I think it's great if a poster and their therapist can work together like that. I suppose it might be possible to make it required, but it could be a can of worms, too. With sports, doesn't everyone have to be cleared?

To resolve conflict in online groups? I could ask Kali Munro again. Or John Grohol? I think he has a different toolkit...
