has anyone noticed or had a feeling from reading certain posts that there are people here who when it comes to lust seem to be very knowledgeable in fighting/curing it, but when it comes to other things like ways of talking to others , kavod habri'os,it seems to be a neglected thing by them,do other things get lost and sacrificed  due to fighting this nisayon, is it possible to fight lust AND to be careful of other peoples feelings ?HAS anyone had experience with themselves meaning they feel as they were  fighting lust, they were going down in other areas?

I think the forum speaks for itself - it seems to me that the vast majority of people and posts are respectful to others, sometimes the written word gets misunderstood by a reader  .

if anyone is interested ,there is an interesting politics hotline by someone yaakov m., its a real kosher way of being up to date on politics with an analysis he has some other news features, its only $3 dollars a month, or so, i think its worth it .( i dont know him personaly and im  not making anything on the deal , just sharing)number is 848 261 6397 (nice sense of humor too, sounds like a very Torahdig person) 
its called (the) jewish news channel,enjoy!

hi, just curios, i see here on posts how people say about themselves," im not bad , im sick..."is there anything wrong with me if i think about myself that im bad, but i want to do Teshuva?(and therefore im really good now )

Your post is funny to me. Without getting into the whole "sick" topic which has to do with addiction, you wrote (not exact quote) "If I'm bad and want to do teshuva, then I'm actually good" sounds like you answered your own question, no?

Good point,so your saying basically that someone who lusts is one out of two,
1.im sick(addicted)and have(want)to get healthy 
2.I'm bad(not addicted )and have(want) to do Teshuva.I hear.
I just get the feeling  that someone who is#2  doesn't like living with the feeling that he's bad and runs to number#1 im not bad but sick and basically does things that someone who is #2 does, Teshuva ,but sugarcoats it in healing(if it works it works) I was just saying what's wrong by realizing and admitting yes I'm bad (not rotten to the core),I have a neshama,a pintele yid,and I CAN fix it up ,and I don't have to escape from feelings of guilt,I messed up and I can clean up.
Of course there are addicts who are sick and it's not an issue of Teshuva,my post was focused to the other fellas.
thanks for pointing it out
