This is sadly true. Damaging a psyche through mistreatment can be as debilitating as damaging a pair of kidneys.
As for Dr. Hsiung, I don't know what are his reasons for practicing medicine - or if he even practices. I certainly don't know what are his reasons for providing Psycho-Babble to the world are. It seems to me to be a thankless job at this point. I, for one, appreciate his efforts and personal investments made towards the maintenance of this online community for the past 15 years.
I, for one, benefited a great deal from learning new interpersonal communication skills during the PBC days. However, I disliked the methodology employed for enforcing rules of civil discourse. They resulted in what I think were extended posting blocks, the lengths of which were not commensurate with the infraction being sanctioned. Ultimately, this enterprise ignited a frenzy of contentious posting on the Administration board that seemed to be this website's main attraction. I don't have an alternate methodology to offer, however. I really haven't worked on one. Has anyone else? Is there any need for the moderation of this website?
Thank you once again, Robert Hsiung, MD.
