This is very painful, but as of recent I have discovered there is no way to post anywhere on these forums with out being persecuted. I'm a very outspoken person who tries very hard to make people understand where I'm coming from… and people here just don't like that.
I did a search on my name earlier and found someone I didn't even know insulting me in threads I would never visit. I PMed them and asked them why and the only reason I got was because I was out spoken.
I'm going to post what I told him:
I really really really really wish people would just learn to respect my opinion and at least try to understand why I do what I do. I never meant to harm anyone, I Just wanted to help One Piece. I wanted people to get the same enjoyment out of it that I got…. That has always been my goal. that's all I wanted... and I'm just.. frustrated that people just cannot accept that. Honestly, it just makes me very sad.
Certain people are passionate about certain things, and yeah out spoken. A lot of people complained about the dub, a lot of people complained when OP didn't air that week. I was targeted simply because I was optimistic and actually TRIED to get off my ass to do something.
I've been ridiculed, mocked, my reputation has been tarnished... all because I had a fucking dream and acted on it. And the funny thing is, after all that happened, my dream came true...
not one person on this forum will even acknowledge that
it's just not possible in a community like this.
thank you for your time and honesty.
That's how I feel inside and how I've been feeling these past weeks. I know certain members will always be jerks no matter what I do. I can accept that perfectly. There's nothing I can do about that, but lately I cannot post anything anywhere without this problem. I've made perfectly harmless posts that were not meant to cause any trouble by any size shape or form, and received the rudest of responses. Nobody even tries to see where someone else is coming from. It's "My way is right, you are wrong!"
That's why I was asking permission to make topics. It seemed no matter what I did, I would piss people off and this was never my intention. It's time to move on. I do not belong here.
Now, I want to make it clear that I do not hold grudges, and I've only done so once on the internet (which I won't mention here). Even when I was banned from a message board for apologizing to the people there (true story) I didn't hold it against them. It was more of a banning me to keep the peace.
There were several members that I feel really helped me out and I'm glad to have known them. Several of them I got off on the wrong foot with but it smoothed out over time. It's amazing what communication can do. I'll give a shout out to some of them:
Seal of Legends
I know we didn't always agree, but these people stand out more than others as outstanding members to me.
I'm still going to send out the Thank Funimation project, but I'm going to ask that the topic be closed. I'm also going to ask that the Constructive Criticism thread be closed as I will no longer be relaying info to anyone. One last thing I'd like to ask everyone on this forum: If you are currently talking about me behind my back, please stop, and do not reply to this with, "YAY Quexinos is gone!" or arguing with me like, "The problem is, this is a forum and you shouldn't take it personally and blah blah…" or anything like that. I'd rather you just forgot I existed than tarnishing my name constantly.
One last thing I want to make clear:
I AM NOT TURNING MY BACK ON FUNIMATION OR ONE PIECE! I'm still going to watch the dub! I'm still going to support Funimation anywhere I can. Yes, saveonepiece.com is no longer up. That does not mean I hate One Piece. You might see my name viewing a spoiler thread or something like that, but I will not participate or pay attention to any conversation. I still love One Piece and want to enjoy it. If anyone wants to read a more detailed goodbye, I have replaced the saveonepiece.com homepage with one.
I'm off now to make a dream come true. A dream I've had ever since I was a young child. I'm going to do it and no one is going to tell me otherwise.
Thanks for the fun time we had, and don't forget to believe in wonderland.
