I dont know if it is for you, but most people with anger found solace in applying CBT

On the other hand, having parent prone to anger, I decided early on to remain calm in any situation.

For some reason the only thing that can still trip me are internet forum. That is the reason, I dont comment much around here or anywhere

It seems it was not august 24, but October 24:

With a colder climate, you may have run away faster

Is there any way to test what the end result should be with more posts?

Should I build a bot to repost the front page of reddit/hacker here, so we have way more contents?

Because waiting for more people to come, will never work.. even if imho having more user should be the end goal

I found this podcast about empathy :


Very original on its take on the subject.. and it echoes your views: Empathy is bad.

Plus it sound like a crime podcast

Reddit also have an hide option I suppose (I dont have an account, I just lurk)

They also shadow banned the sub since i never saw any post for r/The_donald for years as a lurker.

I suppose the ban coming now, is just some political statement.

I read that piece yesterday about Internet forum nastiness: https://devonzuegel.com/post/the-silence-is-deafening

My first "solution" was to add a "glaring look" button next to the "like" button. I bet it wont solve anything, but I'd like to send "glaring looks" 👀

I like how anti-"fun" he is :

    California because they think of the weather and fail to take account of other things, such as the fact that California is full of tedious hippies.


    In other words, last night’s party was never as good as you think it was.

Seriously, it's a shame that mindfulness is more mainstream than CBT. I guess coming from antique Asia, is the recipe to success in the west. Cant wait when everyone start ingesting mercury like Qin Shi Huang

I despise everything that Trump represent.

But the more I see him, the more fun and self-deprecating he seems. Totally the opposite of what I expected from a self aggrandizing untitled son of a billionaire.

I get why he won. I can see why he could win again, and that video , and how relatable he appears in it, is more a Trump ads than a Biden one's

I was thinking the same. But hey! They got a 6 week later check-in with not self reported assessment, but with 3 other people's blind-assessment... Those might be in in the deception, though
