Message board guideline
Find a Conversation

Hello, I am not sure who to address this to. Way back when every board had guidelines for posting at the top of the page. There were cm's who regularly posted and kept the boards on track--it was also easy to contact a cm. These guidelines were incredibly helpful for most boards and especially helpful for "Betrayed Spouses Support" board as it clearly listed the board was just that--support for betrayed spouses, a safe place for the betrayed spouse to post without being harrassed. With all the changes this has disappeared along with many, many posters who offered great support. A while back I was the cl of the board (before all the changes) and betrayed spouses could post and not feel attacked by those in affairs or those who had them in the past. Now the board has become a spot for debate with comments from people in affairs and attacks from those who clearly are not dealing with the same pain as those who have a spouse cheating on them. This is so very sad.
Will the board guidelines ever be returned? Is ivillage looking for a different kind of message board, not a 'support' board? It is a shame that this change has occurred. I know personally the old board helped me years ago and I felt I helped others when I posted after my experience. Now I rarely post as I feel it is no longer a supportive environment. I hope something can be done.
