An expansion on my apology about Nathan/Dekadurr/NintendoDecoder

So here is the apology I'm talking about for reference

Before I begin, this is just me expanding on what I have already said and what other people have said regarding the situation with Nathan. This is in NO WAY SHAPE OR FORM me trying to backpedal on what I said. I still 100% take FULL responsibility for not handling the situation properly and for being naive in thinking he changed his ways

So first, my initial apology tweet is being used to discredit what others are saying because of my phrasing of "I will admit that in the past when this happened, a few of us would pull him aside and try to speak to him and tell him to fucking stop that pedo shit". What I meant was that whenever Nathan was outed publicly on Twitter about the nubile thing, we collectively drug him into a call and proceeded to destroy him for it. We DO NOT condone that shit at all. But our mistake was giving him a chance to change instead of cutting ties right then and there.

There was a 2nd time where there was information about Nathan being spread around and we drug him into call again. THIS time however, he had pulled up a screenshare and showed us his Twitter DMs and showed that it looked like he was framed. We saw the messages and it looked like a girl was asking for graphics and offering nudes and Nathan wasn't about it but was pressured and they ended up trading pictures. That's what I personally remember from that but we told him then and there that if stuff happened again, we were cutting him off regardless of if it's a rumor or not.

As far as all the information about Nathan that has come out over the course of a few days, NO, we had NO clue Nathan was still going around harassing women in the community. We had no idea that he was sending unsolicited pictures and being incredibly aggressive towards them whenever they would deny his advances to the point of threatening them and their families. We truly truly had no idea and I'm very sorry to those he's affected

My approach on the situation years ago was awful and I truly apologize for not handling it properly. I wanted to expand on my original apology because I left out information, but I didn't want people to think I was making excuses or backpedaling because I'm not. I'm still owning up to my own mistake in handling the situation. Again, if you want to stop associating with me or block me, please go ahead. I understand and I wish you nothing but the best and I'm sorry to have disappointed you.

Also to everyone that has responded to me and sent me messages regarding the situation, I truly thank you from the bottom of my heart and I'm also very sorry. I'm going to be better and do better and not fail you all again. And to the victims, I'm SO sorry that you had to go through that. What I'm feeling right now is only a fraction of what y'all must have went through with Nathan. I'm sorry I didn't do better.
