We have three simple rules here: No methods. No partners. No hate.
Please do not talk about specific methods here. Your posts or comments will be removed without notice if you do.
Please do not post requests for partners. Your posts or comments will be removed without notice if you do.
Please do not post hateful things here. Your posts or comments will be removed without notice if you do.
I know some of you don’t care, and that’s why some of you don’t follow the rules. I get it. But for this community to work, we need everyone on board. If you can’t get on board with these three simple rules, please find another place to hang out. Thx.

PS – And please don’t comment with excuses why your post or comment didn’t apply to these rules. I can still care about your life without caring about the excuses you make for breaking our community’s rules.
Dear SP Administrator, In response to your note today, which included your statement, “…I know you don’t care, and that’s why some of you don’t follow the rules. …”,
would you please consider adding the word (s), “some”, OR “a few of you”, etc.
before “don’t care”-
Because, I CARE VERY MUCH, both about you (+ all administrators), as well as I care about those here that are kind + decent, who I expect like me, try their best to follow all your rules.
Hopefully you did not intend to infer “none” of us care, but that is how your sentence reads.
Thank you for your efforts to help those in need,
who might have nobody else + nowhere to go,
to talk about (suicide + death).
Quick story- A recently had a (negative) experience with a young cashier, who was rude, nasty, disrespectful, unprofessional + outright obnoxious- When I (calmly) asked her why she was behaving that way to me (after watching her smiling + joking around with her co-workers while I waited for my food, about 15 mins. she went off on a long complaining rant about how horrible the customers were at her employment site (an Atlantic City casino)-
And while that (likely) may be true for some guests+ visitors here, since I have myself many times witnessed people acting completely inappropriate (fights, cursing, threats, and worse) there (both guests + employees).
I PERSONALLY WAS VERY OFFENDED THAT SHE FELT THE NEED TO ACT MEANLY TO ME, without any cause.
I (calmly) told her if she disliked the customers so much that she was unable to ever be kind or polite to anyone she served,
she needed to find another job.
(Think about it, if u truly do believe that NONE of us care).
Thank you, and “Happy Holidays”,
a time of year when people are reminded to “show love + good will towards all men”
(or whatever that saying is).
I appreciate you keeping this space open as a place for people, and I try to keep to the spirit of those rules, along with the reminder to ‘Please be kind’ (which doesn’t always come naturally.) Hope you have a good christmas.
I’m sure it’s tough for you guys to do what you do here, considering you’re dealing with a variety of types of people dealing with various degrees of pain, sadness, emptiness, and the like. That being said I appreciate what you do and I do hope the end of this decade and the beginning of the next turn out well for you.
Thank you for giving us a place to vent our brain farts….and discuss our dark sides.
I’ll consider abiding by the rules if you get rid of the ridiculous two-column layout.
It’s honestly insulting to suicidal people to have their post competing with the one in the other column. Lots of posts these days get zero comments, it never used to be like that before.
