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.
