I hate damage control.

This can be true, but don't be afraid to. If you have a different opinion about what I'm saying, point it out. Perhaps I missed something or didn't think about a thing in the context you thought of.

Its not uncalled for, but I believe you took what I said in the wrong light. Let me clarify.
Speculation can be fun, I have partaken in its joy on numerous occasions and I find them to be fun. Its part of the necessary components needed to make predictions. However, there is a danger with such speculation. It can cause twisting of facts to suit your ideas. Speculations are influenced by what we prefer to see what will happen. There is usually very little data to support speculations, and when there is data, it is usually ambiguous. They're a two edged sword, there is a harmful side, and a positive side.
Speculations can also be hard to discuss. They eventually lead into "wishful thinking" and hoping for a certain outcome. Such personal preferences can blind someone to what is really occurring. Such as GrimSenior44. He believes that due to PpGD being drawn in a anime style, that the comic would follow typical anime storyline. He concluded that Bell attacking Naga was part of some "Warrior Code", and its how he believes true warriors greet each other. That due to PpGD coloring, Bell is thus an honorable anime warrior, who greets people by hitting them first.
Now you didn't do anything on this scale. This was an example of flawed thinking due to personal preferences. He ignored data within the comic that pointed to Bell being very defensive of Gir. He twisted facts to suit theories. I don't like to deal with speculations very much. Basically for the reasons just explained, but you will find that I do take a guess at the possibility of the storyline. I prefer to explain events as they happened by using events from the comic, or where characters originate (the PpG cartoon for example). I also find them to be rather limiting in discussion unless there is data. For me (and I speak through history and by experience) I find such discussion to turn into "I believe this" and "You're wrong cus i'm leik totaly right. nuff said".
Speculation can lead to new ideas and opportunity that have been hidden before. Sometimes the future is needed before we can explain the past. Just be wary. Don't make a guess because you want it to happen, make a guess because from what you've seen, you think that may happen. Don't get personal in it. There is a danger of being blinded, both willingly and unwillingly when you allow personal preferences to seep into your analyzation of the comic.
You have not a damn thing to be worried about, or sorry about. Do not apologize when your ideas differ from someone else. Respectfully point out that while that idea could be right, could this idea be better.

I think he's got people banned with his reason.
I do not know all. Anyone who believes that he/she knows all is a fool... or a God.
I can not, nor will I ever attempt to purposely get someone banned for disagreeing with me. That is serious abuse of the report button, and moderator duties. I would be deeply ashamed if a moderator would do such a thing.
Please, do not talk about me like this again, Colonel. You've experienced this side of me because you were unfortunate enough to be a troll, and an idiot. This newbie is lucky enough to seem intelligent.

I am a man, and yes I'm pretty sure. I thought the term Lord in my name would have given it off.
However, a female version of Blood Lord?
Hmm... a Blood Queen. God that would be awesome...
I'm sorry, I'm fantasizing about having sex with a Blood Queen... what were we talking about again?

It takes a while to get use to. Well then, Welcome to Snafu, Dysdaimon. Enjoy your stay.
Any questions (from anyone)?
