You are taking this rather personally fresco. As I pointed out to izzy, I've not singled anyone out by name, and, in fact, I don't even recall who the individuals are who were clinically discussing the person's mental illness. (I think I may now have a clue though as to at least one of them).
What matters is not what the person's mental state actually is, or how I define or use "genuine mental health issue." What matter is whether or not the people exhibiting the behavior I've described believe the person is suffering from a mental illness. If they do not, then they were simply engaging in a unique way of dealing with a jerk, but if they do, they were being cruel.
I provided for the possibility that these folks don't believe the person has a mental illness, my criticism of the behavior is only applicable if they do.
In any case it's my opinion. I think it's bad form. I also think bashing-threads
are bad form but I know not everyone agrees with me on that. You've made it clear that you disagree with my opinion in this case.
Thanks for your opinion.
