This is exactly what skirting the edges is. You were riding on the thin line of "darn I might have to curb my racist inclinations if they start doing something."
We did something, and now you're trying to sell us on the fact that you're going to be this perfect, reformed person when there's a very large mountain of evidence that points to the conclusion that there is zero chance you have changed. If there really were no rules, wouldn't you say that you had the freedom of choice to at least put on the facade of a decent human being, but willingly chose to be a racist, anti-Semite, and a homophobe because you couldn't be bothered and/or you were literally incapable of doing so because of who you are as a person?
I don't believe a thing you've said in this thread about being changed.
