You people are idiots. I have done NOTHING wrong. All you've done is put me down and criticize me. According to you people even though I'm 22 I don't know what I want in life.

Banned.

The way you present yourself tells us all we know about you - and it hasn't been a pretty picture.

There is a lesson here especially for the young TJPers. Learn to accept constructive criticism even when it hurts - that's usually when you find yourself growing and becoming a better person.

But pride and the "I'm right and everyone else be damned" mentality will only hurt you and those around you.

I'm actually kind of sad about him being banned.
Reading his insane rantings was the highlight of my day. :D
I think this says more about the quality of my days than the quality of his rantings, however. *laugh*

I am surprised it took as long as it did to get him banned though.

For the record people -- my deep dark secret.

I also am prone to incredible mood swings. I don't like to talk about it, but there are times... well, it's not happy. Right now, in fact, I'm in a deep -- REALLY deep -- trough.

Other than occasional curmudgeonly moments here, I like to hope I generally don't inflict my downswings on people. It's all in knowing your limitations.

And here I was wondering how long until the doofus "banned" himself... from life.

And I've got to ask, why the hell were you all encouraging him?

My mood tends to take wild swings from "bad" to "bad". Usually I try to be outwardly friendly though and not get anybody else down. You don't seem mean or rude either, AJ. Whereas the original poster, in my opinion, is someone who uses their own problems as an excuse for their bad attitude towards others.

For me, two reasons.

1) Everyone deserves two things: benefit of the doubt, and enough rope to hang themselves with.

2) Maybe (probably) this guy is just a ridiculous troll. His initial posts seemed on the level, for someone who has bipolar disorder. Later it was all just bad. But you know, this forum gets a lot of young people, a lot of adolescents prone to mood swings and rosy images of happiness in Japan. So regardless of the original poster, who he was, and what he wanted, I imagine that somewhere someone will honestly be in the same kind of situation he was presenting, and hopefully will benefit from my post.
