Hi all!
Well, I just had an exciting and adventurous morning on another online diet "support" group site. And I use the word "support" in quotes, because MAN OH MAN did I NOT feel the love!
This particular site IS indeed monitored, but seems to be hijacked at this point by several members who believe that they can use whatever tone and language and insinuation they like. And if you OBJECT, well, Katy bar the door!!! You will be accused of NOT LISTENING, or being TOO SENSITIVE, or, the best one, I CAN SAY WHATEVER I LIKE BECAUSE THE PROBLEM IS WITH YOU! And since these members are involved in a sub-group, the REST of the sub-group will jump all over you, too!
I've NEVER been involved with a site such as that, and am seriously debating whether or not to continue on over there.
Anyways, in the site's defense, the Administrators were SUPER-QUICK in deleting the thread. BUT, what amazes me is that the tone and intent of several posters still remains, and continues on!!! This issue has been ongoing and will continue, I fear, until attitudes change...
Just glad to be here, on this site, that's all.
:hug:

I have never found a support site, for any purpose or reason, that was more supportive than 3FC. People here make an extra effort to be supportive, and to give a little of themselves. You don't see that in other places, and it is one of the reasons that 3FC is so special.

i really think this place is great. almost everyone here that i've met is supportive and the mods do a great job of making sure that if a thread is getting a bit heated...they control it. Now sometimes people take offense to it...but honestly its better than getting a bunch of people offended.

What they all said is just why I joined - I read only for months but finally joined and I love it

I, also feel much support here. It's awful how others can take a site that is meant to help, and destroy it and make others not want to join! I haven't posted much on 3FC-but I love it so far!! Keep up the good work everyone!!

I NEED this board. They've kicked my butt when it was needed, hugged when I was in distress, laughed with me and been wonderfully supportive people.

I'm glad you are here, too. Congrats on those 45 you've lost.

<3 3FC Forums! Everyone here just wants everyone else to succeed! We all want everyone to be happy & live their lives to the fullest. It's so much more fulfilling for me to see goals reached than to win a discussion (though I don't think you can win a discussion...).

Everyone here wants for EVERYONE to built up! (Or built down as the case may be :lol:) I don't want to be on top of a mountain by myself, I want to be on top of the world with everyone else!!!

Dear Ms. Mele --
WhenEVER I see your name, I pronounce it out loud 3 or 4 times, because I love the sound of it, and because it makes me happy, and because if I ever meet you, I'll know what to say!
And, *cough*NO*cough*... but now I'm inTRIGUED! Gotta go surf!
