What exactly are you shaking your head AT?  That I agreed with his claim that some members gang up on others?  That this makes people afraid to post and contribute?  What exactly was offensive about it?  Don't try---again---to warp what I'm saying into something it is not.  This was not an attack on Ann or Matty, so I'm not even sure how you've worked them into your response.  You've previously done this in the  thread about facial fillers.  This is the SECOND time you've pulled this.  If his quote was directed at Ann or Matt, I apologize to them, but I saw it as a well-needed general criticism of the social dynamic of this forum, and the fact that he employed the word "cartel" rather than "Ann and Matt" wouldn't give me or anyone else scanning a thread reason to think otherwise. 

Pozbrit forgot to elaborate on how people here selectively take offense at minor or non-issues as a way of silencing posters or discussions they personally dislike.  In your response to me, we see perfectly how a member calls out to others so that the rightly described "gang up" can take place.  If we recognized political-correctness as a form of martial arts, this forum could support itself as a virtual dojo.  Thanks for demonstrating a procedure.  Don't bother responding because I'm putting you on block.

Wow. Such vitriol. And I suspect that youa re, like most others, going to peek from time to time.

Not that it matters, except simply being sad, and part of that stigma.

"Many people, especially in the gay community, turn to oral sex as a safer alternative in the age of AIDS. And with HIV rates rising, people need to remember that oral sex is safer sex. It's a reasonable alternative."

Wtf, Jkinatl2 is one of the most knowledgable contributors here, and he rarely, rarely get his timbers shaken.  When he does, it's always justified.  How much do you contribute, or do you just throw around your bitchiness, and call it contributing?

"Part of the stigma of HIV, to put this into proper threading perspective, is dealing with being on disability. Not being able to work, and living in a system that punishes efforts to do so with revocation of benefits, including the medications which make such efforts even remotely possible. There is a LOT of stigma associated with that, and to insinuate that some of us are milking said system is unfounded and hurtful.

It breeds shame, which addresses the stigma topic directly."

This is everything I would hope to say THANK YOU

this thread is so "signifying nothing," I wonder is it worth commenting on.
