Roy: Can't tell if this is a joke or not


Front 320W


Nevada therapist's site (SnapOutOfIt.com!).

But here's what I can't figure out. She posted this 10 days ago, and already has 66 comments. But read the comments.

I can so not relate.

Don't as me about the California School of Professional Psychology. You'll regret it

Roy,

Most of the comments look like "comment spam" to me, but I could be wrong! I only scrolled through the first several before stopping. The comments are made to look like real people are encouraging her site, but all of them are very general and then all have a link with "come check out my blog!" in a way that is obviously advertising. A ceiling fan blog? And some of the other things mentioned? There's no way real humans wrote that stuff! At least that's what it looks like to me!

As for the site itself? No comment.... *eyes rolling*

Take care!
Carrie :)

foo: CSPP? I know. We fought them here, trying to get license to teach one of those learn-how-to-write-prescriptions-in-4-weekends deals.

re: the comment spam... that's what I don't get. SE points out that *some* of the spam has been removed!? She left the ceiling fan spam? I wonder what for. Also... I'm not sure how the comment spam stuff works, but it took 1 month for them to find Shrink Rap, so we've added the Word Verification like most others have. They all look the same:

"Hey, great site!! Come check out mine."

Liz here from I Speak of Dreams.She seems to be guilty of poor spam hygiene -- I got down to about twenty before spamglaze set in. Here's her Bio. Her husband is a developer of "cell level meditation". Woo.

Years ago, Dennis Leary had a comedy routine during which he billed himself as "Dr. Shut The F*ck Up". I confess, I see a similarity. Then again, perhaps I'm just a bleeding heart.

I'm inclined to think that regular applications of empathy and compassion are often in order, yet truthfully, sometimes one does benefit from a swift kick. For those who feel that's what they need, "Dr. Snap Out of It" might be quite effective.

Hrm. Looks like my iatrist has gone and gotten himself a sex change.

Although Dr. Shut the F up would apply to him as well, but Dr. Kick in the A would fit even better.

He makes Dr. Phil (who I used to think, on the few occasions I watched him, was direct) look like a kitten.

Verbal assault, comes to mind. Then again, I can be adult enough to admit that I see alot of value in much of the difficult stuff he does to me, and have learned alot from it. But the other 1/4 to 1/3rd of it, say, like being mocked, is going too far (he was having a bad week, that week). He's sposed to be the best. And I'll be calling him on some stuff from this last appt (see, I've learned to stand up for myself by seeing him, a little, cause if I don't, who will? Rather scary, tho . . .)

Urk. I didn't mean to go on about him, but when you guys brought up those names that would so aptly fit him, well . . . and YAY for empathy and compassion (cause we (patients) need it.
