I've had it with this message board. I'm removing www.acne.org from my browser's list of links. Too many are entertained by BenKweller's childish antics, and mature, educated people are treated with ridicule and disdain. Furthermore, the moderators fail to enforce the rules. I have better things to do with my time, so I'm leaving this board to the adolescents.

You think of yourself as mature, educated person correct? Yet your letting a deviot beat you down with words. Is bens comments so hurtful you can't stand to face a little critcism, this happened a while back between us 2 you went into a similar tantrum. Now i mean no disrespect as ive grown to respect your posts regardless of weather i agree but really coming from my side you need to be able to handle criticism a little better because boy if you let an internet kid who has no intention but to start debate get to you, then how you going to be in reality.

The forum doesn't revolve around disrepectful people unless you choose it to be so.

You’re overreacting Steve. One of the reason you got so many replies - some good others not so good - was that rather a lot of people were reading your posts. These web message boards are what they are, and at times they are a bit of a free for all. I’ve been on others and it took me a while to get used to them. I left one once in a huff myself. Two things help me keep an even keel when I use them. 1. I always look around for someone who has a serious question or problem that I think I can answer, and I try to answer it. 2. I remember that I am not obligated to respond to anyone.
You do a disservice to the people who responded favorably to you, when you tell them all to go whistle. So come back one and a while, read a post or two, and when one inspires you to unearth some long lost acne knowledge, please share it with us.

just give it up... your little one-sentence remarks get more stupid everytime. It'd be much better if you didn't act like a jerk all the time, either... then we might actually like you.

It's not my goal to be liked -- I just enjoy when I'm right.

So sad that you have to get enjoyment out of that... I'm guessing it's your only means of enjoyment anyway, so please continue. rolleyes.gif

lookie here, there is a button where you can block certain users, I am not sure where it is though.

But from the sounds of it, many people benefited from your posts, it would be silly to leave if you don't want to

I come here in the hopes of finding useful advice on treating acne, and to share any useful advice I might have. I'm not interested in making internet buddies. I've read enough of Ben's posts to know that as soon as he enters a thread, it's no longer worth reading, as they just become insanely petty arguments that I'm not interested in. Of course, there are a lot of posts here not worth reading. I quit reading them as soon as I discern they are of no help to my acne situation.
Think about why you come here. Is it to help you figure out a way to deal with your acne, or is it to exchange childish antics with some dude who has way too much time on his hands and thinks he is doing us all a favor by telling us over and over again his tired, pathetic arguments which are sometimes right, usually wrong, and always extremely closed-minded and rude.
My regimen:

Eat regularly: a wide variety of vegetables, eggs, meat/fish, cheese, yogurt, butter, fruit, nuts/seeds.

Occasionally eat: beans, squash, potatoes.

Don't eat: sugar, grains, most processed food.
