Greatest. Thread. Evah!
Over at Above Top Secret, a commenter proposes banning all posters who have some form of mental illness. And suddenly we learn that there are more nuts over there than in a Sam's Club jar of Skippy. It starts with this comment:
People with mental illnesses have a lot more to contribute to society than so called 'normal' people.
More? Come on! I can see arguing that they have something to contribute, sure. As is pointed out in that post, some famous and talented people in history have had mental problems. But they are the exception, not the rule. And it continues:
I have many times OPENLY disclosed my legal mental state AKA Legally Insane on ATS and BTS and Mutter [when it existed] and Chat... people often are shocked by my extreme ideas and are not past posting "Are You Crazy???"
Here's an interesting thought for you...I have openly stated that I hear voices 24/7 somewhere in the thread that is first linked in my signature...in fact, I think I have been targeted for over a decade now.
Should I be banned?
And that one is posted by a moderater over there!
