Well of course you're more than entitled to change your stance on things we all do that
... but, my personal opinion, although I think it's really cool that you're trying to (my take on it anyways) rise above the petty stuff.. and that's good, that's really good
... I still think the "internet rage" posts, to quote you, and the whole "raising an army" thing. to quote you again.. they still raised some really good points!
You spoke out about women's issues in areas of interest to a lot of us .. "geek-dom" basically
, comics for one.. and I see nothing wrong about that! You're entitled to your opinion and.. look at it this way, yes there were a lot of people here on DA who attacked you in writing (typing?) ... and got WAY too personal about it I think ..... when you raised these points... but if there weren't a lot of people who didn't agree with you then they wouldn't have bothered to publicly post that they agreed with you on your threads
... And if you go back and look at your topics you'll see there was a LOT of support for various issues you took a stance on!
You made us aware of things we didn't know about before and, whether the persons who read your topic-threads agreed with you or not, you raised public consciousness... I don't see that as a bad thing!
... For what my humble opinion is worth give yourself at least a little bit of a break in that regard
And yes like the others say great to see you around again and hear from you
