With this stuff posted,
now, flames can be specific,
and we can label

posters with numbers
that are quite specific, like,

right out of the book!"
Which threads use the most numbers?
(I pick Linux threads . . .)

Numbers 22, 34 and 38 best apply to some of my least-favorite posters.

Did you pick this up from our friends at DU? It's not a matter of picking which one they're suffering from, just which symptom is most prominent today.

Let's see - if anything in your life isn't hunky-dory, and you react naturally (with the usual negative behaviors) you now have a mental illness?

36. Physical Complaints and Pain

Pain is a mental illness? Only if it's psychosomatic.

I like how they try to tell people that are serious about their faith that they have a mental illness.

The issue isn't
having one or two symptoms . . .
some people are like

illustrations of
the entire list! And some threads,
just by their topic,

bring out the whole list
in Freepers . . . Remember threads
about Schiavo?

Yea right. Anyone focused on their faith is mentally ill. No activist psychiatrist here! I wonder what frenzy he goes into when he looks at a dollar bill.

>I'd bet the mental health "experts" would add 51. Homophobia

"We treat racism and homophobia as delusional [#11!] disorders," said Shama Chaiken, who later became a divisional chief psychologist for the California Department of Corrections, at a meeting of the American Psychiatric Association. "Treatment with antipsychotics does work to reduce these prejudices."
