    The now defunct infp.globalchatter had a vent section.

    Even though it did go a long way towards establishing the "whiny emo" stereotype with which INFP's are mercilessly teased, there was a lot of good to be found if you dug through it.

    If you could have gotten past whatever reservations you might have had and actually read some off the threads in there, you would have found that some of the posts in that vent section contained the most honest and insightful looks in to the human mind anywhere online.

    Nothing brings out honesty like anger/frustration, and the intimacy of the thoughts that people shared and the wisdom of some of the responses were astounding.

    Oh yes, go and vent there, repeatedly and ferociously, get banned and then you'll seriously have something to vent about.

    I agree with people here. Blogs are just perfect for venting.

    I think the venting of anger for the purpose of catharsis is misguided. Anger begets anger.

    But that doesn't mean it wouldn't be interesting to me.

    I think the "anger" that the OP was talking about is the one that connotes frustration/righteous fury as opposed to the anger that denotes hatred/violence... but of course, there might be a tiny bit of of that type too.

    There's obviously some disagreement on what venting accomplishes.

    I can see a case being made for either side -- that venting might clear the air, but that it also can throw gas on a small fire.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I had assumed as much.

    This is true....the vent section never seemed to be a problem there....but we're dealing with swarms of NTs here

    I could see such a new section being both easy to mod and useful if you create an auto-running script:

    Code:
    If (Thread_Creator_Type = "*NF*") then
       Create_Post("Damn, it's not that big of a deal. Calm down.")
    else If (Thread_Creator.type = "*NT*") then
       Update_Thread_Creator_Type_To("NF")
    End If

    I just thought this forum has too many people on it, and it would have been a convenient way to weed out some of them

    BTW: Some people use Vent for venting (I don't believe it's a coincidence why they chose that client ). But that can be annoying.
