I tend to agree. And I'm not sure why you can't be allowed a useful outlet here with experienced people to help you work through some issues and help you see what you need to discuss with the others.
Why do they need to even read what you post? If it's going to bother them to read it, then instead of you not posting, maybe they should not read?
