Regarding the "reddit" controversy

For those who don't know, 5 years ago I made a really stupid mistake that I regret every day. Of course every day I am constantly reminded of this mistake, by those who wish to rub it in my face, and by others who don't know much about me and think I am still the same person. I made this thread to address all of this once and for all. Will it stop users from shoving it in my face over and over again? No. But it will bring me peace of mind.
1The Beatles
Please Please Me

This was what I did.
2The Beatles
With the Beatles

The controversy was around accusations labelled against Swans frontman Michael Gira, and around the discussion in a sputnik thread about the issue.
3The Beatles
A Hard Day's Night

At the time, I had become embroiled in the culture war controversy that had swept the internet. I watched many anti-feminist stalwarts like Sargon, Milo, and Dave Rubin. I firmly believed in all that nonsense about "cultural marxism" and believed feminists were out to get all of my favorite video games and movies banned. That they were trying to take over the world and create a new totalitarian superstate where freedom was crushed.
4The Beatles
Beatles for Sale

My views were simple at the time, but as I became even more engrossed in this rabbit hole, my views got more and more radical. Hence, when certain users of sputnik gave an opinion that I felt was "SJW" in nature I went to that accursed website thinking that sputnik had been infested by "SJWs" and that it needed to be fixed or something or other.
5The Beatles

I was high on the movement, high on this "culture war" that was happening and inflaming people on both sides. I was lucky though, as certain events happened that allowed me to deradicalize and leave that stuff for good.
6The Beatles
Rubber Soul

I got banned on Twitter, something that prevented me from being inundated with the flurry of outrage porn flooding the site at the time. Once I started to distance from all that garbage, I then saw how truly garbage KiA was, and promptly left the sub. This was in early 2018 and immediately the tons of stupid shit I said and posted hit me straight in the head like a brick. Now I had to stew in all of the filth I had made, things that nowadays make me cringe.
7The Beatles

Let me make this clear for the final time.
8The Beatles
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

I denounce everything said in the reddit thread linked above.
9The Beatles
Magical Mystery Tour

I denounce the subreddit itself and have no more association with the sub anymore.
10The Beatles
The Beatles

I denounce everything I said in the reddit thread and denounce everything I said in the threads defense here on sputnik. I denounce all of it. They were a horrible mistake from a young kid who got radicalized and didn't realized what he had become until it was too late.
11The Beatles
Yellow Submarine

Nonetheless, I do hope to accomplish something else with this. People make mistakes, people can get influenced by the wrong crowd as long as their propaganda network is good enough. The users on this site have a tendency to latch onto others mistakes and hold them over us as a way of endlessly punishing us, even after we have changed. I encourage users to not jump the gun when a user does something along the lines of what I did, sometimes, we may not yet realize what we have said or done.
12The Beatles
Abbey Road

Try to find it in your heart to be patient with others like me. If I am anything to go by, we honestly do not mean to harm anyone, we are just tricked into believing that we are helping cure a problem that doesn't exist. You never know what a kind but stern hand can do for someone in that position.
13The Beatles
Let It Be

I know this might fall on deaf ears, but it needed to be done.
