You don't give an answer ever.

Explain yourself in more than just 'I don't like that idea'. There needs to be reasoning for your words to merit influence. It's philosophy. <shrugs>

Again, just because you disagree with someone's opinions doesn't mean they aren't giving you an answer.

Lets look carefully at the discourse.

If you're not raising the level of understanding for people, and just saying "I don't like it", it's not working for rational discourse.

It's like "I don't like what you say but have no obligation to explain why".

That's simply disruption.

I love to learn. That's why I ask people to explain themselves. That's how to learn.

Here, asking someone to explain themselves is 'authoritarian'.

On my posts, I call bullshit bullshit.

If you're not here for the same purpose, I do not accept disruption.

If I need to do what I did on FB, which was ban a thousand people so I could have space, I guess I'll need to do that if I decide to put more effort into the transition.

I'm going to start with the people I consider bullshiters on this thread, so they don't bother me on other threads.

Solidarity and collective thinking go together. I'm not looking for banter from guys who just do that. I'm looking to work.

If you don't want anyone to talk to you, why don't you just make a forum, post what you want to say, and then lock the thread so no one can offer their perspective?

Well it is a question for me, the relation between mental health and activism, which is a focus for me.

It's pretty simple to expect to not be attacked in the mental health forum for talking about legitimate psychology.

The accusations are getting intense from people who are anti-psychology.

That's not anything sensible in the real world of real work.

How can there be cohesion between anything if I can't relate activism to real science, in the absence of mumbo-jumbo anti-science?

I just at least be able to say anti-science is bullshit in the mental health forum.

I'm kind-of confused that people think that's OK.

It's just wrong and Whack. And it seems to be 'normal' here. It's saddening and discouraging. <sigh>

Yes, and I gave you a response in our original interaction and you disregarded it because you don't like it. Jump on down from your moral pedestal for one moment.

You're hurting your own cause more than helping anything... and for the best, you seem to want things to be your way and ignore the individual concerns and desires. You're literally ignoring an entire aspect of existence as a conscious being capable of interacting with the environment.

you need to quote what you're talking about, because there's no relevance to this conversation anymore.

You don't seem to have a point about the topic.
