    Martha, I was not having "fun" with that individual. I realize that he/she is
    suffering greatly.

    If you read my reply carefull you will notice that I was under the impression that
    he/she was yelling at both Mary AND I-- and I could not understand why that
    individual would be upset with me, after I wrote so many posts in support of such

    Yet, even while under that impression I did not write a sarcastic reply to that

    I was wheer that person was once. I know what it is like, all to well. But, the best
    thing to do is to try to be calm and rational. It's easier to be heard that way.
