I'm having a problem with the rampant ugliness...

When I joined this site, people would heatedly disagree but still show some level of caring and respect for those with whom they disagreed. Lately, I've been appalled by the attitudes and posts of several members.

I noticed it seems if you stop taking the drug, you quickly relapse. That ...
