> I got to thinking about this and found myself feeling very uncomfortable with those persons who really don't disclose about self but are more than willing to say something about what someone else has posted and especially when it is some sort of platitute.

It's fine to post your reaction to others *very carefully* using I statements and speaking more of your own issues in the matter, but please be careful about how you characterize the posts of others (such as referring to their responses as platitudes). It can be therapeutic to express yourself, but this isn't necessarily the place.

Unfortunately the more indirect you are in what you say (using the global you here), the broader the net of the people who may feel included. So being indirect is likely to increase the number of people who potentially feel accused or put down rather than reduce the number.

If you're in any doubt, it might be good to ask a civility buddy to preview your post. I generally do so myself.

If you or others have questions about this or about posting policies in general, or are interested in alternative ways of expressing yourself, please see the FAQ:

Follow-ups regarding these issues should be redirected to Psycho-Babble Administration. They, as well as replies to the above posts, should of course themselves be civil.

Dr. Bob is always free to override deputy decisions. His email is on the bottom of each page. Please feel free to email him if you believe this decision was made in error.

Dinah, acting as deputy to Dr. Bob
