No one is shouting. People have made highly valid points that have been ignored. How can we work with someone who has shown an unwillingness to enter into a reasonable and intelligent dialogue over an issue?
There has to be a basis,even a minute one,on which to proceed. Being given an authoritarian fait accompli goes nowhere near to achieving a rational and intelligent dialogue where service users voices are given consideration.
In a situation where administrators are acting irresponsibly, and against the good and wishes of those they proclaim to be there to support, then it is only right that people speak out.
Or do you really believe that one should stay silent when wrong is being done? Surely that is a catalyst for more wrong?[/quote]
precisely. you can't negotiate if no-one is prepared to listen: we've asked the mods to listen, to reconsider, to take our feelings and needs into consideration, but Sane appears not to care about applying its own Aims and Outcomes (http://www.sane.org.uk/what_we_do/aims_outcomes/
) to this forum. Sad, isn't it? hugs, Judith xxx
