I doubt most of them are actually trying to upset people... chances are they're just trying to understand dyspraxia/aren't thinking. Are people seriously trying to be malicious/change people's behaviour? I guess it's possible but I dunno... everyone seems to be putting a kinda negative outlook on things here (it's not exactly 'us' and 'them')... or is it just me? =/
Even so, gotta admit I like the 'you are the abnormal ones around here' line too and no offense meant to anyone ^^

In the Shadows, this post was written a long time ago in response to something that happened to a poster here. Some people in her life were angry with her for not being grateful enough to them for helping her, and they showed her posts to her family, who punished her for what she wrote. She hadn't said anything bad, and as she is one of the most severely disabled people here (she was misdiagnosed as 'mentally retarded' as a little girl, and she can't speak very well) I was particularly angry at how she'd been treated. She of all people needs a safe space to talk about how she feels, because she is not often listened to at home.

There were a couple of other cases as well, but this was the worst one. Obviously I couldn't share details in the post, but it was directed at people who did know what they were doing and were using info they found here to upset and in some cases blackmail DT users.

The fact that some people will treat others like this is so sad and backward. the fact that her friends and family show no understanding it's a crying shame.
