This has been bugging me so I am putting it out there.
This morning at 10:21 am I got a PM asking me to
read this and see if you can guess who it is
The message contained info someone posted, somewhere, who sounded like they were having a hard time - not suicidal, just a hard time dealing with feelings.
My reply was to the effect that many here could fall into that category and just recommend they see a DR. I assumed they were referring to a person on JWD.
Messages went back and forth for almost 4 hrs before I was given the information that this was a person on another board!! I finally got this info after many PMs of asking what the URL was.
When I suggested that the person PMing me contact the admin on that board and the police in her area I was told
What a cop out.
Seemed someone was more interested in wawatching me do somersaults to get the hinted at info.
I am all for helping people. And if I had received a PM that said:
"I've been posting on another board and someone needs help and was wondering if you could check it out. Here's the URL"
I would have taken a look.
But to ask several times for the URL and keep getting "hints" and then not taking this seriously after almost 4 hours of back and forth shows an utter lack of real care for the person needing help and for anything I might have done to offer help.
I don't like being played.
BTW: The person needing help has been contacted
