Replying to posts can take quite a while on a forum dealing with depression as one struggles to find the right words to give encouragement and advice to our fellow sufferers who are understandably very vulnerable.
Some of us did express concern that the widening of the forum geographically would bring problems. I am mildly annoyed for instance that having spent some time trying to reply helpfully to a recent post, it appears that some of my reply is totally non-relevant as the poster is not resident in the UK, although this was not apparent from the post but only from reading other posts on other forums.
It hardly encourages replies knowing that advice or help given is totally non relevant to someone outside the UK but not identified as such. Can the heading of a post not be modified to identify the country of origin ? I have no objection to helping sufferers in other countries but I do object to having my time wasted.
