I am a liberal stuck in a small midwestern town. A few months ago I stumbled upon this website and now I visit it daily, relieved to find that there are other people like me out there in this world. Reading the diaries makes me think, gives me hope, and generally results in me feeling a little less alone.
I've read other diaries requesting your assistance, so I hope you'll forgive me if this is not the correct forum.
Here's where I need your help: I don't understand the rules, the abbreviations and the terms used here!!! It appears there are subjects that are 'bannable.' Diarists are 'HRed' which is, apparently, really bad. There are 'tip jars' and numerous other things that I can't figure out. I went to the Help section but couldn't find any answers. Would any of you be kind enough to point me in the right direction? And, if there is a more appropriate place to ask questions such as these in the future, could you tell me where that is?
There must be other new members out there who would also benefit from your guidance. Such help would enable us to participate more fully here.
Thank you all so much. Please don't HR me (whatever that is)!
