Steve says Hello Everybody!
I awoke this morning and much to my surprise found negativity directed at me. A most unfortunate thing. I've been here only for a couple days and have tried to spread positivity! not negativity. For that I do apologize. For being Steve, I do not and never will apologize.
1. I am not impersonating Ricky Henderson. Speaking in the third-person is not derivative. I am familiar with the David Cross bit, but I have not attempted to replicate it in any way. My comments are all my own. Sometimes they are jokes, but even then, they are sincere. I have attempted commenting on various Gawker sites before but found that I was insecure in doing so. I had to look within and confront my own insecurities to find a voice I felt comfortable with. It so happened that it was in the third-person, but unlike David Cross/Ricky Henderson I am not replicating a fake interview to garner a few laughs, I am merely, and truly speaking my mind. While I do make jokes from time to time, my main focus is making people smile or offering some advice when I think people might need it. I have no intention on making enemies, only friends, albeit of the internet variety. If I seem like a tired account after two-days, I apologize and hope that you give me the benefit of the doubt as well as a chance that I can become a valued member of the Gawker Media community.
