What do you think should be done, and who should do it?
Well said, Daniel. Good to see you here.
Thank you sir.
As you can imagine, this thread is one of the reasons I find howls of moral protest so unimpressive.
Well, I suppose http://www.********.org.
This last message, professing to be posted by "Hexi," actually was posted by that idiot "Adam Alexantropos." Because he has posted dozens of phony messages here tying to promote his website, I have blocked the name of that site. Perhaps with no further advantage to be gained by spamming here, he will simply stop appropriating names and identities.
By the way, habitual visitors to the forum will recall that this Alexantropos attacked me bitterly and irrationally, criticizing my reply to a young man who was concerned about his tendencies towards pedophilia, a piece I wrote months ago. Alexantropos was rude, ill-mannered, simply stupid, filling this site with all kinds of pseudo-scientific claims which were easily exposed as nonsense. Worst of all, he maintained that my reply to the young man would harm him irreparably.
A few days ago, I received a follow-up letter from the young man, which I will add to the original thread. Perhaps Alexantropos might even read it, and if he does, deliver the apology which he promised but never delivered. In any case, he now has no way to advertise his ego-trip on these pages, so perhaps he will simply disappear.
This guy Anthropos is worse than a troll. He entered this forum pretending to be an intellectual giant and a watchdog and savior of humanity. Instead he has shown himself to have the intellect of an idiot, and the moral courage of a beetle. When the doctor showed him evidence of his mistakes, he refused to admit them. Now that the actual subject of his rants, the boy who was afraid of being a pedophile, has written in favor of the doctor, not only does Anthro-beetle refuse to apologize, he tries in every way to attack this valuable website by assuming the names of real forum people and writing his garbage as if he were them. A real sicko loser with outrageous delusions of grandeur!
You don't realise I'm Whitewolf, do you?
What, does it bother you that we've stopped pointing out every alias you use?
Doug is right. You are worse than a troll. Much worse. You are a dickless gnome that trolls use for a doormat. You claimed moral and intellectual superiority, and just look at your idiotic behavior on this forum. You attacked the Doc. He replied respectfully. You accused him of doing harm to the boy who asked his advice. Now that boy has written to the Doc, saying that the advice was wonderful and has changed his entire life for the better. Do you even think about admitting your error? No, of course not, because in your distorted reality you are perfect. How can you stand to be such an asshole?
By the way, I know Whitewolf, and you are not Whitewolf. You can steal his name, but not his wit.
You got that right, DT. Anthropussy can't even feign wit, but WW knows how to come up with the jokes.
Good point, I'm not Whitewolf; I actually know how to use semi-colons.
I am only me, Adam Alexantropos. :l
Yes, you are only you, a guy who has acted like a total loser since first arriving here. Amazing that you continue to pollute this space with your useless trivialities under the sophomoric delusion that you are somehow "intelligent," and have something to add here. I've got news, Anthropussy, you aren't, and you don't.
At least the Doc found a way to block your spam website. I checked it out. It sucks, just like you do.
It's not my site. It has 50,000+ users and a huge amount of money is being made monthly. I'm surprised you've never heard of it. :l
You should make a topic on there, ask me to stop, and I will. Honestly, I need you to. Unless you're scared. ;D
BTW, this site doesn't make any money--no advertising, see, and nothing sold. So I guess that other site which for some reason you are promoting must be a lot better, right?
Before you leave, how about the apology you promised if the doctor was right and you were mistaken? Somehow you seem to have forgotten that. If you are any kind of man at all, that would be the very least you could do. I mean a real apology:
I am sorry that I came to your forum and criticized your work the way I did. I was totally mistaken. I hope that you will be able to forgive my foolishness in imagining that I know more than you about how to reply to questions about psychology and human suffering. Clearly, I do not. This will not happen again."
OK, OK, I give up. I am sorry I offended you, Dr. Robert. I had no right to come on your forum acting like an expert when obviously I know far less about these matters than you do. You were completely correct in your advice to the boy, and I was foolish to question it. You are a train professional, and I am not.
I have learned a lesson here, and I will do better in the future. Please accept my apology and allow me to keep participating on your forum.
No. You jump through a hoop.
Thanks for your gracious apology. I accept it completely.
By the way, it never was my intention to ban you from the forum. All voices are permitted here.
why does this still happen?
because 'we' deem culture as sacrasant over the rights of the individual. the total seems more crucial than the sum of its parts, which i believe is a survival of the species mentality. because people are so doggedly intent on survival that they'd rather join the 'protection' of the herd than form an identity based on the natural inclinations of their real natures.
when we challenge their insane ways we are seen as challenging the survival of another race, thus inviting potential attack on our own survival.
this policing (often extreme and absurd like your example) of human nature will always exist in its various forms.
it is a tragedy that individuals suffer for the apparent survival of the race. But who said life is fair?
some people do indeed speak out, and in this way change is incremental. But put simply, only a few people in this world are willing to put themselves on the line.
I have a close relationship to this culture cos my parents are from that part of the world. I know first-hand about the tragedy of the sacrificed, wasted individual mind, at the hands of when culture goes from being a protector to a saboteur. (inbreeding is a perfect example).
and those women who claim they like living inside a tent who say, 'it brings me close to god and it's my choice,' - stockholm syndrome anyone?
