For a depressive, I must be quite a Polyanna. My take on Patty's question was that it had nothing to do with this site or the people who post here. I hope I'm right and that perhaps her interest has more to do with the recent attention to outcasts that band together and wear distinctive clothing to insulate and isolate themselves. Sometimes a question is just a question. I'm not familiar with this syndrome, Patty. Perhaps, it is known by a different name.
