August, I know how you must feel, but, please don't think of yourself as an idiot. You did what you thought was right. By what you were led to believe was right. That post tore me apart also. And I even noticed a "hole" and choose to ignore it. A while back a person took a sufferers' post seriously and did something that didn't need to be done. It
happens especially on this kind of forum. That is open to the public. And it has to be for people to be become aware of CH and for newbies to be able to get where they belong.
As far as motive is concerned my opinion is that someone with the IQ of a tree toad was out looking for their 15 minutes of fame. Thought they would write something, be able to see it in print, and see what kind of replies they could generate. It's a sick attitude I know but when you don't have any friends I guess they thought they needed the response. Think of
this person as the beast made human. You fight the beast and you have to fight this. Don't let him/her win!
I would think the people at the Gates Foundation would understand after the whole situation is explained to them. They must realize a forum such as this is subject to this type of abuse. But, it is all we have. We, all of us, have become a little smarter because of this. Yes, it hurts. But so do the words "get over it, it's just a headache".
I know your a very caring, loving, person from reading your posts and your dedication to helping is to be commended. Please don't stop doing what you know is right. Next time it may be real. Please take the whole thing as a learning experience because we need you August!
I hope you find peace soon and can get back to what is important.
