I’m here less and less these days, and I’ve put my finger on at least one of the reasons why: the persistent inability or unwillingness of so many posters to set aside their own peculiar neuroses before posting. Anita Vacation recently posted a thread entitled, My nineteen-year-old son went to the beach and while he was gone I moved away. And my god, people were “shaking with pique,” describing horrible occurrences that might have had some slight relationship to a particularly unpleasant extrapolation from the OP. (Generally based on a failure to notice that the son in question was, ahem, nineteen and thus past the age of majority in, I believe, every state in the United States and many jurisdictions worldwide.)
To which I want to scream: STOP IT! At least try to be rational and think before you post. I don’t care if it’s the hottest button for you in creation, if you know it’s a hot button, it’s up to you to switch it off. Emotional responses aren’t fighting ignorance; at best they’re evidence of treating the SDMB as if it’s a shrink. It isn’t.
