> You didn't mention that at the time I was on the receiving end of numerous rhetorical questions from "MPD" patient(s) whom I still believe were posting using multiple "handles".
I didn't mention that because I didn't know that. I am sorry if you felt you have gotten a hard time by some one / people from this site. If you think that someone is posting under multiple posting names then it may be worthwhile to pass that on to Dr Bob - that is not allowed here.
Regardless of whether that was or was not the case that doesn't address or alter anything I have said. Though I can understand that sometimes people do things they regret when they are hurting. Is that what you mean? That you were hurting and said stuff you regret either to them or to other posters?
You might find people to be more sympathetic to your hurts if you show more sympathy to their hurts.
>I'm coming off my 3rd (?) banning. I find it almost impossible to state my opinions without getting banned. Seems some opinions are by their very nature considered uncivil, no matter how carefully they are stated. I've always been careful to attack ideas only -- not people -- but I still get banned.
This leads me to think that you are trying to work out what (if anything) you did wrong.
A lot of people find it hard to work that out.
People here may be willing to help you figure that out if you genuinely want to know.
I regret having gotten so upset about what you said in the BPD thread. But can you see how someone with BPD could take your comments as a personal attack against them? - and not just because they are mentally unwell.
