Or, the responses are insulting and dismissive, even when the original 
post didn't imply Myth is a piece of crap.

And it is frustrating to see anyone who has a legitimate problem treated 
like children, over and over again.  I'm not saying you in specific do 
this or have done this, but I have been here long enough to have seen

I haven't smoked for 3 months, 2 weeks and 19 hours,
saving $480.75 and not smoking 3,205.04 cigarettes.
