I know that this post has probably run its course, however I hope no one minds as I want to share my tuppence worth. Whilst I agree it is important that people take personal responsability for what they post I think we need to remember that folk are usually fairly desparate and depressed when they post and the venting can prevent a whole serious of other events i.e, suicide, self harming etc etc. I know this because I have vented on the board on a number of occassions.

So whilst I think it is important to consider others I would urge folk to use the site as it is intended a mutual support and area to be and say whatever makes you feel better.

Take care

Surely it is up to us to decide on how much info is too much. I for one know that others can read our posts and I can be as vague or specific as I choose, on MY personal details.
