Things are getting a bit too heated and intense for me.
Maybe I'll get a block, maybe I won't.
At this point all I can say is 'whatever'.
Angel Girl - Atticus protested against the automated asterisking system. His protest was to turn it off because he felt he was perfectly capable of inserting his own asterisks.
Dr Bob replied that it was a safety net and that he could turn it off but if he swore he would be blocked.
Atticus turned it off and at that point chose to accept the consequences of 'unintentionally' swearing without asterisks.
The words c*nt and f*ck unasterisked are not appropriate to this site. There were a few boo boo's when the automated system was first set up. I was just fooling around but I stopped once I realised that some people really are offended.
I know that you weren't trying to get me blocked. But I feel bad that people would suggest that I am getting special treatment. I feel guilty and I am not sure what for.
Maybe Dr Bob made a bit of a boo boo in your case. I don't know. But once you started acting out then there was no way the block could have been rethought without reinforcing your acting out.
I don't have a problem with people expressing their emotions. I don't have a problem with you expressing your emotions. But when they are SO VERY INTENSE and that intensity is so very constant then that is something that I personally find really hard to refrain from reacting too. That is my failing. I appreciate that. But I see the cycle being played out over and over and over and I don't want to be part of it anymore. I have to jump off it for my own mental health. I can't cope with it anymore.
And that tells me that I need a break.
I think it would be a good idea if we do not post to each other.
I am sorry if I have hurt you.
I just can't deal with this anymore.
I do need a break.
