I'm sorry you're feeling awkward and stifled in our chat rooms. While I can understand you might want to discuss some things in greater detail than out guidelines currently allow, we've learned that chat simply isn't the place for this. These guidelines have evolved over many years. They're designed to keep both rooms as safe and as focused on healing as possible. We appreciate your sharing your views but would like to suggest that if you feel the need to talk with more freedom about an issue that you utilize the PM system with someone else who isn't easily triggered. Until we reach a position where we have enough volunteers to staff the chat rooms 24/7 things are not likely to change.

We're all different of course, but just my thoughts on the chat room vs the board for those kinds of discussions :)/>
