I used BPD world some time back(I have some bpd traits) and agree with you that Josh is a suspect character, but didn't want to deny other people the right to make up their own minds, as to how good or bad the site is, by not having a link to the site.

I know a fair number of people left there and a small number of alternative support sites were set up, but none of them flourished very well unfortunately.

I was kicked off there because i complained that i was not allowed access to the paid members area which i had paid for access to and that nobody had got back to me, despite several emails sent by me,to ensure that the problem was solved.
Basically i paid £15 odd for a part of the board i couldn't access.

I also know that several female posters made accusations of sexual improprieties by Josh but do not know for certain whether these were true or not.

i think it would be a good idea if your list of sites was made a sticky - anyone else agree? sometime it's really important to have support for specific issues, and it's not always easy to find the right site, hugs, Judith xxx

I know of a service user who paid £30 for an assessment, which he took, but then woudnt give a response to the assessment because he didnt want to contradict the psychiatrists diagnosis... he offered follow up email contact but got very grumpy after the second email. Refund refused,

I would recommend people avoid ginving him any money whatsoever.
