...I admitted to looking at and being sexually aroused by the celebrity nude photos that were stolen and posted on the internet a couple days ago. Although I tried to be clear I was not a good person for doing so, I didn't handle this admission with the seriousness it deserved. If I was going to cover this topic I should have done it with more care. There are members on ODeck and in the community at large here who have been affected by violations of the kind that happened to these celebrity women. I told people in the comments to the post that the moment any of what I was saying started to cause hurt feelings, I would take it down. It did and so I have. I should have been far more serious with this topic. I think I led myself to believe that being honest would forgive certain things but this was naive. It didn't help that I was trying to be funny at the same time in my responses. It was fire and gasoline and I managed it very poorly. To anyone I have offended, I sincerely apologize. I really do love and care for you guys and I think this could have gone a lot better had I approached it in a different way. I am not trying to obfuscate anything that happened here by removing the post. I could just see it was causing a problem, a problem with people I deeply respect, and I didn't want it to taint the ODeck any longer.
