Post Content Rules

Responses to shares must only be affirmative. People cannot be challenged, questioned, or otherwise made to feel that what they say might not have been heard. Don't tell them to see a therapist or to post some place else.

The inspiration for this is the No Cross Talk rule from the f2f meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous. There you are not allowedd to say anything at all. Because this is not f2f we have to modify the rule some. People need to know that they have been heard. So affirm what you can. We allow this much in responding. But again, no questioning, no refuting, no alternate explanations, no attempts to change their thinking in any way.
