  Really?  So start.  Apologize for your behavior.  Promise never to repeat
  what you have done.  This should not be hard for you at all, if anything
  other than your threats to continue forever is actually _true_.  Show us
  all that you can respect me and my opinions.  It starts with you, because
  you want the change.  Remember, now, even in the face of abuse, you must
  maintain your cool and continue to respect people and their opinions and
  be polite and courteous.  If you find that others do not do what you
  think they should in order to make the forum useful for all, politely and
  courteously suggest ways to improve and always ignore any hostility you
  meet as a result.  See through those who ridicule you to learn what they
  would see changed in your behavior or personality, and adapt accordingly.
  Do this for 15 years, while contributing daily to the furherance of the
  languages and communities you want to grow and prosper, suggesting new
  ideas to and trying to teach people who only want you to do their job or
  their homework for them.  Then let me know how you feel about politeness
  and courtesy and options.  Also, after you have actually been there, let
  me know how I should have dealt with you.  Start today.  Report in 2017.
