It does, however, mean that whenever I answer that kind of thing, or post my own opinions, I get hammered for it. I've finally had enough.

I'm saddened at the loss of a forum where I've been welcome, especially since feeling welcomed is something that I haven't had a lot of over the years, and so I feel like I'm cutting myself off from friends...but I just couldn't take it any more.
