If you're blocked, your voice is stilled. Do you really think that helps others as much as allowing your voice to continue to be heard?

At times I find Babble, and human interaction, a bit overstimulating, and I need a break from Babble. My therapist encourages me to step away from Babble until I can engage here productively again.

If you need a break, it's fine to take one. But wouldn't you rather take one on your own terms, not Dr. Bob's?

You say that others have written their support. Are you saying they support you martyring yourself for them by having your voice silenced by a block, for things they are unwilling to be blocked to say? I support you to remain here, and to phrase your thoughts in such a way that you can continue to be heard. I can't help but think that would be a better choice for those who agree with your point of view.

Martyrdom, freely chosen, is highly overrated, IMO. Certainly there are times when it is not freely chosen. But I don't see this as one of those times when there is no other way to stay true to your beliefs. It's possible to express your opinions while staying within the civility guidelines. If you don't wish to, that's fine and it's your choice. But I don't see how it's a better way to exercise your principles.
