Hello Ms. Wild Flower…

I hope you are well. Here’s what I think is most important for you to know:

  1. Sometimes people on this platform aren’t very nice.
  2. Sometimes people on this platform have been here, left and come back again under different names.
  3. Some of them do not have good intentions.
  4. Some people have proven themselves to be trusted, respected members of this community.
  5. Some people SEEM like they are, but they really are not.
  6. Trusting your gut is important here.
  7. If people you don’t know all that well are using Private Notes to tell you something about someone else… well — I dunno — if they are defending themselves, maybe — let your gut be your guide.
  8. Some people like to collect ‘followers,’ ‘stats’ and other such and such — so they say rude and mean things and when they are checked they get all “I’m a victim!” Blah blah blah me me me
  9. Just have fun here and don’t worry so much as long as you aren’t sharing your personal information with people who don’t ‘sit right inside your belly’ you will be just fine.
  10. Remember the old saying, if someone gossips to you, they will gossip about you. :)

Ask questions. Trust but verify. Wild Flower.
