NurseyIt used to be labeled as much worse. I want you to keep in mind, you want me to be labeled as actual sex offenders. People who are on registries. People who have physically raped and assaulted innocent people, including children. I will not lie and say I am an innocent person. I made terrible mistakes due to allowing myself to become an extreme degenerate online.
This is no excuse; but remember all of my actions were online. This is still terrible and I never use this as a point to defend myself, but I am saying this to help you realize how extremely you are being.
I'm a victim of both online grooming and real life sexual assault, go fuck yourself for acting like the two aren't comparable. The trauma and feeling of being violated in the end is the same, no matter if it's 'just online' or not. I know some of your victims personally, I know the shit you've said, what you've done. You are not just a 'shitty person who's made mistakes,' you are a threat. You did this repeatedly with multiple minors, and when you got called out you ran. Give up, you are not gaining any ground. You just look more and more pathetic every day you continue to try to return to this community. I will not be part of a community that harbours someone who has done as horrific of things as you have, go outside and be a functioning member of society. No amount of your self-deprecation will ever convince me that you have gotten better, like you continually claim.
You hurt a ton of people, and you trying to return constantly is just a terrible reminder of the shitty things you've done to them. You want to be better? Quit trying to return, quit trying to come back to the place you scarred so many people, quit trying to 'redeem' yourself. Just because you've manipulated people into believing you deserve to come back, that you deserve to be unbanned, that the hate isn't justified, it does not mean you are in the right in that regard. Is people harassing you and your friends shitty? Yes. Is it understandable considering the horrific shit you've done to people in this community? Also yes. It's actually just sad that you can't move on from this game, you have potentially the worst legacy of any prolific member of the TF2 community yet years later you still try to come back.
Get your sunlight-starved ass out of this community, and never come back. No rational person wants your nonce-minded brain to poison this community more than you already have.
