Default Is anyone moderating this forum?

I was just browsing out of curiosity, but I was shocked by some of the things people without NPD are saying to people with NPD in this "safe space". Tons of posts about how NPD can't be cured, extremely hostile statements toward NPD people, claiming that if a poster wants to address their issues they must not really have NPD... Really upsetting stuff. And I'm just a bystander, not someone here to get support for a shocking new diagnosis.

Hello trillionbytes: Thank you for sharing your concern. I don't typically post in the NPD forum. So I can't comment. However I noticed this is your first post here on PC. So I thought I would just say welcome to PsychCentral. My best wishes to you...

We’re all very aware of it, comes with the territory.

Hi, trillionbytes, and welcome! If you see a disparaging post, then please report it to a moderator. They can't read every post every day. Okay?

Hi trillionbytes,

Some times in the past I kinda (codependently) took it on myself to refer some posts to the moderators that seemed more appropriate for other forums. What you see now could be worse, believe it or not.

I was shocked when I first started reading articles by therapists in other places on PC and elsewhere about how horrible people with NPD were. It's my suspicion that a lot of the general public have been following their lead.

Some posts remained in the forum and I wondered if the resident NPD's don't like to "tattle tale". Maybe they would rather tackle things head on was my view? So, codependently, as I said, I took it on. I didn't like to do that either, maybe none of my business, but I didn't like seeing those things here. Thought it muddied the waters and perhaps biased the discussion.

My interest in NPD is kinda tangential to my broader in interest in "narcissism" in general and the (healthy) development of a sense of self and identity.

What's your interest in the topic, if you would like to say?

Default Re: Is anyone moderating this forum?

yes there are moderators for this forum. every forum has a team of moderators. you can see who they are by scrolling down to the bottom of the page where it says

Moderators : 6

then underneath that is the moderators names for those moderators that take care of that forum board here in this forum board the moderators are...
FooZe, TheWell, Lavender., CANDC, splitimage, Turtleboy

if you find a questionable post or one that you feel is not right in some way you click on that report triangle to the left of the offending post. then the moderating team responsible for the forum will check that out.

Welcome! It's very sad to hear this kind of response from a first-time poster. I hope the mods and members can work together to provide a safe environment for new members seeking help, and I hope this doesn't deter you away from receiving support here.
