One last point.

This is not meant to offend, just to clarify.

The reason that this analogy bothers me, is that abused woman unlike the original posters target are not being duped.

Beaten women are not 'fooled' into staying they are TERRORIZED into staying. And unless you understand that basic truth you will likely not understand why this analogy offends those of us who lived it.

That's it. I did not come to join a forum, or even trade insults with trolls, I paid my 'fee' so I could express the utter and profound disdain I have for what I believe is the trivialization of something very personal to me.

Reply if you want, I don't generally post in forums and I am done posting here, you will not get a response.
