Cut the philosophy sh*t

I think that any discussion regarding any kind of philosophy is the last thing anyone needs on this forum., Discussing Nietzsche, Hegel, Polany, is like trying to put your fire out with gasoline. I am in to that stuff as well but now is not the time in my opinion for any of you to be discussing such things of that matter. I have cut the philosophy out of my mind for quite some time now, and boy do I feel really good.

Everyone here is entitled to their opinion. I hear all three of you. We're back to freedom of speech and the need, a real need here, for people to express themselves about this miserable illness in ways they connect with -- whatever that way is.

Perhaps we could have a philosophy forum. We have religious, alternative therapies forums, etc.

I don't think we have something specific like that. And there is always "That's Life". But I know sometimes discussions get missed in forums other than the main one.

We can work this out.

Sigh, moved to "That's Life" as this is going to get ugly? :shock:
J.Utah, read your PM from me. A post in the main forum that starts out with the word shit usually doesn't last that long there anyway. This was directed at a group mudslinging, not at one person.
There ARE alternative forums here to explore these things. A spiritual forum, an alternative therapies forum, "That's Life", etc., etc. How many different forums would you like?

Read the description of each forum. The different forums were created by James for this very purpose.

Why this has to turn into a battle is beyond me. :shock:

Exactly there are alternative forums here. So why make a thread disregarding entire areas of explanation when its apparently important enough to comprise its own forum? And to say that the general forum should be COMPLETELY free of any philsophical thought regarding DP is ridiculous. Topics directly relating to the spiritual or philsophical ideas and DP should go on either thats life or spirituality, however people will interpret their experiences differently and we should allow that.
This board, in one incarnation or another has been in existence since @1987. These arguments about what's relevant and irrelevant in the main forum have gone on just as long.

James was kind enough to set up many separate forums as some people, as you note by andy's post, don't want "X", "Y", etc. in the MAIN forum. Posts DO get lost that way. It was the general consensus that things be divvied up.

Don't understand the problem here. This is a free site, but it also belongs to James and Sarah. Be thankful this is here in the first place.

You can't please anyone all of the time. SIGH, SIGH, SIGH

So how did this work before this internet thing?
You would have been alone or with few who understood.
No truer words were ever said. Hey, there are some of us here, cough, who wrote our papers in high school and university on these old machines called typewriters, and we had to use this stuff called White-Out to correct the innumerable mistakes at 2 a.m. on a paper due at 8 a.m. Ah, those were the days.

I was diagnosed in 1975. Believe it or not, there wasn't Prozac, there wasn't the internet, and by God, there wasn't Britney Spears! How did I manage, LOL.

Ah, life is rich.

But serioulsy, when I found this forum -- 1999 I believe, May, when I first got online (and finally parted with my old DOS Dell Dinosaur) -- I found I wasn't alone. Why therapists don't mention that is beyond me.

Wait a minute. Andy's board started in 1997, NINETY SEVEN.

A few other sites existed, one on AOL that I stumbled across on a friend's Apple computer -- she had money, I didn't.

Also I haven't been drinking,

A lot of folks have been alone for a long time. This board is gold.
