And I just misread that as kpenguin being the guy who started the thread... I was like, 'Not kpenguin! Not the guy who did all the avb stuff! NOOOOEEEZZZZ!'
But yeah, don't worry about it. People do stupid things. Alot. Leave if you must, but don't worry about the embarrasment. I mean, seriously, have you ever been to the HoH, Belk's romantic interest, or the crack pairings thread? People embarrass themselves regularly on each one. (Or in Belkar's Romantic interest, people DID. I miss that thread so much...)
