> I think you're on to something. It seems that some people post with the hope/expectation of agreement and support. And when a response isn't in agreement, they get bent out of shape. What do you think?

I *always* post with the hope and expectation of agreement and support. If people disagreed with me or said unsupportive things I would feel rejected, humiliated, distressed, disillusioned and worthless. Maybe that’s the same as ‘bent out of shape’. I prefer to think of it in terms of vulnerability.

On the other hand, if people make a gentle effort to persuade me to look at things from a different perspective, I feel valued and cared for.

Welcome to my world; please drive carefully ; )
