In the group I joined, a few topics I posted got no responses at all, or maybe one, and my post disappeared to the 2nd page within hours. The "regulars" post up a storm and heavily support one another. So before you join, it LOOKS like there is a friendly group of people who will welcome you in with loving hearts. I believe that information is mined from the replies and journals by the "regulars" to write books and internet blogs on the topic (of that particular) group. Certain books are recommended in a topic posting, and it will be praised and heavily recommended by the "regulars" ad nauseum. You will feel invisible and like an outsider, and go away feeling far worse. The initial friendliness is phony and if you aren't of use to the "regulars" you will be ignored, and also possibly be victimized by mean comments so that you will go away and not upset appearances.

The site plants a serious "evercookie" which cannot be deleted in clearing cache and cookies, since it runs in many systems of the computer. Its a tracking cookie and nearly impossible to remove. It also causes long running scripts which froze my PC every time I left the site, also the PC crashed once (a new PC).

Emails opened from DailyStrength can contain tracking material.

This IS a dangerous site! Not just in psychological harm, or PC damage. I immediately was lured in private messages by a few users to give out my phone # , since the user was "not good at writing posts"....duh? Also the private messages were inquiring of my location. This site is a playground for predators.

The moderators will not care. They will have Daily Strength delete you with no explanation. With one browser I couldn't sign in, even with cookies enabled, I think because I had "Do not track" in place.

The "regulars" were promoting medicines and therapy in their topics/comments. This site or at least certain groups, are big $money-makers$ for the self interests they are promoting. Also group members will write how great this group of supportive friends is in this amazing group, but it isn't true, it's manipulation. The newbie will feel an outsider and will give up and leave, while the group will show a HUGE and ever-growing membership. The posts talk a good talk, but the talk is more for the non-member, not for the member. It's all about capitalism, and the dynamics jeopardize the well being of anyone who is vulnerable and actually needs support. Greater isolation and lack of trust in people will be the result, in addition you may be scammed by predators. The moderator won't care about the phishing private messages, btw.

AVOID!
