I know a number of us may suffer, or have suffered mental health issues. Some of the comments made from what is supposed to be a 'community' are really pretty nasty, and unnecessary. Sometimes people get very wound up, or upset. It is for this reason that I rarely dip into Cyclechat nowadays. Now this thread in itself will probably elicit 'snowflake' comments. But my response in advance is this. If it makes you feel good about yourself, being terribly brave from behind your keyboard, then good for you. But in person, I know 100% that you would not dare insult me. So instead, how about trying to be positive and constructive, thinking about what your comment may say about you? Yes, you can try to be macho or clever. Let's say you hit the mark with a nasty comment, and make somebody who is already depressed feel much worse. Feel good about that? Cycling is a wonderful sport, and a great hobby, but sometimes, I almost wonder if it attracts more that it's share of, well let's just say negative people. Hopefully not, maybe it's just that the positive decent ones are too busy out on their bikes ( as I usually am), leaving the grumpy bitter ones to their keyboard warrior ways!! Much kudos though to those who make constructive contributions to the CC community, and thank heaven for the ignore function!
