I just want to say a quick hello and welcome to the board. I will check out your link when I have more time. I also remember the lenghs I had to go to in order to post on a DV board. I used the name want2leave partially to hide who I was since I was a cl on another board at the time but also in case my ex idiot stumbled on the board he wouldn't see my name and start reading. When what do I do? I tell him about the board and he goes and prints off some of my post. I will understand that because they were ones about him not anything he could have used against me, lol. When I printed off what I caught him doing on line it was something I could use against him. He had joined a site looking to have sex with other women. He not only had nude pics of himself posted but said he wasn't married and had no children. Turned out I didn't need it but at least when I printed something it could have been useful for me, LOL.

Have a great day and weekend in case I don't get back before Saturday.

How is facebook any safer? If anything, it is more intrusive. A lot of people have personal facebook with freinds/family. They would need to have a separate email/login facebook for posting to another facebook that is DV perspective. I still feel forums is the way to go as it keeps it more anonymous.

I know that with facebook anyone can set their settings on a high level as to only let friends and family see them. Its pretty safe as I had asked a guy who fixed my computer. He said facebook is pretty secure otherwise the whole site would be shut down and it wouldnt exist.

Hi. I feel pretty safe on this board. And there are some really great people here who give great advice and who can relate to my issies. I used to think I was the only one going through this but my goodness, how wrong I was. I have a feeling that there are even some that I worship with that are going through something similar. I want to scream, "don't suffer in silence" but I too am weak.

No I do not have you mixed up with anyone. You survived abuse therefore in my book you are not weak. I forget what you thought you were to weak to speak up about and its a pain to look back on my phone but I know enough to stand behind what I said!!!!

oh; okay.then thanks for the vote of confidence .

All I can say is we all must be strong if we survived and are able to talk about it..in which sometimes I have no idea where the strength comes from except maybe God..

Have a Great Holiday....

I think y'all are talking about the post from Wantslove, who said she wanted to speak out, but she was too weak.
