Well, so much for being curious about others' ideas and theories on poly! Good luck!

I suspect it was more of a 'please tell me I'm right' attempt, and when instant approval was not forthcoming offence was taken.

I believe the self-observation concerning lack of maturity may be a salient one here

Er, I'm pretty sure I never asked for anyone's opinion about poly? I'm not even a little bit interested in anyone's ideas and theories about it! I just introduced myself as someone curious to meet poly people in my area because I want some experiences.

"Please tell me im right" about what? I didn't seek to define anything or make any points apart from in defence of the appropriateness of me choosing to look here. i think you need to re read the thread or just have a little think about it because that last post makes you look stupid northome and your language doesn't conceal the idiocy of the content.

In the words of Mark Twain "Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience."

And don't worry, I can't see how to close my account, but I've unsubscribed from emails and I won't be back...

This is a discussion forum - so we like to discuss things, particularly ideas and theories. Hence the misunderstanding.

Unicorn hunters of the week!

Wow, this thread is an interesting cautionary tale.
