I can't speak about Dr Shrink, as I have not known him very long, at least not as that alias, and so far I have no desire to know him better. On the other hand, I watched Kaitlin being bullied daily on several threads for several years by people who allegedly were God's gifts to humanity, according to their own descriptions, and so if she seems a bit caustic, at least in her situation, she has had some reasons, though even I have mentioned to her a few times that she might be gaining more by cutting back a bit on her ways of presenting herself, since she is one of the smarter posters on Topix, and thus does not necessarily require the type of approach she sometimes uses.<quoted text>
LOL I don't know...I think most of us save him for the days that we feel like wallowing in a gutter!
On the other hand...are Kaitlyn's post any better?
We can always "justify" when someone is on our side...or we have some kind of connection to that person.
Over time we all build a reputation by the posts that we write...by the issues that we speak up against. We "know" each other by those reputations. Just as in real life (IMO) we guard those reputations online. Just as in real life...people will attack what we have worked hard to build.
Sad that we do that...if we can't build ourselves up on our own values, morals, characteristics...I suppose that the only other way to make ourselves "look good" is to drag someone else down.
I guess I find her kind of approach more difficult to understand when it comes from a person claiming to be a Christian, than from someone who has never claimed here to be a Christian. My knowledge of what Christianity stands for leads me to expect a bit different type of post from them, yet many 'Christians' here make Kaitlin look like a saint, in comparison.
Sorry, Kaitlin, I am well aware that you are quite able to stand on your own two feet without my two cents worth, but as you no doubt are aware, I am one to give an opinion anyway.
