Then again, I'm not surprised the creation of private forums has led to this sort of thing (read: ganging up on a type with such audacity because that type cannot fight back, ie. bullying).
I'm disappointed when these kinds of threads show up in both the NF and NT forums (or any forum for that matter). I got away from INTPc because of this kind of bullying. I would hope that this attitude does not continue to manifest itself throughout the community.
I'm just not sure whether I should consider this kind of goofing around harmless or not. It seems an awful lot like gossip.
To answer the question, they don't. That I might take something anyone says personally when the situation doesn't call for it is my problem. Which simply means I let people underneath my skin, but I don't think the majority of people intend to wind up there. I do feel bad for letting them in...it's not a very pleasant place to be, it makes the situation awkward, and causes unneccessary apologising and annoyance.

Ah, it is just venting and jokes. I actually feel quite good about both of these threads. It isn't personal (at least here, no one pointed out just one person to pick). I think this is a lot better than the Bluewing type of threads.
And, besides, if the people here would like to exclude others, they would go to INTPc, INFJc, INXXc or whatever...
