>Is the statement "please be civil" ever addressed to a particular individual here except in the context of instances where he asserts the behavior has not occured?
Please cite one instance of Dr Bob asserting that the behaviour was uncivil.
One where you disagreed on his determination.
I don't understand the problem here...
>One example of critical service would be a service described as occuring in potentially clinical milieu in which people occassionally present with the complaint that "I might die in the next few hours if I don't get help."
Dr Bob isn't providing a professional service to us.
That is made clear from the multi-guess quiz.
IMO people shouldn't be allowed to say that kind of thing on the boards BECAUSE IT IS DISTRESSING TO THE POSTERS HERE AND THERE IS NOTHING WE CAN DO.
Dr Bob has no obligation to do anything in those cases.
None of us do.
Though posters typically urge people to get help IRL and Dr Bob provides information and links to enable people to get help IRL.
