I wish the OP had done that, herself. Funny how that works. I'm sorry, I don't excuse those types of remarks on a message board simply because one may be angry, confused, or frustrated. Many people have been there and many have still managed to conduct themselves with dignity. Sure, people handle things differently, but I'm going to comment on a post I take issue with, regardless of how others view it.
Maybe I'm just naive or confused, but I fail to see where any of this provides "evidence" for anything... ? Maybe she did and maybe she didn't get what she wanted, but frankly it didn't affect me either way and I chose to take the time to read it and respond for which I take personal responsibility. I guess it was worth the time to me (then again, I have a lot of that right now - LOL). I responded to fear with love, which is my only goal in any situation where someone is either genuinely hurting or, if they are being disingenuous, then hurting indirectly and expressing it inappropriately by being hurtful.
And by all means, you should comment on posts you take issue with... I certainly do. I like to think that just because others are offensive doesn't give me the right to retaliate likewise, but that doesn't stop me from speaking up... I just take a different tack. Granted, I don't do that perfectly by any means, but it's a goal.
"Kill them with kindness" might be another of those mottos that I like.
