I agree with you, Sleepy, except we are not all adults using BB Forums. Some people are more vulnerable than others, too. I try to be mindful of that, even though I won't be permitted the openness I would like
Am I right, that, children are able to read across the entire forum, post across the whole thing too?
I can only imagine, had this site been around when I was a young teenager, I am certain I would have investigated pretty much every corner of this place, & would have been drawn to topics I was living with at the time - topics which the adults around me would not have dared talk about openly with each other, let alone with a child they knew could hear. It would have been of tremendous value to me simply knowing others felt as I was trying not to feel. Maybe I would have found help years earlier than I had.... the possibilities rattle round my head.
I'd like to be able to fix spelling mistakes, too, but if I could edit one letter, how many more would I edit? Knowing me, I might want to go back & re-write whole paragraphs! Then the chances are the post someone has written in response would seem to be in response to a somewhat different post. Could get quite confusing.
I guess, Golden82, we're going to have to live with our imperfections exposed!
