Before I joined this board, I read the rules and agreed with and to abide by the rules as set by the powers that be. One of these rules was to be respectful of others and never be insulting of some else's life choices (even if you don;t agree). Sadly lately I have noticed on a few occasions these rules have been ignored and a very small number of individuals have chosen to ignore these rules and be disrespectful and potentially hurtful to other posters. It fills me with great sadness to see such behaviour, the distress from such behaviour can cause so much pain. And potentially those who need this board could leave through fear of being hurt again. Can I just simply say if you cannot be supportive of another posters personal difficulties, it is better not to say anything. The negativity and ripples of discomfort affects many in this community I am sure. Please keep this a happy and positive board, such boards are supposed to create a community not alienate people.
Thank you for reading and I hope all in this community have a lovely weekend.
