  • Do not post anything that could be construed as racist, homophobic, sexist, harassment or abuse.
  • Anybody can read this website, so please do not use sexually explicit language or swear words.
  • Avoid using names in your posts (e.g. those of spouses, professionals, ex partners, children etc); you may be putting them (and yourself) at risk by doing so.

Personal Attacks:

  • Do not make personal attacks on other discussion members.
  • If another discussion member makes a personal/abusive remark directed at you, do not respond with a similar attack of your own. Contact the administrator.
