If not here somewhere on Psycho Babble, where else on the Internet can one go to post when feeling wacky? Is there a place for drunk people or those on drugs to post when under the influence? What's wrong with inviting THEM here?
In a way, I love the wacky moments, when anything goes and everything rolls, when the writing does the writing without holding back. It's feel-good writing.
Why can't this be a wacky site too? For some of us, normal is quite that way - out of choice. I have my wacky moods and accept them. In fact, becaus of PB I even recognize them.
This site provides a great education, including all the wonderful links and book ideas that other posters post. You do a great service to those of us who struggle to simply understand, but you also do a dis service with your banning and shunning policy. At times it feels like a sick game.
Do you have moods Dr. Bob? Are you on AD's? Do you ban and block according to mood that particular day? Just wondering.
IMO there is only one reason why wacky posts should be deleted, and that is by the person who wrote them. Meaning, if I write something in a weak wacky moment it may feel good then, but a few days later it is going to be embarrassing.
On other boards you can go into your own post and edit or delete some time later. Personally, I think that would solve a lot of your problems here. BECAUSE, wacky people aren't wacky all of the time, only when in the mood.
