What The Heck I Meant: An Apology And Clarification Letter To All Who Jumped To Stereotypical Wild Conclusions And Completely Missed The Fact That The Blog Was A Satirical Rant About An April Fools' Day Joke That Never Actually Came To Fruition
For those of you that read my blog I posted on April 1st, 2012 and replied either on the forum boards or to my personal message box all I have to say is...
Not Amused At All
Firstly, let me apologizes to those of you out there that did not find this joke funny at all. The first of April is traditionally a time of lighthearted hoaxes and jokes and as such, Metal Storm tries very hard to provide this to you each year. The joke this year was that Metal Storm became a porn site but you all missed it. My ranting blog was aimed at furthering that notion that it had actually happened. My only intention was to get people laughing.
I guess somewhere along the road the concept that this was all a huge gag was lost.
I would also truly and deeply like to apologize to anyone who thought that the mentality and reactions in the blog were how I really felt. I want to make it public record that the majority of that does not reflect my view.
Still part of me is rather baffled at the notion that many of you did not even get the fact that is was a joke and I am rather shocked at how quickly many of you were began to hurl insults and SPAM my in-box with hate-mail. Please correct me if I am wrong, but for those who attacked me for that blog miss the entire notion of the Metal Storm April Fools' Day joke? Did you actually read my blog closely? There were numerous mentions and references to the Metal Storm pornography, did any of you actually get to see any of this pornography that supposedly upset me?
Plus there was the whole line about the Dora The Explorer Pool...
...add midgets and peanut butter for good times
Come on guys, you had no inkling that this was all a ruse?
But before I actually start ranting, I also need to take a step back, humble myself, and do some re-assessment.
Maybe part of the reason the joke failed is because those who didn't know anything about me just assume that because I am a Christian, I would over react like that. It seems logical to me. Those who do know me seemed to really enjoy it. Not every PM I got was negative, some people thought it was hysterical. Then again, most of them all know me.
The big question is where do we go from here? I am not sure. It is something I have to think and pray about.
And by the way, I think Marcel is a really great man.
