Re: Proposing a LD subsection in the SIM forum
As an admitted LD whose thread was locked due to one poster's bashing and anger, I know I won't go back on SIM until it's a safer place to be. I had put the basher on ignore, but others were still engaged and thus the thread got locked.
Honestly, I was just trying to offer the LD perspective and advice, but I have yet to find any frustrated HD who responded with any kind of "huh, I never thought about it that way" response. Instead, the backlash just gets angrier and angrier.
So, I'll be curious to see if anything is done in this area. It reminds me of another site entirely, one for Nice Guys, where none of the SOs are allowed to post except for a single subforum. I think that you have to get perspectives from those who aren't like you so you can actually learn something. Yes, frustrated HDs should support each other, but as Deejo said, it's time for many to stop complaining and start listening. After all, that's how you learn.
