I find it fascinating how bright people will clutch at any straw to  
avoid coping with the unpleasant.   Fascinating in the same way that  
various disease processes are fascinating that is.    I wish I was  
able to convince more people to take this more seriously.  Alas my  
time, patience, and skills are limited.
