    That is pretty crazy. I'm sorry your friend lost her father in such a horrible way. I have wondered when you know a family is crazy and you just "think" they might need monitoring who do you call? There was one family that I knew were "off" just by looking at them. Many times I'd drive by and one or more would just be standing in the yard with completely blank look. Not a daydreaming look or a I'm stoned look but just a completely checked out look. It was about a year after I noticed them and started wondering how you find out if people like that are actually "ok" and being looked after, that the adult daughter killed the father. Apparently the whole family suffered from some kind of mental disability. I always wonder what I could have done to get them help. But who could I call and what do I say? "Those people appear to be crazy because they're always randomly standing in the yard staring into space. Can you go check on them?" And from what I understand they were already in they "system" but until someone actually snaps and does something like that, there isn't anything you can do.

    No - there isn't anything you could have done, so don't beat yourself up about it. Unfortunately mental health care is not what it should be.

    The people that I know weren't that "type" of crazy; in fact, people saw them as a family with a lot going for them as far as community involvement and position. They were/are just "strange". I used to tease my friend that she looked at her people as "those people across the street" that the neighborhood talked about, and she had to laugh, she said, because that's who they were. Physically, very good looking people. They would just make you scratch your head in wonderment. I can't help but wonder how crazy people find each other.

    Don't you know it!!!!!!!!! Not to badmouth, but although the members of TWOP were GREAT, the rules were out of this world. Depending on the particular forum, it was always scary posting, as you never knew when a small infraction could be detected from a very innocent post. It was stressful and time consuming as I had to review the posts several times, analyze it and then cautiously post.

    I got banned from there and never found out why. I still went to read, though.

    I'm very surprised that TWoP has closed! They were a huge site with so many show discussions. I posted there once in a while but it was too big to really make any personal connections with the other posters.

    It was a huge forum called television without pity. If you enjoyed snark it was full of snarky reality tv posts!

    I never was a member of TWoP, but read there religiously and was sad to hear it was closing.
