From my perspective, your problem was that you became comfortable with the idea that people on the forum were not going to attack you opinions.<quoted text>
The,whole,thing is,WHY I came on Topix,..posted it after I was comfortable, on the,abortion forum ..as an argument against abortion.
When I came on the forum, I knew that my opinions were at odds with the opinions of most of the world's population ... so I expected my opinions to be attacked. After all, I came on the forum to attack other people's opinions ... so fair is fair.
When a poster with the avatar Mary Hammond stated that I murdered both of my daughters, I didn't take offence or report her. I recognized that she was offended that I would dare attack her Catholic religion as being based on lies ... and also I knew that I hadn't murdered my two daughters.
I suggest that if you allow people that post to have power over your own thinking ... then you will end up in a bad way emotionally within yourself. On the other hand, if you have strong self-esteem, you won't allow that to happen. You won't give your own power of thought away to others.
