I am very sorry to hear that.

And, consequently, such a person who isn't aware of the consequences of harassment to a singly person just isn't mature enough to me.
I'm not defending DungeonHack's comment, nor am I condemning it. I'm just saying that the statement "You are not mature enough." is in my opinion an insult which isn't necessary here. Especially in a discussion about online insults/threats/harassment.

"Being mad about something" has in this context nothing to do with mental sanity. Just like "being pissed about something" has nothing to do with emptying the bladder. It's just a colloquial phrase for being angry.

If I had been a member of the staff, he'd demand to throw me out of that as well, because "mentally ill people" just "shouldn't do reviews".
RPGWatch is one of the more friendly forums I've seen so far, and I seriously doubt anyone would call you that here. So let's not assume people will behave like asses until they actually do.
