Social Anxiety Support?
Sorry to intrude on the mundane tranquility of this site but some things just need to be said...
Mostly everyone on this forum is suffering from a disorder that takes away the capability of having a voice in their everyday lives. It depressed them and makes them feel inferior to everyone around them. They wanted to know why this was so they researched themselves. They searched and searched until they ran across this site. They also come to find out that this site has a very active forum. O imagine the elated looks on their face when they saw people just like them all in one place. They found a place where they JUST might have a voice.
So they use that voice, and express their beliefs, frustrations, ideals, and opinions. How do you think they feel when their options mysteriously disappear, get locked from others responses, gets an infraction, or in some cases, they get banned, from a site where they thought they could finally express themselves in a place where they could actually, dare I say it, speak out?
The powers that be need to understand that people come to this site as a verbal and mental outlet where they can express their true thoughts and feelings. When you take that outlet away from them, they tend to get pretty ill-tempered, as you've seen already, and in most cases even more depressed. Yes, in some cases it is aprorprate to censors someones statements, but not all the time. If you're going to maintain a site dealing with social anxiety, an autocratic leadership surly is not, and never will be the correct way of doing so. Not everyone feels comfortable in a dictatorial environment.
This thread might get deleted right after I submit it, I might get yet another infraction, or might even get banned. Whatever may happen, I just wanted to speak my opinion about this forum when in reality, everything I just stated is pure fact.
