You're absolutely right, being how most of us has a "geek culture background" I was leading up to the context. I was hoping to get the response, "Lol, cooking mama" or "what is that from" so that say, you should check out cooking mama for the nintendo ds or wii, and you would have seen how funny the main character's broken English was... but instead the server went poof, and the comment just seemed mean or ignorant.
Ah... Seeing as my last console was a NES, yeah, I had no reference for that, and didn't even get that it was

Again, context was key, just like you said. I know you're aware I'm the dad of Dark_lust, CaraemelDansen10, and Little_Cazy. When you said "I can't deal with stupid parents" right after the cooking mama comment, combined with the server shutdown, I forgot about the issues you had about your dad and selfishly thought you were talking about me. I get it now tho. I hope you can patch things up with your parents because you only get one!
Oh, I get it now. No, that was totally not aimed at you. Even in my upset state, I probably thought it a given that "parents" and "players" were two separate groups.

Getting disbanded twice with no reason was why my usual thick skin was penetrated. See next quote for more clarification.

I got banned for asking you to come here when you were like 20 meters away. figured you were just crabby and brushed it off.
Oh... I kind of remember that now. I was trying to think and analyze a situation. You kept yammering inanely in my ear even after I asked you to be quiet. I also had no idea where you were, so I didn't know that you were "20 meters away." I just shut you out so I could think and not have to start over from the beginning of my evaluation for the tenth time, since I was being continuously interrupted
by various people. (It is VERY
annoying and frustrating to have to do the same thing over and over again from the start
and not get finished.) Once I was done thinking, I unbanned you. Simple, effective, not personal. I did the same with Osprey when I was trying to evaluate a train station issue.
The same goes for tonight, and pretty much every issue you all have had with me in 2014: None of this was personally directed at any one of you. The last person I was truly upset with personally regarding this server was Jostain, but hind-sight has made those feelings all go away long ago. That situation was all just a big break-down in communication, since he was using terms that he thought I understood. I didn't, but I thought I did, while having a wrong understanding of them, leading us to talk past each other. If Jostain ever decides to come back, I will have no animosity towards him.Edit
: I take that back. Jostain's not the last one I was upset with. I have a grudge against that "vinny" guy, and I think half the server does, too, with good reason. (I didn't think of him at first because I was thinking of regular players.)
