BlahTherapy

Our thoughts and stuff

adviiceandstuff:

So I tried out blahtherapy today as a venter.

This is the response I got from a listener.

I told the listener I didn’t like the mentioning of “freak from fight club” as that’s not helpful at all. Especially if another venter was in vulnerable position or place. Yes even though I wasn’t so vulnerable it still wasn’t very pleasant to here.

They then responded with disgusting remarks like in the second picture.

I appreciate and support 100% the idea of blahtherapy but sometimes the listeners are seriously awful.

I tried listening a few times, and I’m not a professional but I try to at least help in a way that I can. It might not be the best advice but I would never offend someone, or write nasty things like this.

I think the site needs to clear out some of these people. If there was a rating service it might be helpful in this situation. Like was this listener helpful, yes or no ?

And if the listener gets more than 10 nos then they are banned from being a listener..?

Anyway I just thought id post my experience.. And maybe other experiences to come..

I’m really sorry to see that this happened to you.

A new app is coming to thwart these situations. Soon you will have the option to speak with registered members only who have been members for 30+ days. You will also be able to filter out who you connect to by their QnA score acquired in the community along with a new and improved banning system. Hang in there, we’ll get these trolls out soon enough. :) xo

Blahtherapy! I cannot figure out how to contact you, since the FAQ help seems to also be error-screening and your tumblr doesn’t seem to have an ask.
So here I am.
I cannae get to your site; whenever I get to the “Listener, Venter” screen, it redirects to this page. It has worked previously and I don’t know what to do.
It would suck if I couldn’t use your site anymore, but it’s so difficult to contact you!!

It is most likely a temporary DNS issue (considering you’re receiving this and not everyone). It should go to normal if you check back within a few hours.
