As an advocate and student studying health + human services this scenario is sad and I'm glad child welfare is involved.  WDYT?  Is there a break down of the system, according to her, here or is this just somebody placing the blame on others?

"Who knows how to avoid TOS here. It's very arbitrary. I certainly still see people behaving toward me in a way that violates TOS. And they are still "here" and their nasty posts are still there." My guess is that traffic is down so much on these boards that the powers that be are willing to overlook a lot that once would have led to banning or at least a warning in order to boost usage stats for potential paid advertisers. Certainly there was a time when one couldn't refer to another poster as a crazed psychotic without drawing a reprimand.

Who knows how to avoid TOS here.  It's very arbitrary.  I certainly still see people behaving toward me in a way that violates TOS. And they are still "here" and their nasty posts are still there.

I'm giggling that every sentence you write ends with a question mark.  That kind of game bores me.  Maybe you can get someone else to play.

Jams, also diabetes is not a terminal illness. It is a chronic illness. http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080802070702AA8Yoi9

"That's why I stopped, It became like talking to a brick wall.. Nothing was getting through.." ----------- Since you steadfastly refused to answer reasonable questions, there was no conversation to continue. Just repeating that something is "different" does not explain how it is different. Again, mental illness is like cancer and diabetes in that it is a chronic, treatable illness. You agreed to that. But you also seem to think that it is somehow ridiculous to compare it to cancer or diabetes, but nowhere in the last 200-300 posts have you explained why you think that or how it is you feel that mental illness can't be looked at the same way as those other illnesses. You also keep insisting that mental illness is "controversial," but again you have yet to explain in what way it is controversial. So, you are not the one talking to a wall here.

I remember old debates like this. Gasp, I once had company when it came to feelings about inlaws.

But I jsut want to interject an anecdote.  The husband of a friend of mine died quite unexpectedly recently at the age of 47.  He was a lifetime, involved member of Kappa Kappa Psi and was involved with the national organization at the time of his death. He was also an honorary member of Tau Beta Sigma and was involved with that sorority at the time of his death as well.   About 1/3 of the packed house at his funeral service were college students.   &amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;KKP and TBS certainly didn't feel he was "intruding" on their lives and events. &amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;Rest in peace, Dale.&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Yes, the National offices are very different.  Often they offer paying jobs.  What Wannabe has forced herself into is not National.  It's very different.  Heck, I've never even heard of what she's doing. &lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Cute that your friend was an honorary member of a sorority.  But really, he was &lt;span style="text-decoration:underline"&gt;not&lt;/span&gt; involved with the sorority unless it was a co-ed fraternity.  Sororities ~ "back in the day" and now ~ are run and organized by women only.  According to my neices, anything else is anathema, lol!  &lt;/p&gt;</blockquote></p><p>Sorry, but I know more about my friend's life than you do. He WAS involved in the sorority. On both a national and chapter level.  And his involvement in the fraternity was not only at the national level but at the chapter level too.</p>

Which is quite common. Typically those of us who mentor other young women bring them into the national volunteer structure as we see opportunities for them open up...

Sorority innocents? BWAH. Yeah, keep talking Thardy, because you're totally proving how little you know the more you open your mouth...
