I agree with both of you guys.




There are a lot of us who would go to somebody IRL except we don't trust anyone enough. :/

KidPub was not made as an outlet for your personal problems. KidPub is a children's writing website. If you would like to vent your feelings through a piece writing, then go write ahead and do so. Write as much poetry or as many stories as you'd like. But if you want to sit at your computer screen and write angry messages about how much you hate somebody who the other members of this website don't even know, then this is not the place to do it.

I would also like people to know that when you write something in very small text and make it colored white, people can still read it. It is not invisible.

This is also not your private diary. This is the internet. Anything you post on this website, even if you delete it, it's still there. If you're posting messages about how much you hate someone, you never know - maybe they'll be surfing the net one day and just happen upon your message. Especially if it's your parents and they know that you have a KidPub account. What if the subject of your hating message reads it?

Hey, it's not private.

This is a children's website. There are nine-year-olds on here. Even if you white out what you're writing, everyone can still read it. Much of what people post on these threads is not appropriate for this website.

I'm not saying that venting is wrong. All I'm saying is that KidPub is not the place to do it. I know many of you are going through hard times, but if you are really, truly depressed and are having as many problems as you're letting on, please go talk to someone you know in real life! Don't rely on your internet friends for support. There are people who love you and will listen to you in your own life.

I don't want you guys to start venting at me for this. If you are totally against what I'm saying and want to argue, get some real reasons and I'll listen to you. I don't want to start a fight because of this.

Please take into consideration what I'm saying. There are members on here who have been hurt because of these "venting" threads. (I'm not just talking about the Emotional Venting Thread, though it's included in this. There are multiple threads like it.) I've posted angry messages on here myself, and now I regret them, and wish I hadn't. I feel like these threads are highly inappropriate for this website. Maybe I'm making a big deal out of nothing, but I would like for you all to take this into consideration.

I agree with you, and see what you're saying. Obviously, people still need a way to vent, but I don't know how. I can see from you angle, but we need a better solution.

I understand what you mean by KP isn't meant for venting. My only objection is that sometimes, I vent on here because its the only place I can go. If I have to vent about my parents or my friends or stuff I can't talk to my parents about, sometimes, the best place to do it is on here, because people don't know who I am on here, that way, it's harder for people to judge me.

People on KidPub know who I am, more than anyone I've ever met in person.

Same here. I don't think there's anyone else who has the faintest idea of who I'm really like more than LST, MaryElizabeth, Camikat, Sophie, and all those other people. :|

I just want it to go away.

I can't write because all this stuff is packed in my head...

My brain is hurting because of it.

Seriously.

And I agree, it really isn't the best topic for KidPub.
However, I think we do need an alternative for people to go to. Maybe, like, a private forum on a different site, or an email group, or something. Because, generally, we trust each other on KP and I don't know if that would transfer as well to other sites, and some of us really need support.
And I've also seen KP make a lot of difference for people. Helped them get through depression, help them work on stopping cutting, possibly even saved their lives.
So, yeah, basically I think we shouldn't stop people from venting, not until we find an alternative…

I agree.
I think we should have like an "Alternate" website if anybody really needs help.
Hey, we're all friends, right?
*eyes everybody*
