There is a great deal of truth in your post... I have one item of contest however. I do not take personal attacks as an assault on me per se, more an attack on my actions.
That said, we must all be accountable for our actions as we will either pay the price and pay dearly or reap the richest of rewards.
In addition, the word "friend" is often grossly misused. I consider a friend one who can accept you warts and all in the best of times and the worst of times, through your mistakes and successes, wanting nothing, but giving everything. As you know, many people in every social circle, from every walk of life scatter when something bad happens to, or with you, or when their "need" for you or what you are capable of providing them is over. These are not friends, they are good time "social club" buddies and takers as you like to say.
Whether in disagreement or not, I consider the contributing folks here on curezone all my friends, and "lab" partners. Whether I agree with them or not, whether I choose a protocol they disagree with or not, matters not to me. I have walked my path on this earth long enough to feel very comfortable in my own skin and can do it alone if need be... it has been a matter of survival and I learn fast and well. Again, a perspective I have from my life experiences that others may not understand.
