I don't feel like combing my hair

Sometimes I wonder why people can't get away with dressing like that on a daily basis anymore. Especially given what does pass for style.

Fashion is fleeting; style is eternal.

I finally figured out that if I'm old enough to pull off enjoying a cigar without looking like a total ass, then I'm old enough to wear a proper hat instead of a baseball cap. Been wearing them daily since last summer.

I have a nice wide-brimmed (4") western-style hat made of Guatemalan palm leaves for summer wear, as well as a suede-finish leather Australian job from BC Hats. I purchased it for winter wear, but it's not suited for it. For winter wear I have a black fedora and a tan Aussie outback model which routinely gets mistaken for a cowboy hat in Japan.

No direct image for the last one. Link goes to it.

And I'm looking forward to adding a nice Panama fedora for this coming summer.

Gentlemen wears hats. Coincidentally, so do I.
