You posted under a quote from another board member who had asked about those who are only present for certain situations, which implies to me that you were directing your commentary toward their situation.
What people generally endure has no bearing on the expectations of conduct on this board, and you are making assumptions when you suggest that I expect a higher level of respect for multiples than singlets. If I'm overreacting, I'm overreacting because my system, and probably others here as well, have sit through enough "jokes" about individuals not being inherently worth something and have suffered serious consequences from repeatedly hearing that message. Being told it's okay because immature high school students do worse is not acceptable to me and it's not going to comfort the less healthy members of the system if a comment like that is the one to put one of them back into zir old, unhealthy mindset, misinterpretation or not.
