    Yes. I find it distracts and goes against the values that this forum (in my opinion) stand for.

    In some ways i like the freedom this forum has. Compared to where i was it is pretty much 'anything goes'.

    However i now understand why the limitations were put in place on the forum i came from.

    Perhaps something to be looked into...

    Yes, I am. Unfortunately in any large group of people, there will be people that don't get along. But it needs to be kept off the site.

    The more time and effort spent on the drama, the less is available to support the people who need it..

    (and yes, I know I have been guilty of it in the past..)

    Yes and it goes with the nature of our disease but allowing it to play out is like enabling an alcoholic so needs to be kept off SF but we are all family and we deal with each others quirks so....

    Yes >.< I thought this would be a safe place to be able to express myself, vent help and be helped.... Now I am not sure

    Let's be honest here... we're in a site where depressed and suicidal people meet. Drama free? That's like people wishing for world peace, not gonna happen. Ever. Might as well wish for a perfect world where mods arent needed and people hold hands and sing hare krishna.

    I've been on a pretty much drama free mental health forum before...

    For personal reasons i am not going to do that.

    And i didn't say there was no drama at all. 'Pretty much' meaning relatively low cases.

    Well o have not experienced too much drama. However, I can say yes it is annoying. I really wish it was not here. However we are all scared and sad. Negative emotions beget other negative emotions. This is what causes drama. I am not saying it is okay. However, we have to ask ourselves how much is too much? If someone is always causing drama are they really here for help? What happens if someone bursts once and then apologizes. What is an acceptable amount of anger, which is an emotion we all experience?

    Just rambling sorry.

    I don't thinks theres that much drama but I guess thats just me.
    It is a forum remember and since people are supposed to express their views, there is bound to be conflicts.
    But overall I think we've got a pretty good community here.

    Of course I think there's bound to be some drama since we're on a suicide forum. I mean, there's drama on 'regular' forums, so of course there's going to be at least some in a place where a bunch of people who have mental illness and/or other difficult issues are thrown together. But, I just really wish the personal drama would stay off the forum. That's what MSN or PMs are for... putting it all over the forum isn't fair for anyone.

    Completely agree with Misguided Ghost. If you have a problem with an SF member on MSN, AIM, Skype, Facebook, email, or anywhere else off of SF, don't bring it here. It doesn't belong here.
