Here's a thought which our Mods and resident trick cyclists might consider. The childhood memories thread which was bowling along quite merrily, suddenly attracted a horrible tale of wife and child beating. I hope though, that it helped the poor bastard who had to suffer that, to get it off his chest a bit. I remember the 25th anniversary of the Falklands when I directed a mate to the Sun website because they'd produced a music video to raise funds for the South Atlantic vets. It never occurred to me that he didn't want to be reminded, but he rang me from overseas on the night of the anniversary and quite shockingly spilled the beans about one of the night battles he'd fought in. It wasn't at all pleasant, suddenly the sometimes quirky behaviour and failed relationships all made sense, but it was like lancing a boil for him and I'm very glad he made that 4 hour phone call and I was indoors to take it. He's doing fine now. We've got blokes like that who use this site. I've already identified 2 who I reckon are bottling some horrible sh*t inside their heads. All the official help is fine, but some blokes might find it helpful just to pour out their poison in a special forum on this site. It would probably be best however if instead of writing it under their usual avatar, they could write anonymously if they had that option. Obviously, it would attract the usual walting mongs with bullsh*t stories, but I believe you might easily spot who was for real and who wasn't. I don't know what I might say in response to some of the stuff that might appear, but there are a lot of sensible heads in this community and I think the knowledge that the poster was among those with that very peculiar forces slant on humour and sympathy might be an encouragement and a comfort. Most of us have lived pretty fortunate lives. It might be good if we could offer those old - and young - comrades who haven't been so lucky, another way of diluting their mental trauma. What do you folks think?
