LOL wargaming never led me into making bad moral choices. The people I have wargamed with, on the other hand....... you're all terrible people.

Some of you are literally Hitler.

Yes, I reply to a lot of threads with images. That's because your posts are crap, and don't deserve anything more than a cursory Google image search.

fofjunior,

I'm wondering why you are still online and posting. Are you asking for support and feeling the need to justify yourself to the very people who forced you to see bewbs ?

put the keyboard to one side and go and talk to your wife.

I suspect I'm giving you the best advice you'll get.

I don't expect a reply. If I get one, I'll know wau has failed you.

Is your wife happy with your open letter?

Yes, she is happy with the open appology on-line.

I think it's easy to call troll on this. It saves face and makes people feel a little better if they feel uncomfortable. I think exploring the issue of having to write an open letter is warranted.

The poster has written it with the intent of communicating his distress of what he's perceived to have done to his loved ones. Fair enough I say. I just caution the scatter gun approach and if a more apporpate line of communication should have been explored.

I believe honesty like this instead of hiding behind a screen name is seething I would be happier to see more of on here

Hi, Karen, Gary ' s wife.

Please refrain from being negative. Remember, memento mori (thou art only mortal).

My husband loves me and has shown a lot of backbone in exposing himself emotionally. I did not demand it but asked if he would consider doing it as part of repairing our relationship. Obviously he did, placing my feelings above his own embarrassment. He did this because my feelings, opinion of him and his actions are what matters at this stage.

Thanks to those for the kind words offering lovely support.

I have not demanded anything from him and he will continue to play as he has stated but it will not come before myself or our children. Gary has learned that he has to fill up the emotional bank account of his wife and children as well before filling his own in a hobby. A good lesson for all and I don't see why people would want to bring him down for that.

To those being negative, go waste your time elsewhere. My husband is aware of his shortcomings and does not blame the hobby or the venues or other people - he is holding himself responsible for his actions.

Straylight, it was actually my phone that was left logged in on the forum as I have just been on there myself and thanks for the "advice" but it's not required, my husband and I are quite capable of talking and repairing our relationship. Time to put it to bed.Goodnight all

I am interested in the quantity of hugs required for a two day tournament.

Can I earn interest if I don't empty my account straight away?

I was wondering what it would take to get me back into the 40k threads.

Why?
How does posting this on a forum do that exactly?

Not being negative, genuinely interested.

To be fair we were here first. Talking about wargames and stuff. Because wargames forum, not display love by public shaming forum.

Though if that has changed let me know, my wife loves a good shaming

Not any that have wife approval obviously. That's a heads up btw, you might have to make a forum post.

FWIW most of those 'being negative' actually support your stance.

To see if he was man enough,cared enough to move forward. By subjecting himself to public scrutiny over his actions. It is easy to say "yes honey, I will try and do better etc" but letting other people know or whatever he is somewhat more accountable for his actions. You don't need to understand obviously it has helped for them to do it this way, so good on them.

It is odd to do it this way by this form of media but hey like he said, he was a regular in the scene and wanted to make amends for any negativity that he may have portrayed his wife in to people of the same scene.

I've got a feeling the hobby is just that. It's more about your husbands feelings rather than his escapism with playing the mans.

Titty bars? He ended up there and was uncomfortable. Why make him post it online to rehash it all?
