Is it My Fault?

I think I’d be very wary about spilling my heart on this site and then leaving it to the mercy of a free for all by any Tom, Dick or Harry. More to the point anyone doing so might want to read the Privacy Policy before getting spammed by just about anyone selling a service with a tenuous link to the very issue up for discussion.   More
