WOW....where the heck have I been. Reading this post makes me ask myself if I have been in a coma. I wasn't aware that anyone got the "boot" but I haven't been around that much lately. I know what you are saying and the thing I brought to light a while back was the fact that so many people read posts but very few replied. Rosie cleared that up by saying that a lot of people don't quite know what to sat so they say nothing. My point was that just a few words would mean a lot rather than none. If there are any "clique's" here, I am not aware of it. Again, I have to refer to my post a month ago.
Here is my reply to your post. First and foremost, you have not hurt my feelings at all. If you did, that would mean I was guilty of something. I think it all comes down to this. THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO ALL so do not take this out of context. Some members are so full with their own troubles that they post but don't reply to others. They don't realize that they are doing this because they are so upset and depressed. They may be newbees and don't realize that it is OK to post other members. When we are depressed, we tend to discard others because we are so full of self pity. It's a natural reaction.
I fully understand what you are saying and you are right, however, if we don't bring things to light, they will never be seen. Keep posting. I know you are here and I'm sure the other's do too. If you offend anyone with your post, so be it. The door can swing both ways!
