@Rockhead,
Yet another useful explanation.

You might be surprised how well I regard Chai. But, not your business. She and I have snarled on occasion, but at least from my end, I'm a fan if not for every flume. At the least I'm a fan of Chai's courage. I don't need instruction on this.

I care about Mr. Chai.

I'm not sure what you are on about, Rockhead, except for not liking me and being mr. defense for chai with vaporous sentences.

@Rockhead,
Go to bed and Good nite aren't good arguments.

So you were pals with a mod, lovely.
The mod who paid your way?

I was not stupid back then, though my wording was not spot on. I had been fond of you, and I suppose I still am. I expected to enjoy a friend, and met a guy ready to protect all of us... and that got creepy.

Re Chai - I do feel remiss re the thread, but it was a Miller attack to start with.

Past that, I care, and I don't really give a **** who believes me.

You may now kiss my ass on the OH...

(do we wanna go public with all we know, smart lady? see you next tuesday)

please have another snort of cheap booze on me as a last shot...

C'mon guys, please stop. This makes me feel bad for having had a part in starting.

Sometimes osso, there aren't any good arguments. This is one of the times, just let go.

And Rockhead, if she doesn't want to you letting go would work as well. Please?

I just got in from work...tired and longing for a blow job and a pork chop sandwich....and now I have to digest the idea that sometimes certain individuals on A2K can become bitchy? where's my valium? I'm distressed....

@shewolfnm,
To Shewolf (and the forum at-large):
I read this post with great interest as I've been on Abuzz and A2K for almost all of the time that both of the forums have been in existence. As an aside, I will say that I've clashed with Miller on a few occasions - mostly all of which occured on Abuzz.

As Shewolf wrote, I think it's valuable to discriminate or distinguish between the individual person and the online personna. It's is easy to post some thoughts and make comments and have a visceral but not-well-thought-out responses to someone else's writings. It's a whole other story to imagine that you know something significant about the person themselves.

When I came to A2K I pretty much ignored Miller. Those weighty HC issues, as I viewed them on most threads, I chose to look up myself with OTHER online resources or talk about with esteemed professional friends and acquaintances in the HC field. I don't rely on this forum to make medical decisions for me..or even shape my understanding of those weighty medical issuses and/or ethical matters involving HC industry. The fact that she was correct ior incorrect or insensitive didn't faze me. I just didn't see the need to be involved. Why give more importance, credence or attention to someone who you may not enjoy? That just baffles me.

That being said, I object to what I see as character assasination. Not that at times with some individuals stern criticism isn't worthwhile and useful; however, IMHO, I think the best thing to do when you have animosity towards someone on a forum is either deal with it 1-on-1 or ignore them. When it gets personal and public as someone really gets into using the public forum as a whipping post, then it invites a "piling on". That sort of piling on, when it should occur, doesn't serve the community well. We are a community, aren't we?

Or is this forum just a bunch of contributors on an anonymous forum with no sense of community at all? Perhaps, it's a case of different people having differing perceptions of what a community is..and what an online forum is or should be?

I tend to look at this as a community, though, I admit to having gotten a bit personal in my past, but I feelthat I matured as a community member. Perhaps, others choose not to, which is their right. The community often suffers when more of those who don't feel the citizenship in the community, choose to pile on someone who they feel a need for some harsh public criticism. I choose differently.

@Ragman,
I agree with most of what you say, Ragman, but the focus on this thread should be concern over Chai's husband and what Chai herself is going through.

When I was hospitalized, I also encountered some insensitive health care workers. I understand Chai's anger. Chai probably used Miller as "shorthand" for insensitive health care worker. (I often use "Gus" as shorthand for all kinds of fetishes.)

i apologize for making a joke, but i was trying to give another example

Anyway, I hope Chai lets us know how she and Wally are doing.

I agree with points 1 and 2, however, regarding point 3, Chai2 was merely implying that Miller is insensitive, hardly a "character assassination". I've seen much worse said to and about cjhsa, omsigdavid, gunga, spendius, tth, and others.

Much ado about nothing going on here so let's drop it.

Chai, my father had the same issues (minus the loose cable, that must have been beyond belief frightening) and had his defibrilator replaced recently. the part i hate most is that i cannot be there with him at that very moment, bring him to the hospital and wait, but have to worry worry in a faraway land. i hope your husband recovers well and without any complications, it is a routine surgery, they say.

miller, well, she's not here to speak for herself, so no comment on her personna, but the unkindness and just dumb insensivity of some people who are entrusted to care for people in vulnerable situation can truly be mind-boggling. and that leads to more feelings of helplessness and fear. i wish personnell went through a more rigorous people skills training, though some people are just not receptive towards those skills. all you can do is complain to those above - might feel snitchy, but at least others won't have to go through that. and, well, just push through in a survival mode. good luck to both.
