Lately it seems like we are spending more time arguing with each other on this site then supporting each other. I see people wanting to "police" this site from harmful elements. Yet they don't listen to what others are actually saying. I see people who are trying to help others by sharing videos and messages from the internet without checking out where the source of those things come from causing people to be triggered. I see people from the left and the right bringing there politics here and in this day of tribalism causing toxic arguments that drive many from the site. We come from all walks of life and have many many differences. But we all have something in common. We are hurt and we need help and that is why we come here.
I want to purpose a thought experiment. Say you go to the doctor for a routine visit and you express a small concern about something going on with your body. This leads to tests and more tests and then you are sent to a specialist because your doctor thinks you may have some rare disease. If you have it you will die painfully sometime in the next couple of years.
I ask you to put yourself in that position and ask yourself. Do you want this place to be a toxic battlefield or what it was when you first came here. A place of kindness and support where you can feel safe in this time of crisis. I know which I would choose.

@Support Groups it might just be my tablet but I've accidentally flagged posts lots of times. I've noticed, only what I can assume, is most of the time and unflag them but I don't think I've ever purposely flagged anything that wasn't obviously needing to be flagged. Just felt like sharing that.

@Jordan5683 I've also noticed this too, I think it might just be the website and that if someone has flagged a post it will also show up as flagged on your end too. I rarely flag posts and never flagged anything that didn't need flagging but I will notice that sometimes a post is flagged on my end when I never remember seeing it or flagging it.

@Jordan5683 If something is flagged accidentally you can go back and unflag it by clicking on the flag icon. If it is flagged by someone else it will remain flagged until we either delete it or unflag it.
