It is a pleasure to read the posts from Rosenberg since they are all written with a command of the English language. May I suggest some of the problems he is experiencing with one particular forum contributor is due to the latter's probable ability to read written English but inability to comprehend the written English language. This clear lack of comprehension leads to inaccurate assumptions.

What? You think it's a pleasure to read OP's appallingly rude comments about posters who were initially trying to help?

I clearly stated the reason why it was a pleasure for me to read Rosenberg's posts; this was due to his correct use of the English language, nothing else. (I have only ever noticed one slight punctuation error.) Naturally my observation that a particular contributor did not always comprehend the written word and that this led to assumptions that were erroneous was not directed at you. It is good that Posters are trying to help but we should try not to become judgemental with our helpfulness.

Given how appallingly rude OP quickly became in this thread your choosing to comment on his use of English and your statement that you thought his posts a pleasure to read is beyond comprehension.

Presumably if Mein Kampf was well written you'd have found that a pleasure to read too.

I'm not so sure about that. For example, his sentence " Do you feel like you are being manipulated at all; like your thoughts aren't entirely your own?" has an un-English ring to it. Perhaps he is American, or watches a lot of American films - in this country I think we would say "as if" rather than "like".

You do presume too much and your presumption is incorrect. If it helps your comprehension, I would prefer not to have Rosenberg as my neighbour but I do admire well written English.

That is a fair comment.

Nope - you've lost me!! The purpose of your post has less to do with with praising Rosenberg and more to do with criticising me.

I rarely make an assumption on this forum but when I do, for the avoidance of doubt, it is usually accompanied by the words: 'I assume' - capiche?

The claim that I fail to comprehend or understand something seems to be limited to you and Rosenberg - strange that!!

Yet again you make an assumption (in your second sentence). One might be tempted to quote the old chesnut, "If the cap fits, then wear it.".

Let me try and help you, the red is in praise (if you wish) of Rosenberg's written English; again nothing else. The blue is only a suggestion that you have chosen to interpret as being critical of your good self. You are beginning to show an element in your responses of a persecutory delusion.
