You Quote: "But I digress, this forum is a joke."
You sound unreasonably frustrated. At what, this forum? Please. I think there's a deeper issue here. It seem you're projecting you own anxieties and self haltered onto others. And this is a "safe" place for you to do that without having to face others in reality. When you mentioned this forum to be a "joke" please remember, you are a part of this forum! After all, you have essentially contributed to this forum with your time, energy, thoughts and ideas. It's time to find inner peace.
