    Write something innocuous in the first line. then leave some spaces between in and the subject matter. this should take care of accidentally triggering someone.

    oh I guess Someone should tell you we have had a major change on the board. In December Webmd pulled all the moderators. We lost Caprice to cooperate changes. We don't know if they laid her off or she is working behind the scenes, nor were we given a chance to say goodbye.

    hi dogdancing,

    omg, what the heck? thank you for taking the time to fill me in on the changes. i understand that changes are made now and then, but to not say goodbye is something that just isnt right. i wonder if the moderators were not given the chance to say farewell, or if they were directed not to say goodbye, or if it was her decision not to inform the group. in any event, i thank you again for letting me know. how have you been? it's good to see all the familiar names here.

    Hi SoCal -
    Was wondering what happened to you. I hope all is well.

    There are no moderators behind the scenes . these boards are self operated . the only time they will step in is if there are any threats made. and the people that remove them are not the people we know and care about. this true fact from there office. you can call them and ask yourselfhey have laid off fourteen percent of the work force or 250 jobs, there maybe people behind the scenes, but i doubt it is anyone we know. on Feb 21 they are going to report the fourth qiarter earnings at four forty five. if you type in webmd news . it will tell you all this, caprice and the others were laid off. if you want type webmd news. it will tell you the latest

    hi kate, thank you for your response. i am ok for the most part. happy to report that although there have been a couple tumultuous incidences in the past 4 months, i remain free of harming myself. i regret that it has crossed my mind, but it was a fleeting thought , and i did not self injure. how are you doing?
