& you choose to believe it or not.
On another note, *making* someone into a scapegoat is NOT the same thing as merely posting something that someone can choose to read. There is blame being put on someone besides the poster, this person is *forced* to become personally involved even though the rest of the readers are not put in the same shoes, in the first case; in the second case, there is no direct personal involvement for anyone except the poster, beyond reading.
THAT is the difference. I'm calling your bluff about this "tough love" nonsense. Do you do the same thing to your kids? Or anyone else you genuinely care for? If you do, how does it feel? There is no such thing as "tough love." & those people who think they are practicing it are either purposefully cruel & don't give a damn about the person they are acting on OR they have learned it from someone else & practice it blindly.
Give me a break, Fred. You never gave a damn about me as a friend. & to anyone else who does this to me, the same thing goes for you. I gave you hell because you were trashing my name, my forum identity, for no reason. If I wanted real "tough love" I'd ask someone I know who genuinely cares about me to hit me - & they wouldn't do it, not if they cared. I'd fully expect them to walk away.
