Default Q&A Chat Rules

Reproduced from our "Chats" page. These rules apply to the time Dr. Grohol is hosting a Q&A in the chat room only.

  • Please read the disclaimer and terms of use before participating in any of Dr. Grohol's online chats. (The lawyers made me do this!)
  • Chats are informal and centered around general mental health and relationship questions. Dr. Grohol regrets he cannot make specific treatment recommendations for any problems presented, nor can he diagnose a problem online.
  • Questions are answered in the order received. If the chat is busy, you are requested to limit yourself to 2 or 3 questions.
  • If you find Dr. Grohol hasn't answered your question after about 10 or 15 minutes, please ask it again. Sometimes questions go by more quickly than he can see and respond to them (especially if the chat is busy).
  • Since Dr. Grohol is not a medical doctor, he prefers not to answer questions about medications, but can refer you to the online reference guide to medications about common side effects, indications, etc.
  • Always check with your own doctor or therapist before making any changes in your treatment regimen.
  • Private messages to Dr. Grohol are strongly discouraged, since they take away from the public chat (which is the point of the chat in the first place!).

Thanks!

I need to post 6 times before I can enter chat rooms so I'm spreading myself around, leaving breadcrumbs hoping someone will find me. Yep I have to admit that I'm needy. I couldn't believe it when my psych told me that. What! I've never needed anyone in my life and I've never been lonely either. So there.
All I need is my dog, and I'm depressed as hell right now.

Default Re: Q&A Chat Rules

I was wondering if there are any rules about what can and can not be talked about in chat? I've seen some rules scattered around here and there about other things regarding chat, but not this one. The q came up in chat earlier but I'm not sure about it.

Like it's not allowed to post about religions to much. I'm guessing same thing goes about chat? Like no reall indepth conversations as they can quickly turn into heated debates?

How about political topics?

Thanks

Blue

i think chat is an area that definately needs monitoring because of the nature of this site and the sensitivities present.. if we cant monitor ourselves then someone else has to do it, making a 'police type' situation.. we are looking for freedom so why dont we try and be responsible here?

I just wanted to share that you can eliminate the problem of red text in your settings. Solves the problem, I don't get angry anymore just tab over and over ride the settings. It's also helpful when people feel the need to use those neon colors as well, that gives me an instant headache so it's a handy feature.
