capntom asked this question on 4/5/2000: Sir I need to know why You decided to insult me on this panel for asking question?

If I had insulted you, you would have known it throughly. I am a PTSD service connected Nam vet. I used as much tact as I could to control my anger and frustration with the likes of you and your kind.
As you will see in the followup answer which I let my wife write, I was being nice.
It is an insult to my dignity to share the title of expert with someone like you and others. Myself and others are on this site to try to help others to the best of our ability. However, when I read some of the degrading things that you write in the form of counseling to those in need of help, I feel that what others have told me is true. That is that this site is rigged and everyone here is out for their own personal glory, not to help any one else except their friends.
I have spent my 51 years trying to help others in whatever way I could. I am now totally disabled because of the stress it put on my life.
I was asked to come to this site by someone I highly respect, because of my abilities to deal with most aspects of counseling. If you have taken the time to read some of my answers, maybe you can understand my abilities and learn about counseling. I am not saying that I am something special, just that I know what I am doing. I have been highly trained to do it.
You have your expertise in mechanical things. My espertise is in human relations and health care. I feel that you and others should stay in your fields and I will stay out of yours.

I answered your question to the best of my ability. This is no place to have a disagreement. This is just a suggestion, pull your questions let this go, and move on to do what it is we do, help people with advice. Sometimes we have to humble ourselves to be able to rise above any given situation. This is your choice, but I wouldn't want to do battle in open public just because my dignity means a lot to me. Thanks, John I think you are a good guy, stay close to you.
