> You are correct. I have been to chat rooms where you better have a thick skin. I abandon those for this one which seemed very safe. I am not so sure if this is so anymore. In therapy groups safety is a top priority. This is a very large therapy group without a mediator and the potential for abuse concerns me. I feel a great reluctance to post, including this one.

I agree with your concerns, and I wonder if Dr. Bob can say a bit more on this. I think it's more than just administrative...I think it involves the feeling of boundaries on a public board. I feel safer on here than say on the IRC 'Newsgroups', but I don't think you should be feeling so unsafe.
Anyhow, I am not trying to be critical of the board, but I wonder if Dr. Bob maybe could expand on the theraputic 'safety' issue a bit more. :-)
