    Having had a week away from home, I'm astonished at the way some posters have started to behave. This site seems suddenly to be full of vitriol.

    Now I don't pretend to be every one's favourite pussy cat, and I will always be as outspoken as I choose to be, but I do not attack people personally, I only attack what they believe if I am convinced that their beliefs are anti-social or detrimental. I don't attack the person propagating that belief.

    Now we have a situation arise where some of our stronger ladies are being maligned as uncaring and bigoted. Worse, some of these personal attacks are followed up by: "I don't expect that you will bother to reply", "I know what you will say" or some other comment that is specifically designed to restrict the accusee's reply. A real WT type of gagging!

    I'm not so naive as to expect everyone to be full of sweetness and light, I've come across some pretty heavy criticism myself (including being labelled a heartless "curd") - whatever that is - and I do enjoy some cut and thrust in our dialogues, but I just gotta say, we can't go on with the personal insults that are happening right now.

    Perhaps the insulters should stop a moment and realise that every time they insult someone, they alienate themselves from the dozens of people who hold the insulted one in high regard.

    I had to say all that!

    I agree wholeheartedly with everything you say...
    It seems to me that there are some on here who want to behave in a judgmental way...

    you took what I said out of context, I responded to your seemingly heartless response to someone who clearly needs help. That was the way I saw your response, you don't know Azzazel, so how can you say that she is lying, You know this topic is uncalled for, you know you took me out of context, and as for a personal attack you know you are wrong, believe me if I was going to personally attack you you'd know about it big time. I think that you should give ppl the benefit of the doubt otherwise you are just as bad as the elders in the JW org, disfellowshipping without even really listening or even believing the person who came here for help, SHE CAME HERE FOR HELP, and those who made an attack on her should be ashamed!!!!
