Manage foes

Post by jimmylegs » Thu Oct 06, 2011 5:03 pm

hey noticed a new feature. sorry if i'm the last to spot it :S hehehe

anyway, if you click on the user control panel top right, and look at your profile options partway down the menu on the left, you will see an item 'friends and foes'. click on that and it defaults to 'manage friends' then you click the menu again on 'manage foes' and enter all the names of people you consider antagonistic.

should make following the 5 simple steps waaaaay easier.

lucky you guys :P hehe
take control of your own health
pursue optimal self care at least as actively as a diagnosis
ask for referrals to preventive health care specialists eg dietitians
don't let suboptimal self care muddy any underlying diagnostic picture!

If I am ever trolling please tell me, I sometimes do it out of habit as the rest of the forums I visit are.... more recreational in nature.

Use it if you find you cannot resist posting against a troll. Any insults you attempt, will only validate their existence, in their mind. You will annoy them the most by ignoring them. Any post they start which has no replies, will quickly fade down the list of recent posts, and will let them know what they are saying or their methods are not valued.
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

Hi, am i at risk of being liebelled (oops.. labelled) a troll if i respond candidly on a thread about trolls?

Firstly, is someone who is labelled FMS, or Lyme or Geriatric (rather than MS) considered a "troll" off the bat, on MS forums?
(never mind that many symptoms & structural-causes may be shared across-groups?

See, it's like this. I suspect that alot of people who are LIEbeled by jargon-filled conventional systems, are themselves quick to call communication styles which they're not accustomed to "Trolls With Agenda's" because they themselves are programmed to be so utterly conventional. I mean, would they ever even allow themselves to deeply research Quantum-Physics-based truthful diagnostics such as lifesystemusa, the Russian's ROFES, and other systems based on Quantum Physics? (a.k.a. The Field, The Force, you name it.

So, when I finally caught on to the fact that the majority of my fellow sufferers have unfortunately allowed themselves to become Religious Believers of the Sacred AMA-FDA, i've become nauseously turned off by that programmed mindset ~X( :sick: who prefer remaining in their respective, neatly-liebelled boxes they were dumped into.

BTW, are the terms Agenda & Troll in TheField's lexicon, i wonder?
Reachable via PM. Seems I have Higbee's HSII on ThisIsMS. Frustrated by MSers, FMers, Lymers & Prematurely-Aged-By-EMFers who prefer cryptic jargonian Systems Vs. Intuitive empirical experience. Don't simple truths count for anything anymore?
