Re: Mabus gets help
My ex is bi-polar, and while she is completely nuts, she's not Mabus nuts. I can attest to the allure of the crazy phase as opposed to the not-so-crazy phase. Even just being in a relationship with her, and not myself being in that state of mind, it was something that I subconsciously sought after. The highs are fucking high, but god-dammit if the lows aren't lower than you can imagine.
Having said that, and reflecting on bi-polar persons (I tried to forget about it), it seems to be a cop-out excuse for his behavior. Although, I don't think "fucking nuts" is a clinical term.....

Incidentally, how come Dennis Markuze, you know, the crazy guy who keeps turning up to issue actual frickin' death threats --- currently has a member rating of 5?
There are moderators with lower scores than that, so if we really like him that much I suggest that Percy should sack Chuck77 and put Markuze in charge.
We've tried everything else, and no-one was happy, so I say it's time. Let the lunatics run the asylum.

It's impossible to say for sure--bipolar disorders fall across a broad spectrum, from mildly depressed/mildly manic to suicidal depression/florid psychotic mania. But psychiatric institutions don't tend to hold people for mild to moderate disorders, due to budgetary pressures if nothing else. His biggest challenge will be upon release, since community outreach and outpatient support have suffered most in budget cuts.
I'd hazard a guess that in his manic phase he had little to no control over his actions, and when depressed he withdrew into total isolation. There would be brief periods in between spent contemplating the horror and shame of his nightmare roller coaster ride.
I guess I'm a softie. I can feel nothing for him but pity.

1. He never banned or suspended anyone.
2. He wasn't boring.

So, superuniverse (apparently Dennis Marcuze), what is it you like about Herbert Marcuse, other that his name being similar?
