This is of course even more true for members whose illness includes features of paranoia. Yet, the administrator of this forum lets it be, while handing out bans for people who don't censor themselves when saying the word 'sh*t'.

Have you used the "Notify Administrators" located at the bottom of the post page?
I am guessing that Dr. Bob has not yet found equitable grounds for censoring Lou Pilder. The doctor used to proscribe "over-generalization" and "exaggeration". Perhaps they can be used again. Is a post an exaggeration if it reflects accurately a citation located elsewhere on the Internet? Historically, many life-saving innovations were at one time considered to be bunk by the majority medical opinion. Lou Pilder does bring to the table challenges against mainstream thought regarding the safety of psychotropic drugs.
12 years ago, I was laughed at for this:
"* Does Prozac cause suicide? Yes."
This sounds a lot like the stuff Lou Pilder is writing now, right?
Time has demonstrated the legitimacy of my concerns as is demonstrated by the placement of a black-box warning on antidepressants.
Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.
