I don't want to embarrass the perpetrators of the posts by name, there have been more than one, but at times their appear troll like posts on these forums.
Perhaps it is inadvertant, but asking for advice and then showing little respect for the replies that are made in good faith, name calling using unacceptable language, putting across a belief that one has and then insisting this belief is irrefutable despite what others have said and with no evidence, or criticising others for valid views seems to me the sort of thing a troll would do.
I don't know whether it is a 'road from Damascus' moment (the 'from' is deliberate as it seems to be that the eyes have been closed and not opened) but there has also been what appears to be a personality change at times. We are autistic, but this does not mean we cannot work things out and with proper respect views can be contrary to those of others. And sometimes there are members here with particular knowledge which is useful to others. But posting information to further a theory of doubtful basis is not what I believe this forum is for, and one should expect others to put the alternative view.
I know I wind people up at times, hopefully not too many times on this forum. But I do try to think about what I am saying, give information in good faith, accept other peoples contributions with good humour, and not spout rubbish.
But there does seem at times to be people here with nothing to add to a conversation but spout nonsense.
I... I thought we had all agreed that global warming is caused by the gays?.
< Joking: I can say that as I'm one of the gays! >
Oh the boots are off darling. I couldn't even bare to have the poor things near me, I felt so wretched
Darling... you must embrace the technique of putting party hats on monsters x
”A projective drawing technique, Dr. Crenshaw developed to address multiple fears, phobias, frightening dreams, nightmares, and PTSD symptoms in children is Party Hats on Monsters (Crenshaw, 2001). This technique was included in a review and recommended in �Fifteen Effective Play Therapy Techniques� (Hall, Kaduson, & Schaefer, 2002). This drawing strategy draws on both learning theory principles of titrated exposure to the feared stimulus and gradual desensitization as well as embedded suggestion based on the work of Milton Erickson that was later applied to children by Joyce Mills and Richard Crowley (1986). By the very act of trying to reproduce on paper the frightening image and discovering that no matter how hard they try they are unable to make it as scary as the image in their mind, they discover the power of defusing the fear by putting it out on paper and getting it out of their head. The embedded suggestions reinforce this notion by stating, for example, �It is very interesting what children discover when they put the scary monster out here on paper. They find it very hard to make it as scary as the picture in their head and they realize this monster is not as scary as they thought when they look at it in the light of the day.
Also when you change the monster, shrink him, or put a party hat on him, he is no longer scary at all. The most amazing thing that children discover is that when they change the image out here on paper they can also change the scary image in their head”
That’s an excellent technique. I’m totally all for getting our thoughts and images down on paper. This is a really great technique for kids though. I hope I remember it. I might cut n paste it and keep coming back to it.
And don’t worry, I think, I might, well, I may, go to church today, or if coyrse I may not, but if I do, my baby boots will go with me ;)
