Update: I went ahead and deleted the offending entry that caused headaches for another person. I should have stayed out of it in the first place. Oh well. I did make a huge error and for that, I am no longer posting submissions to LXer unless it is from another source until further notice. I took trust that I had and damaged it in a bad way. Instead of working on this blog and the magazine in addition to the online TV show and podcast like I was supposed to, I wound up trapped in self-promotion mode: A very poor decision on my part. I need to earn the privilege of being posted on LXer by somebody else. To Justin Breithaupt and anybody else who may become a future author of this blog: You are free to submit what you write to LXer. However, please refrain from submitting anything I have written. I need to take a step back and think about what I have done. I also need to let others know who are reading that the simple mistakes are obvious, and I beg for you to learn from what I did so you do not make the same errors in judgment.
1.) Do not assume you know what you need to know. If you are unsure about something, take 5 minutes and take a look at what you don’t understand.
2.) You have freedom of expression. However, that doesn’t mean turn off your brain. Turning off the brain is why the threat against the 1st Amendment in America and freedom of expression in various other countries is growing larger. I didn’t think.
Yes, I have a temper at times, and it does get the best of me. However, I myself have some clarifications.
1.) It was DTSC that was the problem concerning the recycling of computers in California. However, my statements concerning the EPA still stands. It has been muddled for quite some time with bureaucrats and ultimately caused a lot of people in NYC a lot of harm.
2.) The whole point of the last post was not to be creative, but to show how upset I was towards government-run environmental organizations. It does not matter to me if it is Federal or State. Due to useless rules and regulations, otherwise good causes are put in danger.
However, I did make a huge error in judgment and it’s time to admit that I was incorrect. I changed my mind, and have removed the post altogether. Thanks to azerthoth for yanking my head out of the clouds and back down to earth. So what’s going to happen from here? A couple of things.
- A plea to go over to this blog here and help the founder of ACCRC out financially. These wonderful people can definitely use the assistance. Just click the shiny PayPal button. 😉
- I need more authors for this blog and more people to point out when I am incorrect. Please, if I get something wrong, point it out to me. Slap me in the face if you must. I still have a lot of work to do when I do what I do. There’s always room for improvement, which needs constructive criticism. Also, if you are interested in writing for this blog, please let me know. I’ll be more than happy to make you an author. 😉
