Anon, I have taken that post off-line. I think that you are right: too much introspection and it delivers the wrong messages. It will obviously continue to exist in various feeds and caches, but at least it will be off-line here.
I still think that the broader issues are worth addressing, but this can be done in other ways independent of my own experiences.
Once again, my thanks. It's nice to know that there are readers out there.
