Big difference between lending/receiving support vs self indulgence, attention mongering vs therapy. We are not medically trained/mental health-trained professionals here. There are issues that are outside the scope of this forum. Not to be confused as judgement or lack of compassion by our members. All we can do is recommend outside therapy. Sometimes we call it as we see it. It's as simple as that.
So having said all that, I have noticed some chronic thankers to every.single.reply., one by one, the ants go marching on, while appears gracious, it does keep their threads bumped above the threads of others & no longer "front page news."

This is the most successful forum on the internet or maybe it's my chemo fog, but I don't get it. Who here has the right to tell anyone they need urgent psych help, that's an insult in my book and better left unsaid or sent via pm or suggested nicely as a friend. And what is wrong with thanking the people that give you advice, seriously I wish I had the stamina to do like others do, one by one, but I'm basically a lazy person and I do one post for all thank you's. If you don't like a particular post, skip it. Or maybe I had to be here longer to understand it, seems the ones complaining have been around a long time but sure haven't been here in awhile, at least I haven't seen them much in the almost year I've been here. If you so dislike how it is, get back on here and be active.
I disagree that people can't find us here, there are new ones daily and guest amounts look pretty good to me but there could also be a big drop (only admin will know) based on the fact that they've opened up some new walls on Facebook and they're pretty good and cover lots of areas about CRC.
I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings on other sites or be disrespectful but they're not as good as here and I have to agree with Sophy, this is an amazing resource. But... the others are going to catch up or if a person spends a lot of time on FB, much easier to stay there if you find what you need instead of going out and finding the Club.

peanat, I read this forum regularly although post rather infrequently.peanut_8 wrote:... there does seems to be a pattern with certain posters that goes beyond a typical cancer rant. After being called out on inappropriate comments, they profess sorrow. Sorry, sorry, sorry. Butt never apologizing to the original person they maligned.
