I hereby would like to encourage everyone to boycott any antagonizing posts on the forum.
Who needs this kind of hostility? None of us do. It does not promote emotional recovery at all - it impedes it. It always takes two to tango. If we choose not to engage in conflict, it cannot happen. Just think about it... we actually do have the ability to control it. It doesn't have to happen, and we have the power as a group to disallow it. All it takes is a little control. When you feel tempted to return fire... just put your pistol away. Then the hostile threads will fall to the bottom and they will be gone. Once the perpetrator realizes he cannot get you to react and chase his dangling carrot, he will either give up and leave, or try to become a functional member of the forum.
We have the power to do this. No one has control over us anymore.
In reviewing past posts from the forum, I came upon this one and wanted to post it bc I thought it was so good.
