I think by not making myself more clear or more specific I might have accidentally said something that could be interpreted as hating Americans and therefore probably against the rules... Is it possible to receive forgiveness from the sites moderators?

EDIT: wait should this have gone into "Advice, Info, Recommendations"?

A great rule to live by is, "If you cannot say what you mean, say nothing."

my post was directed at the history of the U.S. government and manifest destiny, but I accidently worded it in a way that sounds like I hate Americans

(It's fine where it is, I think, though each mod does have their own opinions.. I could see it going either way)

Also, have you tried offering a Klondike Bar? You'd be amazed what people would do for one of those.

But, quite honestly, I've got no idea what post you're worried about is. If you're worried, you could report your post to have it edited or removed. A few folks have reported their own posts over the years, sometimes because they posted while drunk, angry, whatever, and that's fine, we do try to work with stuff like that. Or they later look back and think "ehhh, maybe I revealed too much about myself, that might track back to me or allow doxxing, so.. yeah, bad". Or just "this could be wildly misinterpreted". Anyway, just saying it's fine to report your own post or thread if you need.

We do try to take context and other posts into account when determining what is going on, though. If you didn't mean to say that you hated Americans, likely that came across, so don't worry. On the flip side, if you're constantly antagonizing others, or have built up a history of bans (didn't see one with you, just mentioning as a general thing, since I recently banned a guy for a month after months of antagonistic behavior), then that also impacts how a mod reaction might go.

Its a reference to hateful bigotry known to civilized people as Hate-speech that the alt-right/neonazis call "Free-speech"
