> & chaos go take a look at some of the threads on this site, particularly those that relate to Flora:

Omigod, dj! That place scares the bejesus out of me! Every time I go there, I'm looking over my shoulder in paranoia for 24 hours afterwards! Yes, there's Flora. What about that Gatekeeper thread? Alex?

For those who have never visited the Harvard Depression Forum BB, it's rather like a trip to bedlam! Flamers crawl out of the woodwork there (they even have their own "mascot flamer" called The Troll!). To add to the confusion, posters aren't required to add their names, and most don't, so there's little or no sense of community there.

One thing I like best about PsychoBabble is that I come to "know" its posters, the demons they're fighting and the meds they use to fight them. I've been away from this board for a while (or lurking at times) due to two nasty trials with AD's that failed - I didn't have the mental acuity to contribute. I'm now in washout mode and seem to be slightly hyper (as is probably obvious since my name is all over the place here!). My point is that it was nice to return and catch up on the progress of some of the 'old-timers' and meet the new posters by name and (usually) diagnosis.

I did agree with a most of Weary's original suggestions for streamlining the board a bit, and I must commend his/her organization and wit in composing that post. My biggest pet peeve is the retrieval of a huge thread from the archives and bringing it's bulk to the current board. I'd much rather posters wrote, "I'm commenting on a post in the [date] Archive entitled [title/date/poster]..." If I remembered the original thread, I'd keep reading - if I didn't, I'd go back to the archive to refresh my memory. I'm also a proponent of two PsychoBabbles (one technical/one general), but I understand the problems it would create with overlapping topics and (for me at least) the confusion as to where the heck did I see that post that I read earlier and now want to respond to.

But I digress from the original post here. Take dj's suggestion and check out the Harvard BB if you want to increase your appreciation of PsychoBabble!
