Code: Select all

In addition to the two high-profile suicides mentioned, there was this just yesterday: Suicide rates [in US] are up 30 percent since 1999, CDC says . From the article: Nevada is the only state that saw a decrease in that time period. But I don't think that necessarily says that we're doing somethin...

Not at all. I was logged in here when I signed up there. I didn't "leave" here at all. :lol:
Still makes little sense to me. (But that happens to me more often now.)

What 'became problematic'? If you mean the Engaged section here is no problem here, then why extend the invitation here to leave & go to the new site?
Where did I say "leave"? One can post on all forums, if interested.
