Well, I was in an angry mood last night, and was venting in #nerve when cara came in. Yes, I was doing some female-bashing, but no more than women have male-bashed in my presence. Anyway, I was accused of over-reacting, or possibly being too needy, available, boring, and earnest. I came back with a somewhat personal statement to cara. She got a little upset. I felt I was being picked on, but nobody saw that even when I said so. So, I left. I quit irssi. Maybe forever. After all, they all said they didn't know me in "real life", so what was I getting out of the experience of being in there? Not much, I've decided.
Maybe I'll go back, maybe I won't. I don't like having to justify my emotions to people who admit to not knowing me. Especially when the venting I am doing seems to be par for the course for various individuals with emotional issues in #nerve and on the boards.
