Topic: Posting Sensitive Subjects and Statistics
A little while ago on another thread, Lainy brought up the topic of whether posting mortality statistics and other more 'negative' stuff openly on this board was demoralizing to people trying to stay positive. I can't find that thread anymore, but I am also curious as to what others think about that. (I hope that I captured the spirit of your post Lainy).
The suggestion she had was putting this information in a place where people could actively choose to read it, instead of intermixing it with other information or posting it on board topics where people usually go and might inadvertently read.
So, in the spirit of open discussion, I bring it up here for input from others (since I can't find Lainy's original question).
