The duality of Man.
That Jungian thang.......
Which I will explain after the video.
Yeah 145 has been sort of a hot topic around here the last few weeks. To say the least.
And yeah I have been one of the people front and center in that "battle". For better or worse.
And sometimes it has been for the better.
And frankly. Sometimes it has been for the worse.
And believe it or not. Well it has always sort of been on my conscience.
And I did send this to someone on curezone today who I was discussing the matter with.
"It's weird. I have probably rided' this woman more then anyone on curezone. Which is why my name keeps popping up in her posts. And all the threats against me etc...
But I have always felt a little bad when responding to her in my own, sort of blackngold way. Hehe. Yeah, you have seen a lot of the tongue in cheek and crazy stuff I can say when cornered.
Yeah, what she says is soooooooooo ridiculous.
Fortunately I am not the WM here. Or a regular poster anymore. Or someone that people look to for guidance.
And that is a very free feeling. And I can come here and speak my mind, and it is not a big deal for me. Unlike some of the other regulars here.
Hey, it's just BnG being BnG!...
So I do feel bad for Tony and Trap and Wombat and Glax. etc... etc... etc... And the others she has singled out.
I truly wish 145 well. This is not the site for her. Or at least Trap's forum is not the forum for her.
So I hope she concentrates on the positives that she can bring people. Which are probably many.
And not the negatives."
And yeah I pored a lot of gasoline on this fire. Which I shouldn't have done.
And the fire would have probably always been there.
But there is a difference between a campfire and an inferno. And there is that herd and swarming aspect to human nature that is always seeming to get us in trouble.
Which is not to let 145 off the hook. Just that some of this might have been avoided.
I always pictured 145 as a female. And very religious. And roughly middle aged. Maybe with kids, and possibly some grandkids. Which is probably the complete opposite of me.
Although I am 44. But me and 145 would probably never touch elbows beyond curezone.
And we all seem to have our own comfort zones.
And I don't picture 145 as someone who was climbing the college circuit. With degrees, and so forth. And fortunately my parents were wealthy enough for me to climb up as high as I wanted. And in moments of weakness, well I do tend to hold that against people here. And try to out "write" them. Which I shouldn't do.
So having said that. I will wrap this up.
Ultimately I don't think this forum is a good fit for 145. But that is not my choice to make. And I never took her seriously when she was supposedly reporting me to the Alphabet Soup of the Government. And I hope she didn't take all my posts seriously.
I do honestly believe that 99% of all curezoners are great people. And that is a hard concept to grasp when you are just typing to a screen. But ultimately there is another person on the other end. And sometimes we forget that. So I send my best out to 145. It was never personal, but ultimately I made it that. And for that I apologize.
Lennon and McCartney were the best of friends. And then weren't. And then were. etc.
Ya know Trap. I don't agree with barely anything 145 says. But ultimately, she is from the MH school. Which is pretty hardcore religion, pro-fasting, anti-iodine etc.
And she found her way here. Again, this is not a good fit for her. Just as MH would die a quick death on your forum. Agreed.
People are entitled to their opinions. I can only speak for myself here, but I certainly regret some of the posts I put up. Sort of 'piling on'. I rode her pretty hard. And we all have different beliefs. I think that at least 70% of what gets said on curezone is complete garbage. But I could be wrong. Ultimately it doesn't matter. I take what I need and leave the rest. And I do feel that I could have treated 145 with more respect.
For the very large part I try to stay away from the MH forum - but I don't get the sense that it was in favor of something as nutso as a strict fruitarian diet.
Don't beat yourself up for being yourself, my friend. Whatever you may have done to stir the flames, in the end I would have to say that poster 145/Thinker got no more than she was due given the garbage she posted here - especially the personal attacks on other member, this forum, other forums, and even the WM. Good riddance, I say!
Also, I realize now that I was banned elsewhere not only for my questioning of others health modalities, but by associating myself with the iodine/iodide crowd. By doing so, it inadvertently became an associative dissonance between disrespective authority figures, err. self-moguls that are hardcore skeptics of iodine/iodide proponents. Glad to see it was taken care of finally.
It's forums like this, although not perfect, that offer alternative points of view to the majority of mainstream healthcare that mostly treats symptoms of disease, or cuts and guts body parts. It has it's place, but it often overshadows alternatives that may work better to treat symptoms and the root cause(s) of problems. Monopolies hate competition. I'm saddened when, for example, a woman with ever-increasing health problems is stuck in a box of thinking and doesn't branch out to give other therapies a chance. Then, one day, she talks about uterine fibroids and what a doctor suggests - hysterectomy, the only sure way to cure uterine fibroids according to the monopoly of AMA. These types of women have never heard of iodine and will not give it much thought when brought up by others. Or, the whole change of diet idea is lost to those types of people to try getting rid of their ailments.
I certainly agree that there were ample signs of mental imbalance. If not, I would have been far more severe in my comments and replies. Regardless, there is no reason to have to put up with such inane, if not insane, rantings - especially not when they cast wrong aspersions on other members, forums, the WM and essentially the entire site. I was glad to see the poster in question make a post in my forum - just so I could have the pleasure of banning her for what she posted against you and others here in this forum.
Congratulations and thanks for getting rid of her mess here.
