Maybe it is just me

But anytime one finds oneself on a message board that boasts being 'democratic' and yet discovers that there is an 'ignore' button that lets people shut off input... well, I just don't find that to be very 'democratic'. Stifling potentially disagreeable discourse is a tactic used by... other political groups. Why does it exist here? Like I said, maybe it is just me.

Why does someone have to go insane before other will believe them (WARNING possible trigger)

When they say, "Hey, I am really suffering here and may need some help"? It seems that today, a person has to do something completely crazy in order to get attention. This has the opposite effect and garners the wrong kind of attention. It is a sad statement on our society when someone is in need of assistance and no one can find it within themselves to help. Personally, I am tired of being alone and of no use or worth to anyone else. I had dreams. I had goals. They weren't crazy. But, they became so for some reason. I don't think it is too much to ask that a person be able to pursue a living that makes them happy (as long as it is not evil or malicious). Yet, our society seems to feel that any pursuit other than the pursuit of wealth and power is a waste of time. Well, if I am a waste of time, then let me go. (By the way, this only applies to the 'unwashed masses'... if you have money, you can get plenty of help. Of course, only a small percentage of us have that kind of money, so that 'help' might as well not exist.)

(I suppose I should stop posting on anonymous message boards as well. All I am doing is wasting others time. No one here can help me either, so it is silly to even bring it up.)
