I wanted to reply to the lady that mentioned she's scared of posting because nosybodies keep messaging privately to her but I can't remember where I saw it. Since I don't have time to start reading through everything to find it, I'll tell you over here. I would ignore immature people who want to get help/chizuk by private messaging (don't worry I got one too). I think mature people like us who come here to give and receive and are not trying to find out who people are can continue posting without fear. Have a good one!

Did I come across too harsh? I don't mean to hurt anyone's feelings? Dr. Lynn or anyone out there, please respond!

I agree that if someone is using the PM's all of the time to post then its invaluable to the rest of the posters. Then they might as well be emailing one another. It does seem a bit unfair too, to be using the material from "our" posts in private messaging.

However Im not sure if that is immature. Perhaps the person is really afraid of "talking" in a large group, and feels more comfortable communicating one on one. At the same time i think people should take the rest of us into consideration, and use this site the way it was set up to be used.

i didn't read the original post so i could have misunderstood this due to that.
i thought she was talking to people who were scared to post because they'd been getting private messages from people who seemed nosy and trying to find out who they were/give them advice that they hadn't asked for.
