Yeah, that's about what I expected. /\
Not too long ago I insinuated over at those forums you just mentioned (irrelevance, anyone?) that people who just came to argue with our beliefs had questionable reasons for being there and I was branded as trying to control who comes and goes. Now you are suggesting I don't belong here. Funny how that works.
Oh and LDavis and Annie need a little reading comprehension help, because they very obviously misunderstood me something serious. One of them thought I was referring to her, and one of them got me all mixed up as soon as the word "mainstream" entered the picture. But attack away!
Elizabeth, I do hope whatever's upsetting you IRL settles down soon & you find some joy in your life. Totally serious about that. I found your posts to be disproportionately hostile, and I wonder what's going on with you that you feel it's normal and OK to say things like this. It's one thing to disagree with someone's viewpoints; it is quite another to make the attacks personal. I assumed you were referring to me because you quoted me directly. And then you proceeded to make mean, personal and, given the context, puzzling accusations. Now you're saying I "need a little reading comprehension help." Maybe you don't realize, but these statements come across quite personally, baffling so, in fact. I have to wonder just WHO is hanging around poking WHO? I also never attacked you, or anyone else for that matter. Go re-read my post to you. I defended myself against what I (apparently) mistakenly thought were comments directed at me, and then I went back to the subject of the thread: MMS.
I won't engage with you again if you continue with your insults, but I do feel the need to point out how hostile and personal your posts come across. If this wasn't your intent, you might want to rethink the wording (that's not a personal insult, but honest constructive criticism). However, if it IS your intent, you're doing a bang-up job! If it IS your intent, I'm sorry that you're in that mindspace. And just one more observation: when you're selling a product on the internet (ie, your book), YOU are your advertisement. Just something to think about.
