I have been a member here since 2007, and can safely say that although I have communicated with some people who were showing signs of severe
depression, mania, psychosis (various) and other mental trauma related symptoms, I have never come across a member who appeared, from the way they
posted, to be anything other than a human being.
There have been members (who do not remain so for very long) who trotted out the very same responses to criticism, and suggestions, every time they
encountered an intellect beyond their own. There may have been people here before who had been, or thought that they had been, part of thought control
experimentation, by either government bodies, or cults. The thing with responding negatively toward persons who have altered thought processes, no
matter how they are come by, is that if challenged, some may revert to a more dangerous mode of thought.
I believe it is the responsibility of every one of us members, to be vigilant toward the mental health of the rest of our number. We are each of us
golden, unique little nuggets of thought in a sea of madness, and we should treasure one another as such. If you see a members activity as being cause
for concern, then take a minute to consider the possibility that the person you think might be a robot, may actually be having a psychotic episode of
some sort, and may become a danger to themselves or others if not handled carefully. If that ceases to become an option in conversation with such a
person, it may be better to studiously avoid interacting with the subject matter of their particular interest, since saying the wrong thing at the
wrong moment, could lead to any one of a hundred unfortunate outcomes.
Care about the well being of your fellow members, look out for the warning signs. If they are caught early, traumatic experiences, and horrifying
lapses in thought processes, and their all to often horrendous consequences, may be averted.
