  1. But yet I had pm's that I had deleted
  2. In my case it is not just after 2011 I am missing lots of topics from when I joined in 2007
  3. I loved the way you described what AS was like when I first started on here - dont' remember how many years ago - lol. I was on here all the time and my husband wondered if it was hurting me. When I had joined here it was after remembering csa and I was devastated. But it is true I was so immersed in it and talking about it in my own topics. And it seemed no matter who I replied to I could related to. It really is a great way to clean out those wounds. When I first started it was so all encompassing I never thought I would see the end I thought my life was over. Now it is so differen
  4. I think it is a good idea. Instead of a topic chat it will be a topic avoidance chat.
  5. Thank you that is beautiful It also takes courage to go through it with us. :flowers:
  6. Lene Thank you very much. :flowers: Your welcome. It was all worth it and I am glad it worked as well as it did. :hug: Pam
  7. :flowers: I want to offer a sincere public apology to Ashley-Michelle. I sent her a private one via PM which she graciously responded to at length. The reason I chose to post this here is because in this thread I made mention of a bad experience with a mod. I feel it only right that I own my part in that and finish what I started. I have had negative and unresolved feelings since last year. Part of it being a feeling of impotence and not knowing what was happening, anger at the rules and how they were presented to me. Every time someone was banned those feelings would rise again.
  8. Thanks azazo I never thought of singing to break the tension The way I sound right now it would be comic relief. :hug: :hug:
  9. I don't think you will get banned. I say that assuming you haven't been in trouble before. :hug: I mean no disrespect to you but I don't think we can (should) say someone is or is not a safety issue. It is a challenging statement and I was hoping to avoid those. I can relate to your not being able to understand why they see your friend as a safety issue. Personally I have trouble with the word "safety" but I can't come up with a better one. But the rules are in place and they are universal and we have to accept that they see something we don't. I have remained in contact wit
  10. Lene Thank you for responding to Cathie's post. Cathie I think this thread is evidence of that fact that we can question. If it is done respectfully and impartially. For the first little while this thread was on the boards lots of views but no responses. I did receive PM's which I was grateful for but it also frustrated me because I wanted the conversation in the open. As I have read the posts I have come to realize that perhaps the mod's were as hesitant as I was. That from experience they know that they can say or do something with the best of intentions and still get attacked
  11. I hope so too because that was not the atmosphere when I started here. :hug: I appreciate that you (all the workers) have been willing to post. I sincerely hope no one got any negative PM's as a result of this thread. I received a nasty PM about a mod once- I could not understand where all the venom was coming from. Not that anyone deserves it but this person really not. I guess when a volcano erupts it doesn't really care what it destroys. I appreciate receiving a couple of examples of what has happened. It helps get a perspective. I also appreciate the reassuring w
