Some of the websites which mentioned MicroSort seemed to mention PGD in the same phrase, which is clearly not separating sperm. Anyone really know anything about this? (And not off the Google search, as I can do that myself).

My mother and I are extremely close. My aunts and I are like sisters (them being aged 8-16 when I was born).
I have only ever wanted a little boy (once I accepted the notion of having kids).
I have a baby girl I adore and do not regret, but I still want a boy.

What got my back up and reason for my quoted post on page 25 or so, was several people denying anyone had implied that people who favour / go through with gender selection were unwell. Had they been following from the start, they'd know that was untrue.
In that same post, I did say that the quotes were a bit old, and it seemed like most people (including myself) agree that severe GD causing depression etc was an issue which needed to be addressed. In particular anyone going to the extreme and terminating for that reason alone.
What I don't agree with is the blanket statement that anyone who goes through with it is mentally unwell. Maybe that wasn't said by anyone explicitly, but after reading 24 pages, it's what I took to be the opinions of a few, hence my disagreement.

From memory, @VicPark's comment came soon after that too.
This was an ongoing discussion that you weren't a part of at the time. You've cherry picked posts to prove your point, and left out the post that your chosen posts were based on.
As you admitted, no one actually said what you think they said, particularly the three people you targeted.

Obviously it would be regulated differently in the US to what we would have here.
Although I still don't oppose highly regulated GS I think I've come to a conclusion on how I *think* I would be comfortable with it.
Microsort ONLY to increase chances of a preferred gender but not PGD to determine the gender. Only being restricted to a specific number of Microsort cycles.
IVF/ICSI the sorted sperm for infertile couples with multiple failed full cycles NOT transfers. I'm unsure where you draw that line. IUI only for fertile couples seeking a specific gender (after say, 3 of the opposite, not for a 'pigeon pair') also with a limited number of attempts.
Of course, counselling would be a must for anyone doing it to determine any underlying issues, potential future disappointment (LGBTI for example) and how to deal with the children already born as there is a chance that they may feel like they were never good enough being the gender they are...... I could probably poor a lot more thought into it but my newborn and toddler have turned my brain to mush today.
