- Need some advice...
- January 6th, 2011
As many of you know, I lost my baby and best friend Tom almost a month ago. Having no family or close friends to lean on for support, I started doing web searches on the Rainbow Bridge. This led me to petloss.com. A loss/grief support forum. For a while it was very nice posting to the message board, and getting some very kind responses. Then I made the mistake last night of going into the chat room. Not my strong suit at best. Especially late at night with a powerfully emotional subject matter. The mod's rule (zero tolerance/no 2nd chances) was not to judge people or make trouble. Well, of course he and others did just that. Already feeling sad and angry over my loss, I fought back. I get kicked out of the chat room. I figure, OK, no big deal, I'll just stick to the message board. I sent the mod/admin a message asking what I had done wrong, trying to fix the situation. I also posted about not having any luck in the chat room, and sticking to the message board. The message was never replied to nor was my post approved. Next thing I know, my user ID has been deleted. So much for caring and compassion for grieving pet parents. I guess it's grieve in the way I tell you or get out. My quandary: Do I try to contact him again to see if I can fix the situation or just move on and find another site keeping in mind that one appears to be the biggest and most established of it's kind? Do I really want to be part of a group that would do such a cruel thing in the wake of something they started? Thoughts?
