Joe,

Hey I'm having trouble signing on as Gatorman and Gatorman2. How can I post my apology? I'm really sorry for the way things went. Last friday when you left the Chat room, I missed your email.

Joe, I realize the error in my ways. I caused alot of trouble and realize my place in the forum is not to regulate BillyC but to contribute to the overall enjoyability of the site. After taking a break, I want to come back show you and everyone else you guys were right to ban me for the way I acted and also right to bring me back because I'm better than the way I've been acting.

I was wrong in many ways. No person is bigger and better than the site. I need to control my anger, and I need friends like you to help me understand things like this. You've really been there for me in these past 15 months. Its time to return the favor. If you guys bring me back I want to assume more of a moderate role on the board by posting well thought out post that spark interest in the board and increase activity in a positive way.

No more attacks! Only criticism of legit subjects that all may discuss in an intelligent manner. I'm better than the way I acted. Your support of me in this time away means alot. I want to show you I learned my lesson and you helped me learn it.

Really, what I've been doing has been a total waste of our time. Its time to support our boys and support the best Saints site on the net.

Respectfully,

Steve (Gatorman)
Halo, I vote to reinstate him. Thank you Gator.

Remember Blazing Saddles, when the town needed help and the town spokesman said they\'d take everybody except the Irish? LOL Well, eventually all were accepted and there was a happy ending. I vote FOR Gator\'s return. I myself took a several day hiatus to cool off a bit. That break kept me from posting a bunch of stuff I\'m sure I would regret. Gator has posted some good stuff and I\'m sure that would continue if he were allowed back in. Billy is back...ummm, or is he...so I say let all be forgiven and lets get back to disagreeing in a civilized manner! We\'ve all posted things I\'m sure we wish we could take back...well, all of us except Saintz08, but then he\'s always wrong anyway!

LOL

:P

I am the Genie of Sound. Everybody get down!

For what it is worth, I would vote in favor of Gatorman coming back. In my opinion he has expressed adequate contrition. This board is always in need of people who want to post on interesting subjects AND argue their positions on subjects. Obviously, things got out of hand.

Ultimately, the decision lies with the owners/managers of this board, but I wanted to voice my approval for reinstatement.

I say let\'s bring Gator back also. I like Gator. I like this Billy guy too. I talked to Billy and he say\'s he promises to be an upstanding member of this forum.

Just gotta say this for Gator. It takes much of a man to do what he\'s done for the members and me. It\'s not easy to admit that we all have been wrong in the past. Anybody that\'s man enough to do that I will vote for. The way it\'s worded tells me that he means it. Bring him back.

Please, please, please.... <imagine my best James Brown impersonation>

This site is the best Saints forum on the net, and each and every member is important (except SwampDog). :P

What\'s a fan site without a surly reptile, anyways??

I have nothing against Billy but he has yet to do what Gator has done for the members and admit he was wrong. I know there was a buried post somewhere on here but I think it needs to be out in the open so all can see it. Then I might vote to bring him back too. Something about sneaking back just doesn\'t sit well with me. Tells me that a person thinks he can do no wrong and doesn\'t care about anyone other than himself. We\'ll see what happens next.

Thats a genuine apology, it\'s merits speak for itself. This board is a lot better with Gator on it. He has been a mainstay here a lot longer than most, certainly I. He understands how he impared the free flow of ideas in this fourm and deserves another chance because of what he adds to it and helped postively make it.His insight, humor and dedication to this board should not be lost.

Joe,

Let me just say this. There is no doubt that I have done things that have broken the rules. It\'s not my forum and I should do what I am asked to do, whether I agree or not. From now on I will follow every rule. No more problems outta me. If I have offened anyone I apolojize. It will not happen again.

Joe, if allowed to come back I will not cause you anymore heartache. NONE!! I was trying to prove a point and it was silly. No more. I was WRONG WRONG WRONG.
