I am someone who has also worked with substance users who dealt with trauma and abuse, and I also survived trauma and abuse and don't know why you write like you are the authority on the matter or feel the need to warn or correct anyone's posts. Or perhaps I have misunderstood you?
Maybe you could spell it out in layman's terms just what exactly is being said that you feel is hurtful when talking about the culpability of Karen Zerby?
Also, sometimes there are miscommunications when writing in a message board format and they can be cleared up with questions such as: "when you said _______ is________ what you were meaning?" This way you can clarify what you think is being said and you won't come off as the expert, infallible, solely articulate poster who knows what should and should not be said and how it should be said.
Credentials don't mean much to me because in the field of psych I have seen them used to destroy people.
