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
