I Rob am truly sorry. I shall not belittle no one no more! I shall not make any car threads. I will not derail threads with my hyperbole. I am a changed person, and it is all because of God. God is great, she is awesome, she is the one true being. God is my friend, she must be yours as well.

I am sorry to those that I have offended.


sincerely,
Rob

It's the thin-skinned "report abuse" abusers around here who annoy me.

Jesus has obviously shown you the error of your ways.

Amen.

What happened now? Somebody reduced your post count?

Oh, and she'll be happy to be hearing that, I am sure.

The most obvious solution took a while to leap to at least my brain: the fake Rob spells ‘channel’ with a capital i, rather than a minuscule l (‘channeI’ vs. ‘channel’), making them look the same. Copy-pasting the names into a document with a different font reveals all.

LOL...I thought Rob found Jesus when he was almost hit by the SUV driven by Satan!

Then I noticed that god is a she and now I'm just confused...

I think most people knew it wasn't you mostly because the imposter was nice and apologetic

edit: you got to give props to the imposter, the name was virtually identical and almost no way to visually distinguish it between yours.

At least the OP just did one thread, more headaches could have resulted if he used the fake id sparingly.

Did you have a profound spiritual experience or an intervention Rob?

Anyways you never bothered me but others seemed to bait you a lot and you went for it.

I'm amazed anybody bought this. The delivery was so obviously silly that I thought it was Rob making a joke. Then I noticed the 1 post count and I was like, "Oh."

Don't worry Rob people don't believe your some sort of religious wacko - they think you're just a run of the mill intolerent wacko who hates SUVs.

Rob is incredibly transparent with his attempts to get under people's skin, and at times begins to feel like a living, typing parody. I used to let him bother me during his banned daily phase, but now he's kind of like the retarded uncle that you gives the family a little comic relief.

Side note: my "retarded uncle" is actually paranoid schizophrenic, and burned down my grandpa's church about 15 years ago.

Dude. Sorry to hear about the retarded uncle...and burning down churches is never good.

I almost spit up my beer laughing though...this has been the best thread here in a while. I chaulk up a lot of Rob's comments due to being young..

My uncle finally talked a few months ago about the "incident." He said he spent 20 minutes dumping gasoline down this pit that was in the church. He said he threw a match down, and took off running. He felt like "Bruce WIllis in Die Hard" as the flames flew up behind him and knocked him forward on his face. He was high most of the time during those days, so I'm not sure how much of his story is true, but it's entertaining nonetheless. The new church is beautiful, so it turned out okay in the end.

Back to topic (sort of): I like having Rob around the lounge, even if he does apparently have a thing against people like myself.

Apparently it's now legal to impersonate other members around here. This topic isn't locked, nor has it been made clear that is NOT me.
