update

I added some more links to the eating disorder section of the userinfo page, and reworked some wording of other parts of the page. I found the links because the Hartford Courant had an article on pro-anorexia/pro-bulimia sites today. Again, if anyone runs across useful websites, pass the links on to me, and I'll try to get them on the userinfo page.

I have updated the community information page. There is a new link section which will be growing as I weed through resources. I am being very selective about what I link to.

Also, I added a link to the FAQ page on the lj-cut thing, for those who don't know what it is or how to use it. Please use your discretion about when to put text behind an lj-cut. If you are giving graphic details about a rape or assault, I ask that you do this. It gives readers the opportunity to decide whether or not they want to continue reading explicit material that may be emotionally triggering.

TECHNICAL

I changed the settings on this community so that every post requires moderation first. That means before it is posted, I will decide if it is appropriate or not. I want this to be a safe space, and troll proof, as much as possible. I won't refuse something because of length or anything like that, but I do ask that you use the [lj-cut] function for anything that is much longer than a paragraph, out of consideration for others.
Someone said their item was not posting, but I did not see a real post in the stack for that...please try again.
