We do not delete profiles, sorry. If you no longer wish to participate in the forums, then all you need to do is simply stop reading and stop posting.

And if it is so awful in here that you no longer want to be a member, why are you still around (and logged in) three hours after you started this melodramatic thread?  Some people just love attention, eh?

So you get mad, say you are leaving, ask a question about removing your profile, find out you can't and then use the straightforward answer you were given as your signature with a snarky comment.   What's up with that?  ??? ???

Sorry. I am kinda new to this fest so I have to Google some of the terms here, like snark∑y/ˈsnšrkē/. I am guessing from your post that you are one of those disappointed by my decision to stay. I cannot say it is my sole decision but if I am going to have a profile, I might as well stick around, besides, in between the nasty and caustic remarks tossed my way like some bad seed, some truly wonderful individuals have PM'd me, encouraged me and asked me to stay for a myriad of reasons, the least of which, they are tired of feeling out-numbered.

One thing has become abundantly clear in the last 24 hours or so on here, you can sure feel the love just as easily as the hate and self loathing. Anyway, glad you said something...I think.

To be honest i have no opinion on the the fact of whether you stay or not.  Not sure why you would get that impression.  Just because someone asks you a question or disagrees with you doesn't mean they want you to leave.  I just found it strange and somewhat a slap in the face to the forums, that you took a straightforward answer to your question and then added a snarky (sarcastic) comment to be your signature.

I gave you the same exact answer we always give to forum members when they ask the same question you did. You have not been singled out for special treatment, if that's what you think.

How many?  One?  I always find it quite laughable that those members who embarrass themselves with a swan-song (only to stick around and flame-bait others in the process) claim to get a gazillion PMs from an invisible, unnamed number of supporters.  I guess it is supposed to give them credibility?  Sorry, but once it has been lost this is something that cannot be regained.  Your supposed fan-club would actually have to come forth and express their support publicly, and they (if they actually existed) will not do it.

Ps./ It is quite dťclassť to send unsolicited PMs to other members telling them to "go F themselves."  I am sure that your supporters don't know you have been doing this, eh?  Do not worry, sugah, it has been reported.

You know Jan, I completely understand and AGREE with you but if you think that as of this moment I feel like coming here and asking anything, you are clearly mistaken. I have been raked over the coals, called "fucking dangerous" and accused of everything from "spreading the virus" to God knows what else in PM's. It's a good thing this isn't the welcome forum...hell...I would never be here and be subjected to this.

Burning bridges? I don't own a flame-thrower but it doesn't look like some peeps are going to put theirs down anytime soon now does it?

   Perhaps a breather is best right now, Drew...  those who have shown you support, myself included, know exactly what you expressed previously and why you have felt backed into a corner.  At this point your more or less are in the middle of a feeding frenzy and the sharks smell blood.  I would walk away at this point, not so much in defeat but as the bigger person.

   Once again, I hope you come back and if you need to talk just pm me.

So is this how we now treat new members? My comment about sedatives was I needed them, because once again a new member, very rough around the edges, upsets the forum and then gets lambasted for expressing his hurt. Is that what we have become? I believe the true power of this forum, is that we can withstand just about anything. If I remember correctly, another member recently came in and upset the forums. The same type of thing transpired, until some posters actually "listened" to the member, which allowed everyone to get a grip and accept him as new member.

This has been a very ugly event for me. It's one thing to raze a member who is only itching for a fight, quite another to kick a person when they are down. Could he have conducted himself in a better fashion? Certainly and so could a lot of other posters. Frankly I expected better from us.

That's fine Drew...but things do change, when you are ready you will know where to come..and trust me the support won't just be the "wonderful" people who are sending you nice PM's...it will come from those who are not afraid to be open with you in the forums, whether or not they are with you or against you.

Learning how to debated, disagree or argue without resorting to name calling is an art, and not everyone is good at that..including me, I get angry when people attack the very people who supported me and stopped me from going under when I was first diagnosed in 2002 and when I joined the forums in 2003.

Lets hope something positive can come from this besides a diagnoses. If nothing else, I can certainly appreciate the passion in the posts, all of them, whether I agree with them or not. I do not have the patent on HIV/AIDS and what I don't know scares me as much as what I do but it is the hope for a cure and even better treatment that I cling to. I have lost people too. I resent being characterized as "dancing on a cloud" (and please whoever said that, don't make it personal, I am talking about a generalization).

The idea that I have not buried friends is wrong.
The idea that I have not been sick is wrong.
The idea that I think I have all the answers is very wrong.
The idea that this hurts my soul is TRUE...painfully true.

I am sitting here now remembering a friend of mine who was diagnosed back in 2003. He did not have a support system, his family disowned him...you all have probably heard this story a million times. There was nothing I could say to encourage him that there were better treatments, that this disease was no longer an automatic death sentence. The last time I saw him was on his way into South Beach The Nightclub in Houston. While on vacation with my family, two days later, I got call, he had killed himself. Otherwise healthy, he could not handle the diagnoses. When I think back to the last minute I saw him, it's frozen in my mind. I can shut my eyes and see his face. All I can think about is that the lack of hope and promise did as much for as demise and probably more than the initial diagnoses.

One thing is clear, I don't want anyone to feel under-valued or worthless in this quest. I don't want to live on an HIV/AIDS playground where we take sides. If I have come across as anything other than passionate and compassionate I sincerely apologize. Sometimes I have to shut up to hear the screaming and there has been plenty of that.

I will give it my all to better understand where you all are coming from, I only ask the same.

A little unfair Skeebo, Drew is not exactly innocent in all this.

I have an idea. Let's stop assigning blame and taking sides. It's not productive. This bitch (HIV/AIDS) has created enough ugliness without this mindless banter on and on and on about who said what and why.

The idea that I have not buried friends is wrong.

But good. you don't wanna go there. it was shit.

A friend of mine (neighbour once) use to days (sommat like):

"You can't know what it is to live with one leg, till you have lived with one leg. I admire them people with one leg who are gung-ho about it, it takes me out of myself, makes me pep myself up.  Sooner or later, pessimism, or realism, will set in, usually just about the time when your crutch sticks in the drain grate when you are holding two bags of shopping. Now is different but I wouldn't swap the early days for anything. I am a fighter. We have to expect the best, and the worst."

She's married to the same bloke who fell off a motor bike with her, and has two kids. But guess it could have turned out different.

Glad you're sticking around D.  If for nothing else, we could use more Houstonians around here!  As I probably didn't say it before, welcome!

I PM'd Drew, not because of feeling outnumbered, but because I felt that he didn't understand the dynamics of this forum.  He obviously sought out support and though I don't always agree with him, I want him to receive the support that the awesome members here can offer. 

I didn't exactly fit in when I first joined, and I had to realize I was the new kid on the playground.  I still to this day don't understand the humor that some people use but have learned to smile about it.  I guess we all use a different arsenol of tools.

The thing the welcoming committee hasn't grasped is after they send their PM it usually gets forwarded to the person they are talking about. With a "see so-and-so says you're bad" attached.

Stay, you will need the help.
I have also received my shower of caustic remarks, I understand it, most of us have been in a roller coaster  emotionally and are very passionate in their believes.
Others just have that sense of humor its just the way they are.

But when time comes of giving you advice on VIH , everybody helps.

I can have my own faults I admit it, but I do really try to help others.

Stick around, we're not all so bad.   Jan is the only one of us with a halo and wings, and even HER wings molt sometimes   ;D


PS  I really can picture Jan with wings and a halo; of course, she would have a helmet and a sword too..... ;)
