Dear all

There has been a rise recently in people posting threads issuing a general invitation to come chat.

In order to avoid cluttering up 'my voice', and pushing healing threads down, these should only be posted by Chat moderators opening up a moderated chat.

Additionally, if they explicitly ask/beg for people to support you through a rough time, they can create a feeling of pressure in those reading them. If you are having a bad time and no one is available in chat, please consider contacting a crisis line, or post about how you're feeling.

Thanks
The Moderators
