I enjoy that this is a place that is willing to tolerate virtually anyone as long as they are tolerant of others in return.

Re: What's your honest opinion of the ADD Forums?

I found there to be a ton of information. Most of the searches I did on google ended up here. Well not right her but in these forums.

I do really like how old threads get revived. In many forums and boards if you ask a question, there are always a few who point out it was already covered in another thread, then once you finally find the thread and try to get a bit more info, one of the same group grips as the thread was from 1997.

I like the thanked thing where you can say thanks without making another post..

To the person who doesn't belong.. Do you realize an overwhelming majority of your 156 posts someone thanked you for your input? Someone did appreciate your being here in the past.

I am not always nice, I just try not to be more of a jerk online then I am in person.

Oh, I really like your smiley's but the dang group hug one was missing.. why have it on the list and not be there?. is that some cruel test to see if we notice? and now I am going to have to search to find one.
ok, they are way to cutsy, I can see why there isn't one there. sorry.

We have a group hug smiley , don't know why there isn't a one-on-one hug.

I love that you noticed that Wuv has had so many of her posts thanked.

I checked the show all smileys and it was not there.. the place is there, just no smileys in the additional smileys section.

I really like that feature. I know for some people there is nothing worse then no comments on their post,.. but if they said it all and pretty much covered everything, then there is not a reason for a comment. The Thanks thingy seems like a nice way to agree without actually replying.

One of my issues is I write like I talk... waaayyy toooo long. For me a simple, "I agree, thanks" becomes,.... well this post.

Re: What's your honest opinion of the ADD Forums?

I don't belong here. All I do is upset people and make more work for the Admins.
I don't deserve any thanks for anything except select things I will not mention.

So someone else had a bad day and blamed it on you ...
doesn't mean ALL you ever do is upset other posters.

I make more work for the admins as well ... I dread seeing a PM from one
particular admin because I know I've somehow broken some rule or other ...
again. *sigh*

I had a long discussion with that admin (bless her heart) about whether
I'd ever be able to manage my reactions to some things (and some posters)
or if I should just say 'sayonara' and shut down the internet.

I had to take a step back from the way that made me feel in the moment
and realize that I've had way more positive interactions than unhappy ones.

I think the same is likely true for you.

In my opinion, all the people who belong here are very sensitive.

Because we are very sensitive, we can be very reactive, and in turn sometimes react very insensitively.

I personally am very sensitive, and sometimes in turn I can react very insensitively.

I have been trying to be more aware of my own and other members hypersensitive temperaments and am trying to learn that I am not always going to agree with others, and not not take it so personally.

Many ADHD topics are very emotional, and very emotional topics are hard to verbally describe accurately, making things even more frustrating.

Yesterday I overreacted and I am sorry about that.

(Side note: I am not proud of it but I bet I have made a lot more work for the moderators and administrators than you)

You have been "thanked" 190 times, in a total of 157 posts made.

Your "thanked" average is 1.2 per post.


I have been "thanked" 540 times, in a total of 10327 posts made.

My "thanked" average is 0.05 per post.


The odds are it was me that was not being very supportive yesterday.

Re: What's your honest opinion of the ADD Forums?

mildadhd,

After the above post I went back and looked at what caused it and frankly I don't think you were, like, out of line at all unless you were PMing her swear words or something. TBH this looks 100% like not a problem you caused.

Re: What's your honest opinion of the ADD Forums?

Wuvs, I'm a bit at a loss what exactly makes you feel so bitter and hostile.

You are complaining about people being touchy feely complainers but you've made several posts in this thread (and the other one that seems to have started this) complaining about how you've been hurt and how horrible so many of us are.

Mildadhd has apologised like half a dozen times. You don't have to acknowledge his apology, you don't have to forgive him and you don't even have to graciously accept his apologies. But you do have to see the irony here of you complaining that people are treating you badly when you are making pretty nasty guilt tripping posts yourself

Re: What's your honest opinion of the ADD Forums?

MODERATOR NOTE: If you have a problem with another member (or group of members), please deal with it privately and civilly. This thread (like every other thread) is not the place to complain about other members.

Please keep in mind these etiquette guidelines:

[...]
Avoid direct insults to any member of the forums. Everyone should be treated with the same degree of respect. The goal should be to give constructive criticism with source documentation given where possible to back up your opinions while using common sense, respect, and courtesy. Treat others as you would like to be treated.
Also, for reference:

I wasn't in on this thread when whatever unhappy interchange took place, but I'm sad to think of you leaving, and if you are reading this, I hope you'll feel like you can give the forums a second chance at some point. I was glad to meet and befriend you and had been looking forward to getting to know you better. I liked your contributions on the Christian thread. It may be too early for you to consider returning but again I hope you will. In the meantime, take care and God bless. Bunny
