DS - while there may be some who are trying to insult you on a personal level, most of those replying in this thread are more trying to figure out where you're coming from. In any forum such as this, where words, and how they are presented are the only real clues, it can be a rather hit and miss proposition. Also, this thread wasn't directed at you alone, but more of a general question of all posters who seem to fit the catagory of "just tell me what I want to hear", which your responses seem to place you in.
Your place in this heirarchy is that of being the poster that brought the question to the surface, which is why it seems to concentrate on you and your situation.

Also, many of the responses here don't really have anything at all to do with the question, but are just joshing around. No one on this board is perfect, nor does anyone I know of here pretend that they are. What you do have here though is a lot of people with a lot of experience, all the way to those who have none, and are seeking to learn. If you would cruise through the archives, you'll find serious response given by most everyone at some point or another. At the beginning of your thread, Valiente gave some very thoughtful advice, which it seemed you discounted, because it didn't jibe with what you were looking to hear. From that point, it in general, detoriated, as these things often do.

That in a nutshell is what this thread is about. You can take it in whatever spirit you choose, just as your thread was taken in various different ways by various different people.

Dogsailor- Thanks for sticking around, and welcome. I'd say the fact that you were willing to jump back in speaks well.

Please do us all a favor and don't refer to anyones kids, F'd up or other wise.

Now dog . . . that's a low blow and not tolerated by most here. Children who may be "retarded" are born with lower IQs, not as a result of a parent's abilities to parent.

Do you mean the ones that can't spell "their" or the ones that can't spell "inadequacies"? Wouldn't want to miss the point now, would we?
