I still don't understand your position. There are plenty of posters (adults) who share similar or even much more open details of their personal lives here (I mean, one could almost write an R-rated biography of JLib with his posts on SF) - there are tons of thread about relationships and personal lives. They don't get called stupid and morons. So why her? Could it be that it's all good when guys do it but a female shouldn't be doing that?
The principal difference was that she was a stranger showing up and tossing red meat to wolves by way of introduction. That she was a woman was part of it, as her martial relationship was part of her shtick. But more importantly, she seemed to crave the attention in a way that was childish. Had this been her fifth week of posting on the forum, my reaction would have been different, but so, I guess, would have been her reception.
And many of the people that show up here asking for relationship advice do get called morons. And the ones that do so while revealing personal information to people they don't know deserve it. And as I said, most of the posters who do that are
kids. Or barely into adulthood. If you think she behaved intelligently, so be it. We disagree.
And to repeat, that does not mean I think the behavior towards her was justified.
