    Thumbs down Has anyone been on bluelight.org?

    In every post I make, they just post off topic nonsense. The site is apparently aimed at heavy drug users. It's probably not a good site to gain advice from either.

    Hi Pedro. sorry your having a hard time finding a place more suited to your liking. I've been looking for quite some time and in most cases just come back here and keep in touch with my 'UK-AF' friends. I don't need the number people look for on say FB. I actully have better connections in here than in there.

    I took time out to checked the link you provided. Everyone's view point will undoubtedly be different. For the most part I personally have no probs with how the OP is expressing. We should all be given the opportunity to say things as we feel fit. Some of the responses can sound heartless but then people are generally apathetic these days as the world continues to regress. I had a bit of a flick through the main forum index and skimmed a few posts and found the site not too bad on moderation. Just my opinion of course. Not too many power trippers. However the side effect with not having moderators 'add to the discussion' as a means of moderation, results in a lot of online abuse as the trade off to freedom of speech. This abuse not unlike in dysfunctional families. This being why I typically stay away from what I term as overly populated main stream mental health forums. I guess it would be the same here if we had too many active users and no one to add to the discussion in a way to keep ourselves and others grounded.

    Re getting drug advice online. Totally agree that is not a good idea. Especially in places with dysfunction. Yet, I think is OK to share experiences. People just have to educate themselves on how to discern and how to effectively use such information. In this regard anxiety leads to unwise decisions and also distorted information. The latter being why in the end we should only rely on our own experiences. This even applies to when seeking professional advice. No doubt a better option to begin with Vs trolling unstable mental health forums. Once you work out how to navigate like so, it can then be possible to extract a couple of nugget of gold from even the most toxic of places. However you need a lot of insight and tolerance for that.

    Here is the home page of that site. Looks OK on the surface ... but not my kind of mental masturbation. I prefer to knock off in here instead. Create my own topics within my own threads. All that said, it would be nice to see more traffic coming through here. Possibly because those few of us here tend to talk about hard core truth ... this might put a lot of main-streamers off. I'm just guessing ... for now ... I and a few others seem content enough to make the most of it here.

    Hey dude ... that game is out now hey. I am kicking myself I did not get it. It is still however on my wish list. I got 7 Days To Die instead. Hope you are doing well enough.

    A lot of forums are like this online. Especially ones about games. I have started to use them less, and I may try to get more into live streaming. It is hard to do that too.

    I wish I could take my ex support people to court. I really think Sara and Joanne are not fit for being support workers. That company they worked for kind of sucks.
