Oh, look, first banned commenter in a long time.
Kids, don't do that. It's rude.
And if you piss me off enough, I will make a public example of you. I'm a Yankee; a lot of us wouldn't see our way amiss to re-instituting the stocks.
By the way? If you perceive somebody as potentially weak, or having fragile boundaries, and you want to make a pass at taking control of them?
The whole flattery-coupled-with-advice thing will work on the unsavvy/seriously damaged, and it's one of the reasons why people who later turn out to be abusive to their partners and/or friends can seem so very charming at first.
However, if you look at that second link, you'll get an idea of what they get like if you start to set boundaries. Of course it's worse if they've been nice long enough that you are already living with them and have quit your job.
Also, those of you who don't know what women are making fun of when we mock the fragile and overinflated male ego? That's it in action.
Don't worry; most of you actually aren't like that.
Also, just so you know: no point in kicking him. I've frozen the threads.
