I think the thing that concerns me most, are the new guidelines for support. It sounds like if you can't agree with someone, then you shouldn't post to them at all.
There are times when a poster is suicidal, not taking medicine correctly, not eating properly, not thinking clearly, and some small measure of "tough love" is needed.
I'm not sure it is in the posters best interest to agree with them that mega doses of something (just because it feels good) is a good idea or confirm they don't need to call their doctor or go to the hospital when they are suicidal.
If I'm heading the wrong way down a one way street, I hope someone will stop me and not just nod and say, "nice to see you, so sorry you are having a bad day."
I already feel like I can't talk about my faith or give my political beliefs. Most of the time on Babble, I feel like I'm only giving about 25% of who I am. I think that is Babble's loss.
