When people talk about their many-houred attacks or their somewhat-common double-sided attacks, or that if they breathe in virtually anything that doesn't come out of their O2 dispenser they'll get attacked by Clusterboy, that doesn't do anyone any good. When this information is read by people who don't really know what a CH is -- someone new to CHs and searching the web for common symptoms that they share, e.g. -- they can get the wrong idea and figure "since I don't share the same symptoms at all with (this or that) person as mine are 1-3 hours in length, are on one side and I could never type with my version of an 9. I must not have CHs." And that's one more person that we can't help, as many of us have been helped here.
I think that we need to get back to what we used to do only a few months back and call a spade a spade more often then we have been lately. I admit that I've been pretty slack in this area lately too. Hell, I've been pretty slack in posting at all lately. But it doesn't do the non-CH person to go on thinking he or she is a clusterhead. And it doesn't do us any good to allow incorrect information out there about CHs.
