I don't come to this site as often as I used to. I still keep in touch with the people who made me feel very welcome when I first arrived. Despite some of them having gone through the most apalling ordeals, they were kind, supportive and gave me a lot of encouragement through blog comments and cheering messages.
I have noticed recently that a lot of people don't go to the chat room anymore. A group of individuals in the chat room think it's entertaining to belittle, insult and make other chatters feel in general small and intimidated.
Perhaps these individuals have forgotten what this site is for. It's about fear and sadness - those who feel the need to perpetuate those emotions are clearly in need of a gang around them to feel big. They should remember that by ostracising others they are doing exactly what they hope someone won't do to them.
Let's face it, gangs are for children. Last time I looked this site was for adults so maybe they should start behaving like them.
