    Without seeing the original post, but drawing on bits gleaned from other discussions, living with you would be [have been] a disaster. My own experience with a somewhat less dyfuntional mother is that more »

    I can't say that I find the LW community either effective or efficient at self-policing. If it were there wouldn't be great hulking chasms of poofage and nukage. Some yes. It muddles along though. If more »
