Why yes, I did tear them new assholes.

                          <div>         I should have realized sooner that it wasn't safe.  VOX groups just aren't safe as support groups.

First I found that all of my posts were making it to Google searches.  I have no desire to air my dirty laundry to the world at large.

Then I found some self-proclaimed "health expert" bombing every health-related group perceivable with a post, and some "amateur bodybuilder personal trainer" smack-talking in it about the obesity "epidemic" as if the only problem there was that people were too gluttonous about food.  The expert defends that asshole, so… yeah, I did tear both of them new assholes.  Sheer gall, because the expert also started ranting about America overmedicating and how we needed to do alternative stuff instead… goddamn, what a prick… how can anyone logically imply we should ditch our proper treatment because "experts" imply that pharmaceutical companies are now The Man, oppressing us into medicated oblivion?  Gimme a fucking break.

Hey, free speech is one thing, but to muscle into a group with no shred of evidence that one is trained in mental health matters and then start preaching, they have no right to censure me when I say it's offensive.

They can squat on a pike if they don't like it.  Only problem is– now I have to ignore their retort, because as tempting as a flame war would be… just not worth my time.  Sure, I dug my grave, now I have to lie in it… yeah yeah yeah, but I'm not that sorry.

Wherever you see "jaklumen", that's me. The username is still unique as of 2016, so it's just me, and only me. It's the real me, because I'm bad at faking otherwise.

  1. Oops, I see now that any group creator has the option to make the group private.However, the thought that someone would not make a "Mental Disorders" group private… well, that gives me pause.
