If you are lurking and are intrigued and want to comment, but are afraid to do so because you are not quite sure of the protocol around here, and you feel like your input might not be appreciated, just try dipping your toes in the water. I for one wished I had done that instead of jumping in head first into the waters of social media, never even having been on face book, just learning to text, and completely unfamiliar with reddit. I came up sputtering and lost as I tried to understand red pill concepts and acronyms, and figure out the ropes of pushing the right buttons to upvote, quote, and you name it. What made matters worse was I was just hitting my stride when I got banned. I had stumbled into a blue pill brigade (still not sure what that means exactly) and my comments, unbeknownst to me were stoking the fires. I was pretty upset about being banned because I was really starting to understand and appreciate the discussions and advice I was reading, so I emailed the moderators with a rebuttal. Long story short, I was not only welcomed back, the mods went out their way to help me navigate these unfamiliar waters. I have definitely used up my “message the mods” quota, and I am ashamed to admit that the last time I emailed them was a ridiculous and paranoid impulse on my part. Instead of trusting my own good judgment in making a comment, I let the hamster loose and suddenly I was just certain that I had opened myself up to ridicule. I was still afraid of the Blue Pill response, or the TRP response, or the MRP response, because let’s face it no one wants to be ridiculed. I have finally come to peace with the fact that our mods know what the hell they are doing, that the tone of this sub will continue to be positive, that its members will continue to be honest, and that it is for all women. I am grateful to be here because I lack regular female companionship in my life. I feel I have a lot to offer this sub as well as a lot learn from it. Thank you to the mods of this sub for their patience, their hard work and their commitment in using their life experiences to help other women. To those who are intrigued, please consider taking the step to comment. I have found that older wiser advice is welcomed here.
