    I used to think the same. But TheMix don’t just put suicidal people on bans. They put people who go against the rules or those who they feel will benefit from a ban. we have all signed up to the rules so should really follow them. And plus sometimes a break can help to find others crisis support & is with best intentions. Understand the frustation tho
    I've learnt two people can look at the exact same thing and see something completly different.

    @Shaunie's bang on, here - we don't put people on breaks or bans just because they're suicidal. If we did, the community would be much smaller than it is. There are a lot of reasons we might decide a break is right for someone, some of which Shaunie has outlined. It's never something we do lightly.

    I'm closing this thread now as I know we've talked about this privately, too. It's good to have you back @Lostsense. :)
