I'm just going to put in my two cents here. I really enjoy a lot of the manhater posts I've seen, I think you are sharp and have a lot of great
observations. I haven't read much of these threads, though, not for any personal reason but just because, well, it seems...personal. That's just my
opinion, if you feel comfortable with it, that's your call as a writer and an ATS member.
I just think I should warn you, however, that there are dangers to sharing your life online with people too openly. It can feel really good to connect
with people and share something personal, especially on ATS where there really are so many truly fascinating, sharp, and sympathetic people
. After awhile you really get a sense of the goodness of so many people here, and it becomes tempting to reveal things, especially for somebody
like me who lives a very private and withdrawn life offline much of the time. But you have to remember what you say here can have all kinds of lasting
effects, with everything from business and family to real-world friends, and even in some cases bigger reprecussions. The other thing is, its getting
to be a real small world, in the sense that its not difficult for people to figure out who you are, the more you post. Some people might not have you
or your family's best interest at heart.
Take this not as me being critical but as a warning from someone who has experienced various types of unpleasantness becuse I couldn't control my
urge to share a little too much online before. I got it all sorted out but believe you me I learned my lesson. I hope you never have to. Good luck.
