First of all, it should be obvious so I don’t know why I even have to say this, but I am not even asking for forgiveness. If you offer it, awesome, if not, it doesn’t bother me.
Second, I am aware that @m0nique14 was not happy with my actions by the end of it all. I have expressed my apologies and informed her that she made the experience more meaningful than perhaps anyone else did. She said that my creativity was based on fraud and deception, but it wasn’t. I used it to deceive in terms of being a time traveler, but saying that the creativity was based on deception is simply not true.
Your creativity might be genuine but our answers were based on your deception. Generally people such as @m0nique14 does not like falling victim to hoaxes. Based on your opinion on meaningful experience there is still the part that you derived enjoyment from your deception.
Basing it on deception would be something like what @Tron1 and others do. Baseless lies about traveling through time where they are not even trying to help or teach, simply going on a nonexistent adventure where nothing is gained by doing so, that is creativity based on deception. To some people that may just be semantics, but the difference is much more important than you believe.
This really sounds like "if he can do a bad thing it why not do a similar bad thing myself for a good reason". Baseless lies about traveling through time that with self perceived effect of trying to help or teach are still baseless lies.
Also unlike you Tron1 isn't trying to use it as a vehicle to push an agenda which shouldn't be relevant to this discussion.
This was the part where you do not take responsibility for your own actions by using other people's example. Stop trying to change the focus of the discussion.
And finally, to address this again since you, specifically @Blix1ms0ns have been under the impression I intend to plagiarize, I have stated multiple times that payment will be offered and discussed with anyone whose posts will be used in or influence my book.
You think I’m some terrible person, but that is your opinion, not a fact. You dont have to forgive me, but who are you to say other people should not? You all have the right to your opinions.
For the same reason we all have the right to our opinions, who are you to say why other people should offer forgiveness in this case. Like making choices, an informed opinion is necessary to make informed choices. If you are not asking for forgiveness why inquire about the decision to forgive.
