I would like to know what happens if I choose to follow a topic and it goes somewhere I am not sure I am supposed to be, is there a way to follow another topic to lead me back to a safe place? 

 

In simple terms, how integrated is this platform? Does it truly care for my needs as a forum participant or am I supposed to blindly follow along without asking questions? 

 

And if someone follows this topic and it goes nowhere, is there a gauge of disappointment available and a method of compensating said follower?


Almost regarded by one member as the best non-golf playing golfer on this forum.

You're looking for a lot of mothering there, PG.

You should never "follow" a topic but actually be part of the conversation. We need more leaders than followers in this world.

 

PS we also dont care

Safe places are the in thing, it’s important to ensure everyone has a safe place to retire, in case the mental anguish is too much to stand.

The police force are giving counselling to any members that are traumatised by the results of the same sex wedding debate. Universities are giving students the right to not read anything in the course they are taking that may cause distress, if you are doing a course on examination of dead bodies and you are distressed by the sight of dead bodies you do not have to look at them even though it will be your job.

In the same way, Mads has a legal obligation to make sure PG and any other snowflake members are correctly distanced from anything that could cause distress. There should be a quiet place they can go to, to reflect on the problems of following the subjects that cannot be followed, and also some assistance from the management in framing relevant questions to alleviate the stress caused by an incomplete thread.

Just my thoughts in anticipation of a PG breakdown.
