Moderator: Mod Squad
i didn't respond to this even though i wanted to because anything said on this thread that remotely resembles criticism is going to be vilified. Look, you were even unjustly called an idiot already and even called out on your moderator status because your opinion differs or points banality or blatant whor in-(whoops bad word bad word people could get angry and in their anger read messages withing posts that don't exists like just happened above . I just didn't think this was some kind of clusterfuck of different kinds of therapies, even those that are made up. :P Like,Q.U. wrote:Mir@k wrote:Anyone else wants to go "me too me too"? Not meaning to offend anybody, i just wonder what the point of that is.
Or i'm high. Whatever.
Let's start our own thread for "people who have to dig through the same shit as everyone else but have never been depressed or suicidal because of it". We could invite BR and a bunch of other cool people and hang out in there.
alright so hit me with a rolled newspaper if you want but this is the ad for a suicide hotline, and i personally think that is kinda screwed up that we are now using this thread for something like that because, even assuming that everyone posting after stuff weren't just bandwagoning for attention and were actually seeking advice, or actual well, theraphy, i don't see how condoning a feeling of relation or identification out of suicidal feelings is therapeutic at all. I think most of us know how, why and when this trend started on this forum and i think it's pretty unhealthy and kinda disrespectful that people are still doing that kind of stuff.EagleMan wrote:specifically designed for people to talk about those feelings

Q.U. wrote:It worries me even more so when I see this thread turn from "let's share our life experience to come up with good advice and solutions to this guy's problems because some of us already pulled through such stuff and we could be able to help him", into a "how to cut yourself to get the most pain out of it".
I disagree, but we already know that we differ on our view of this thread, as has been discussed before.Q.U. wrote:I see Tuor's words, and I agree. I am all for a "life advice" thread. I accept the need for a "feels" or "vent your stories" thread. But this has been neither.
Wow, that's so called for. Awesome.Q.U. wrote:Don't believe me? Then remember this: I fucking called it.
I don't see how it's "legitimate discussion" when it's not liable to be seen as particularly helpful for the people that need to post in here, at least not in the manner you were originally attempting said "legitimate" discussion.Q.U. wrote:I do see that I'm a pain for you guys trying to spark some legitimate discussion here, though. Sorry about that. So as not to disrupt the purpose of a potentially good thread any further I'm leaving you to it. I keep telling myself that I won't be posting here again and I keep failing at it. That's my bad.

And so do I. People ain't perfect.
