I agree. He is asking for help, and needs to express what he's going through.
Bad lock. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

WTF is wrong with everyone here lately? Stop taking locked threads so damn personally. You guys sound like a bunch of teenage broads.

Concerns like this should be sent to a Moderator or Admin via Personal Message, not voiced in the forums for general consumption and comment. We all agreed to have anything we post edited, locked, or removed for any reason at any time, when we signed up for the forums. A lot of off-topic stuff is tolerated here

Sorry, but this sentiment of Raaaid's does NOT make him good moderator material. If anyone thinks it does, then you need to re-consider what you think a moderator's job is.

I suppose there are a few things a mod might object to. I believe discussing (and advocating) the effects of non-prescribed drugs is probably a big no-no on a Ubi-hosted forum, leaving any mod little room for manoeuvring. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif Wherever my sympathies may lay, I recognise why it's barred.

So I'd like to hope the lock wasn't specifically aimed at Aimail. He is after all a long-time community member, down on his luck and experiencing some very unpleasant symptoms. Whatever imbalance is present, neurological physiological or psychological, it's causing him great anxiety & distress.
The reaction has been friendly & supportive which is valuable and positive at such a time and from a lonely place.

My advice would be - don't panic about seeing a clinical psychologist or a psychiatrist. This doesn't = being a 'loon'
You may derive much help in dealing with the severity of your symptoms by taking that route. I wish you well in it, Aimail http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I think a lock on people discussing their health is a tricky thing to administer. I don't think it's inappropriate in a community forum if someone writes to say they're facing surgery or feeling down. They take the chance of some thoughtless replies - but still get plenty of reassurance too. Just before I went to have spinal implants I received warm wishes from a few people here and on other forums and they were gratefully received. It's good to know you have a few supporters when you face stuff like that.http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

No doubt Brando!

But take this from my perspective: this isn't the correct place to get a healthy support-base

I don't care what Chuck ( BBB462cid ) Older thinks, this is as good a place as any to share our thoughts. For one thing, writing the mods directly does not allow us to share between ourselves our personal thoughts on the matter. And doing it this way does not in itself, violate the forum rules he himself so anally adheres to.

It's on topic and affects us all, so we can share our opinions if we so choose!! Besides, he is not an mod himself so therefore has no authority in the matter. Case dismissed, court is adjourned.......

Maybe i am not a nice guy. Next time question me in private, mkey? We all need help here and there and i doubt public combat flight simulator board is the place to discuss such things. If you disagree, by all means, my PM is open. By the way, get use to idea of questioning locks in the PM. This is last time i am justifying my actions in public. Next time i`ll simply lock it. If you dont like my style, contact community manager and have me removed from mods duty. I am really surprized i still do this... but reasoning is getting really blurry lately... if you know what i mean.

Good day.

That's fine. By all means, have your opinion. Luftluvver too

My opinion is that going to a bunch of strangers who don't even share their actual names and who may, or may not, be playing word games with anyone and everyone in sight, is probably not the best place to begin healthy mental health regimens. I should think to have some semblance of a healthy mental outlook, if a person's is in question, would require sincere, reliable, and trustworthy touchstones. Such as family and friends, or healthcare professionals. Not anonymous strangers. No matter how many times the term "community" is used to describe the people here, it's just a word


But that's just my opinion

Honestly the support from here has been great!

Some of you guys have been truly truly helpfull as well. The thread probably should have been locked, I must get round to thanking a few people in particular however, for going out their way to help. These people, I have forgotten their forum names, but tommorow I will go back over the thread.

I love this place http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

When leaders do not feel the need to explain thier rationale for decisions, then it may truely be time to take a break/change.

Sometimes it's easier to open up if you're anonymous. Family and friends sometimes have a hard time dealing with your 'health problems'.

If you mean by that that the moderators are our leaders you need to do some re-thinking!
