Sorry to hijack, but I would sincerely like to know how I could have expressed myself in my post above without being uncivil? I know, I should probably know this sort of thing already, but I've been thinking about this and worrying and not quite being able to work it out, so any help would be appreciated. (And it will help me be more civil to you in future, too! lol)

Here's what I wrote that got my PBC:

"They really don't sound terribly supportive, and maybe support would be a good thing to offer here?"

I know I wasn't at my best when I wrote it, but I thought I was still being civil. Obviously, I thought mistakenly... :^P

OK, so if I had written something more like:

"I don't think I would find your post supportive if it had been written to me?" Or "I think I would feel hurt if I read something like that written to me?" Maybe "They don't sound very supportive to me, and I think she needs support right now?"

Any suggestions? Any tips?

And I'm genuinely sorry for being uncivil. I guess I just need a refresher course...
