Why are things in this world so hard and stressful and expensive, and why am I so weak I let it all get me down and BAM Here I am back Addicted.
No offense to Rising Against, but he took it wrong and attacked you, then a bunch of people borrowed his interpretation instead of thinking for themselves.

I attacked his post, not him.
There's a great difference between the two.
And no, members of ATS can think for themselves thank you very much.
Going down the route of blaming me for everyone disagreeing with Satron is just a very poor attempt to excuse his behavior really. And sorry but no, people just aren't going to fall for that.
His, Satrons, first post was extremely insensitive and also completely unnecessary, not to forget unwanted as pointed out by the OP, and he basically told her that nobody here cares about her problems and she should shut up about them, obviously not using those exact words though,
Satron was out of line with what he said. It's sadly the downside of the internet
- feeling safe to say whatever comes to mind, no matter how rude, knowing their's no real repercussions.
If Satron actually showed some compassion instead of asking like a jerk, which is what he was acting like originally as pointed out by multiple people, not just me, I wouldn't have had to reply to him in such a way.
Maybe you need to consider a little bit more about what I said.
16) Behavior: You will not behave in an abusive, libelous, defamatory, hateful, intolerant, bigoted and/or racist manner, and will not harass, threaten, nor attack anyone.
16e.) Illicit Activity: Discussion of illicit activities, specifically the use of mind-altering drugs & substances, engaging in computer hacking, promoting criminal hate, discussing sexual relations with minors, and furtherance of financial schemes and scams are strictly forbidden. You will also not link to sites or online content that contains discussion or advocacy of such material. Any Post mentioning or advocating personal use of illicit mind-altering drugs will result in immediate account termination. i) Narcotics and illicit mind-altering substances: Due to abuse of the subject matter by some (promoting various aspects of personal use, and discussing actual personal use), no new topics on this subject are allowed in any form.

You mistook his FRIENDLY warning as "insensitive" when he wasn't even really commenting on the OP's post from a personal level, he was telling her what to expect from ATS moderators.

He wasn't literally speaking when he said nobody cares. Have you thought perhaps he had posted a similar thread in the past and it was closed? Maybe Satron legitimately believes no one on ATS cares because of his personal experience on ATS in the past. You're scorning someone for a perceived lack of sensitivity when you guys all (the herd) are slamming him in the most insensitive way imaginable because you weren't perceptive/sensitive enough to see the truth of what he was saying.
