You got an acknowlegment of the problem within a few hours. (on a holiday weekend at that!!!). I honestly don't see how you can get from that to your conclusion that this is personal.
Pardon me for interrupting, but on a mental health board, it's precisely during a holiday weekend - when many of us experience more pronounced symptoms - that a board such as this should be more carefully watched for technical problems. Many of us are isolated in the first place.
I can't speak for Phillipa, but I find your presumption that she looks to a computer for emotional support or to feel cared about to be demeaning and insulting.
Good grief, indeed.
