I don't have any friends that know my new address and I did give it to some people on here. I NEVER had intentions of hurting myself and would have much rather someone pm'd me and maybe got more information before going as far as they did.

Oy this turned in to a mess because that is exactly what happened. I was told that a lot of people who saw your original post were very concerned that you would try to commit suicide so they contacted the board mods who contacted authorities.

I hope you understand it was done out of concern, not to cause you any more stress or problems.

I honestly didn't know that mods had any way of knowing our physical addresses? I am sure some members have personal contact or friendships with mods, and that would make sense, but the only time anyone on tbc knew my addy was when we used to do a card/ornament exchange. Don't mean to harp on it, but it really was shocking to me at the first reading. I always think people take internet security and privacy to extremes, but this made me think they were right. It sounded very Orwellian.

The explanation makes sense now however. If they did have your contact information I'm guessing they felt morally obligated to check on you. They did it out of concern for you and out of concern for the kids too. Please try to not be offended but instead feel cared for.

In the defense of those that were concerned to the point of calling authorities, you have vented here before regarding feeling suicidal and truly that isn't something to take lightly. I am certain you would do the same for any of us if it were the other way around. I know I personally felt pretty helpless and just kept checking back (both times) you posted needing help, hoping you'd post so we knew you were okay.

Well I'm sorry it came accross that way. It wasn't ment to. But I personally would have pm'd the person and talked a little more before going to authorities cause depending on their career and lots of other things, the authorities showing up at your place can cause a while heap of other problems. If someone would have contacted me and voiced their concern, I would have made sure they understood that was NOT what I ment!!!
