I've requested that the posts that I have created over a year ago but suddenly put in moderation be deleted and they still remain in purple messages. Could someone just delete the posts + I'm just no longer interested in them.

Thanks

When a post is put on probation, it is not publicly visible until the edits are approved. (Only the original poster and moderators can see it.) Therefore, if the post is not edited to comply with publishing standards, then for all practical purposes, the post has been deleted.

I routinely delete Purple Moosages.

I have just shared about a topic I have some professional training about, and it was said to "not meet our publishing standards". I review my post, and sorry, there nothing wrong, only scientific explanation about the autonomic nervous system! I was not "suggesting that introverts are less than perfect and 'damaged' in some way". I have explained the reason why we can be introverts when we had some very early shock trauma! We are not less than perfects, though we have been damaged....

I don't see why explaining that some people have been damaged by an accident is not acceptable.
A damage comes from the outside, so it is not the same as saying that "somebody is less than perfect", don't you think so?

Please be a little more understanding about what people take time to share about, when this is a subject you do not know about!

Xisca,  Is it possible it has something to do with the way it was said?  Maybe it was said as if it was the only explanation instead of one way of understanding the situation.  

I haven't read the post in question, but I do know it's caused a lot of negative response which is unusual for your posts.  Perhaps what you said hit a nerve or didn't leave room for other people's ideas.

Thanks for your very kind answer... It is very opportune to talk about hitting a nerve for this topic! Absolutely nobody shares about the ANS, and I think it would be fundamental for permaculture actually... Why our society is hiding fundamental informations about the biggest system of our body? It is the chief of digestive, respiratory, circulatory, immune systems and more! ...or else I would not spend some time sharing what I know! When we express ideas, this never means others ideas are "bad", they can express them as well. I share my explanation, but it is the one of some scientists. In this case I insist that there is scientific knowledge behind and that it was more than ideas but informations. I chose to edit and add more explanation.

The topic is actually simple, but complicated because of the current paradigm, though the science is there. My training was 3 years long, and I chose to do it twice because I wanted to understand all the steps while having already learn all of it. So I can understand the reaction.

I'm afraid your post is still far from meeting publication standards - a moderator is likely to contact you shortly to discuss the matter.  

I suspect your professional training has narrowed your outlook somewhat as there are many, many naturally introverted people who are not damaged in any way.  Your writing seems to exclude this possiblility and your edits have left the post worse than when it started.

What about phrasing it like "one explanation for XYZ could be..."  or "I've noticed that sometimes..." or "one theory I heard for this ...."

That way it leaves room for other peoples experiences and opinions.  

Your posts are well thought out, just sometimes people experiences are different so it's good to phrase it as one of many explanations rather than a scientific fact.

I think it has widened my outlook and given me more freedom... and the absence of this knowledge in mainstream science is part of the same as pesticides, contamination and all  what permaculture fights for. It damages. And it is very different when you say that we are - or are not - damaged. The guilt is somewhere else! It is outside us. In my case it was the owner of the lab where my mom should not have worked pregnant.

Also, where starts and end a damage? The word itself does not account for the intensity or the scale. Some small damages are not seen. It was my case and I would never have figured out that the chemicals that touched me were the cause of my shyness. I am not ashame of having had damage, it was not my fault! My other died last year from a type of lymphoma aid to be mostly from chemicals.... we were hurt at the same time. I knew for long that my liver had been damaged, but nobody told me that also my autonomic nervous system had been damaged!

So I never meant that introverts ARE damaged but that they HAVE been damaged, and we all had some sort of damaging accident! I know absolutely nobody who has not been damaged in any way. So there cannot be any link with "being less than perfect". I see it as impossible.

And this is a relief when people can see the connexion. I have guessed it for several persons, and including sometimes the type of accident that was involved!!! I also know the difference that makes the reaction to any damage/accident show as extrovertion or introvertion, but that would be out of scope. Introvertion is one type of adaptation, it is mine, and again, it has scales like a thermometer.

