For the last couple of days I have sat back and watched what I always thought was true in the back of my head, which is Analesa Presley was too good to be true. My jaw dropped when I saw everything but at the same time didn’t surprise me. At this point I feel that I need to speak my peace and move on with things. But first, what I say on here you will have to choose to believe it or not. That is up to you.
First and foremost, I want to public apologize to a few twitter handles (people if you will) for my actions over the past couple of years. BeastmanSteve, Dawgsmack, CopiahDawg, Flabloser, Steve Robertson, MSU2417, Coach 34 and especially Lumbararthritis. I am sure there are others I may have left off and I do apologize for that as well.
The reason I always took up for her was I thought it was who she said she was. As Acey has told in his write up, we all took it at face value from phone conversation with her. I, like Acey, was not going to spend time driving three hours to try and track her down. I took up for her because I don’t think people should be bullied. I am sure you’ll say I did some bullying as well (I’ll get to that in a second). I always believed in ribbing people and having fun with the rivals of MSU/UM but never liked bullying.
Now I as far as me bulling, let me set the record straight on that; particularly with Lumbararthritis. I NEVER sought out your information, called your work, and harassed your family. Yes I was shown your information by AP but I did not investigate whom you were/are/worked/etc. I may have made comments that were over the top a couple of years ago trying “protect”, what I thought, was a friend at the time. Again I do humbly apologize publicly for that. As far as Copiahdawg and the whole “followed you on twitter and unfollowed you to get your information” that was all a fallacy and something you can’t even do. As far as I know following anonymous people on twitter doesn’t give you personally information of someone you do not know.
Closing my account on Tuesday had nothing to do with the outing of AP at the end of the week. Mine was merely because I had done to me what AP did to Lumbararthritis by fauxwallace. I cannot understand for the life of me how making a wise crack about Dak Prescott potentially being drunk in PCB warranted putting my personal work information on there and going to my boss. But again, I get it, everyone though I tracked down information on Lumbar so they thought it was fair game. As far people saying I used my job and company software to seek out people is farther from the truth. You people do not matter to me that much to jeopardize my family’s livelihood just to find out some anonymous account.
What I know about AP, is nothing more than what y’all know. I did not in any way make up or run that account. I did talk with her on the phone and she would call me crying about being bullied but that was the extent of what I know about her. She always gave me the same stories as she did anyone else. She was from Fulton/Tremont area, lived in Ohio for a year, came back home and attended college. That is all I knew and cared to know, again I am not tracking down a person.
Some of you want to compare time frames of when RebelAP, RebelAGP or FinsupAP came into existence which was around the time MIRS was made, this is far from correct. The original handle was analesapresley, princess Presley or princessap happened to chime in on a conversation about Ole Miss in the fall of 2011 I believe. Acey, Jake and I didn’t come up with MIRS till a year later. Now the princes Presley or whatever handle disappeared for a while and came back as one of those RebelAp thereafter. MIRS was already formed by that time. Again, WE didn’t have anything to do with the creation or running of the AP account.
I, like everyone else, would like to know who she really is. Will we ever find out, who knows? Would it even help if you knew who it was? What would you do if that person did apologize? Would you continually bully her or let it go? All I can do at this point is apologize for my actions over the years for being duped/lied to/tricked and move on with life.
