all of the time, all of the people some of the time, but you can't please all of the people all of the time.
The Internet is like a worldwide block party. Anyone can decide to drop in, whether they "live here" or not. Salesman will be attracted to the aggregration of bodies. Disrupters (those who's lives are so empty they can only find enjoyment by dragging others down to their misery) will show up. Takers who truly are CH but, for whatever reason, choose not to contribute, will drop by to skim the cream off the top of the milk and then disappear. Mis-diagnosed sufferers of severe HAs will show up and hopefully listen, learn and move on to places they can find more suitable help.
And the second hand on the clock will continue ticking through all of it.
"Visitor" decided to diss the Chat registration requirements. While rude, and not done in a particularly adult fashion, this is his/her right.
Friends, including new friends who also had to think about revealing some personal info, defended your decision to set the Chat requirements.
Above all else, life is about balancing the good with the bad. Any one of us, should we have the opportunity to meet TerryS' leprechaun, would have the same three wishes:
1- Cure my friends of CH
2- Cure those I've yet to meet of CH
3- Oh yeah, if you can, cure me.
Everyone here deals with CH, either personally or as a supporter. Many also contend with other illnesses, like cancer, MS, epilepsy, hepititis, Crohn's, etc, etc, etc. Yet we're still here. Most work, live lives, have marriages/relationships, hobbies, contribute to OUCH, raise children, care for pets, grow gardens, whatever.
To let one ignorant fool who lacks the guts to even post their email address annoy you or disrupt the board is just plain foolish. Mosquitos are annoying, but I've yet to hear a clusterhead talk about how painful they are.
