I am so sorry that your trawling of the forums led you to a person who is braver than either of us is ever likely to be. I am sorry that you read the posts of person whose words, whose spirit, whose passion for live exceeds your own. And mine.

How totaly dare you?

HIV does kill people. And the sunny face we put on it is, most charitably, a means to placate the hyterical among us.

The salient point here is that HIV does kill people. Good people, nice people, fucking heroes among us in whose wake we are severey, permanently diminished.

But the thing is, you most likely do not have this virus.

and to be the most possibly fair I can be at this terrible time, I  can only ask that you show the most basic respect and compassion for those who have this virus, who are living and dying from it.

This is not about you. It is not about any of us.

"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."

Look, i didnt mean to put anyone down.  I give lots of encouragment for people that are PoZ.  This is a misunderstanding forsure.  Im someone that has an unkown status, and im scared.  Im just scared to die.  Im scared of leaving my family and friends.  All of you have better knowledge of this than me.  So i can i ask you if things will be ok if i test poz? Im sure u were in the same shoes as I , im not putting anyone down.

Matty and JK

As much as understand your anger against Detpiston and his lack of respect I think it would have been best to have ignored his comments and given the Moderators time to respond to your reported post.

I personally don't see any need to take this further...but will leave it up to the other Moderators to voice their own opinion on this.

Detpiston....I hope a lesson has been learnt here today...respect the forums and it's members and they will respect you....you have been given good advise, listen to it, go and get your results and move on.


Never knock on deaths door..ring the bell and run..he really hates that.

Enough is enough already. You've been coming here for nearly a year now, yet you still refuse to test. I've just reviewed your entire thread and it looks like you don't really even need to test as you never once admit to actually having unprotected intercourse.

If you truly are so afraid to die, you'd get tested. Not knowing your status doesn't CHANGE your status. If you are positive as you so greatly fear, then you are putting your life in danger by not testing. The main group of people who are dying of this virus in the Western world today are those who leave it too late to find out they're positive.

It's up to you. Live in anxious ignorance or get tested and collect what I fully expect to be a negative result and get on with your life.

I'm giving you that time out I warned you about back in May, as your situation obviously hasn't changed. We cannot force you to test and get this over with, but we can stop you posting here until you've done so. You've got a month in which to do it. Now DO IT.

Do not create yet another account to get around your time out because if you do, you will be permanently banned, no questions asked.

Stop with all the drama, will ya!  We've given you HIV science-based responses and you just on indulging in histrionics about this and that which haven't happened and from what I can see aren't going to happen.

So we've done our part.You need to go and get tested to resolve this issue for yourself. We can't add anything more. And we aren't going to indulge you in using this site for your histrionics.

If you come back with more of the same you're going to get timed out.