When you say "I suspect your professional training has narrowed your outlook", is this suspicion about me not being honest, and is "narrow" a way to say I am less than perfect? Burra, you have once before told me I was not honest about how I had multiple times edited a post or two, based on you seeing the time of edition, and I had to justify about leaving my windows open as Ii was transfering some content from one place to another... That might be why you suspect me? I know you have shared in a topic where I posted too, that you are an introvert. I do NOT mean to challenge you if you think this is genetic for example. I am on the same side of the thermometer as you! I am a safe and honest person but I cannot make you believe it.

So... I WANT TO SHARE ABOUT SOMETHING THAT IS NOT KNOWN because if it was, it would PROVE THE DAMAGE OF CHEMICALS! And more.
This is a big piece for permaculture.
This is a big piece for relationships in general.

Porges has worked with autistic children, to apply his discovery. From the polyvagal perspective, he says that autism and ptsd have in common the difficulty to feel safe even in safe places. Let me quote him about the problem with mainstream ideas....
p88 of the pocket guide to the polyvagal theory.
"I decided that if I focussed on auditory hypersensitivities, I could move into an area that would be helpful and wouldn't be viewed as controversial, such as trying to cure autism ... Since the diagnistic assumes a lifelong disorder based on an unidentified genetic cause... the psychiatric community interprets a reversal of symptoms as being due to faulty diagnosis and not a true recovery."
I have reversed fibromyalgia and a near aspergers state by knowing it was not as in my head as they make us believe, and the autonomic nervous system is the chief of orchestra of all other systems in the body. (Only the cell itself might be above it... and maybe some unknown energy I dont know...). We are still free to keep what we want of our personality, but I think it is very open and full of hope to say that there has been a form of physiological fear because of a threat to our safety! You can even see genetics as a form of threat if some genes are not the best for us! Fear is a very healthy reaction to have so that we can safe ourself. Anxiety, that I never had, is more when the sympathetic system has been triggered and blocked at one point. All forms of calmer reactions, that I tend to have, show that the parasympathetic system was more triggered. You will always see both forms of reactions in any big accident/threat involving different persons. I used to be quite immune to fear and anger, but I discovered it did not mean they were not there. Actually, it was in the pains I had, and I still have a slow metabolism, on the way to get it better! All what we have no access to with our cortex, is the domain of the ANS (and the limbic too, phylogenetically between cortex and ANS).

If saying "one explanation could be", then I see no problem... For me, it is implied automatically whenever I say or somebody else says anything! Just read it in my signature...

About the polyvagal theory, people can think that if called "theory" it means it is not a scientific fact, but in science, when something is called a theory, it does not mean hypothesis! I quoted the book, this work is a masterpiece,, already used by many, and explaining several techniques that evolved in parallel. It explains a lot of animal behaviours etc etc. This is a big help for permaculture that I want to share, and I can see this is not so easy so better refer to the book, after all it is around 250 pages...

And it is a theory I have been studying and applying for 8 years. I believed in it right away because I am an animal behaviourist and it made sense right away.

I think the issue may be one of tone, Xisca.

You just stated that you believed the theory as soon as it was put to you. That suggests an inability to vet it objectively, because you subjectively want it to be valid.

Leaving that aside, I have had conversations on this site that underwent extensive edits, not because I had said anything factually incorrect, but because the way in which I conveyed my information shut down any discussion on the matter. It is necessary in discourse to leave room for the ideas of others, even if just in form.

Also, in that way, if you state something at one time that in the moment appears to be the only logical explanation that you revisit later and realise was perhaps a little optimistic or narrow-minded, you have an easier time of admitting potential wrongness.

I also tend to think that if you can't leave the cited material and explain the phenomena in ways others can comprehend without your practical background, that might affect how your message is perceived.

Maybe simplifying and analogising more would help.
