I was asked to place this advice in Family and Friends too. It definitely has application here.
I debated putting this in the OFF TOPIC FORUM BUT DECIDED IT WAS BETTER HERE.
This is a safe place for survivors make no mistake about it. It is a place where you no longer are alone. All the Mods here do their best to keep it safe. There are ways we can all help. As you all know Trust is a huge issue with us. With this in mind I ask you all to pleae be very careful when it comes to giving personal information to anyone unless you are absolutely sure of their honesty.
There is something else too. If you receive a PM from someone on this site that you think is just not right, or offensive, or of an attacking nature, or appears to be prying into your privacy I ask that you promptly report it to any Mod.
As I said trust is huge with us and a betrayed trust can have a devastating affect on any of us.
This post is not meant to be a scare tactic. It is just common sense and information for those of us who are new here.
I might add that if any of the above occurs in chat please report it to a Chatroom Moderator.
Be not ashamed of mistakes and thus make them crimes.
False words are not only evil in themselves, but they infect the soul with evil.
IT REALLY IS OK TO STUMBLE. NONE OF US ARE PERFECT.
