(((((((((((HUGS))))))))))) and you go girl. I am so happy you found us and I too have been banned from a site and I was the lead moderator on a large site. They just locked me out and would not tell me why or what I had done other than to quote some broad rules. Members that posted in the forum wanting to no where I was were reprimanded and some even banned for daring to ask.
A post was placed on the site that my name was not to be mentioned. I was crushed..............so sweetie I been there and know how you feel.
I talked it through with my therapist and she felt it was very close to abusive behavior and hostile toward someone that had joined the site for help and came away harmed by the site.
There were others and we got together and negoiated with the Administration of the site until rules were changed to prevent other members being harmed as we were. We felt we had at least made an impact with our communication with the Administrator. Also some positions at the top were reprimanded and are no longer with the forum due to their unprofessional behavior toward the banned members.
HealingWell is run completely different. The moderators are members just like everyone else. We have problems and we are allowed to ask for help to. I find everyone here helpful and friendly.
Venting is allowed and hugs are in abundance. Please remember you are family here and as Yana said so well, Home is where the heart is and my heart is with HealingWell and all of you.
