I too was away from PM for several months (for external reasons; nothing to do with PM itself). I return a few days ago, and one of the first posts I see is the one at the start of this thread, which is a rehash of a complaint that was being rehashed and reposted to the point of absurdity last year.
I'm astonished that A) the same person is still posting the same "Make people be nice to me!" whine, thinly disguised as a request for useful discussion, and B) the post has gotten any upvotes, let alone enough to have a positive score. How depressing.
I'm honestly sorry to be so harsh in one of my first posts since returning, but this is ridiculous.
