I will say I am generally not fickle, definitely not amoral or without conscience, or complicit in anything to do with psychiatry or its patients. Haven't been to a pdoc in over 11 years, nor have I studied the current state of the field at all so I could form an overall opinion of its helpfulness. It is Mr. Pilder's tone and tactics I criticize. His message, if it is anti-drug, is welcome in the interest of free speech, to the extent Dr. Bob allows that. (Which is apparently 100% at the moment.)

10derheart, I think you have misinterpreted me. The quote you cite was not a serious characterisation of anyone, but an attempt to express how it seems that many of us are assumed to be from the perspective of the gentleman in question. It was intended to satirise this perspective when it expresses itself hyperbolically and at the expense of reasoned dailogue which accepts that posters who refuse to agree with the hyperbole are therefore complicit in "supporting" choices to continue with medication which is asserted to be lethal.

Apologies if that satirical purpose wasn't entirely clear. In the past I have entirely agreed with your totally reasonable views on the gentleman's "tone and tactics", and still do.

Needless to say, nothing in the words you extract was meant to articulate my view of you or anyone else at PB.
