why do you go to these sites if they trigger so much emotion for you?

I understand the feeling. I used to be a member of myproana and used it religiously. It definitely was the biggest contributor to my illness. It's shocking how they can be allowed to have such a website.

I haven't heard of the site. I'm sorry it was such a bad experience, tho.

I don't understand how they sleep at night calling themselves a help site

if you want to help your friend, then be there for him/her. Be a friend and someone who cares about them. Going to those sites to try to enact some sort of revenge is not going to help.

If I could shut them down it would stop them from hurting others.

emailing local authorities or the FBI. Emailing the server provider.
I'm not saying it would work...but at least you would have tried. However, you're going to run into it being a first amendment issue. Free speech and all that.

The best thing to do is just stay off the site. By you visiting the site, they generate more advertising money and will stay online longer.

They wouldn't get money off me... I have an add blocker...
Speaking of wich does this site run adds? If so ill have to white list it.

But.. Okay. I guess wanting some sort of revenge has sorta been clouding my head lately.

I heard about that site and decided to take a look, I know that exact feeling you're talking about. Just rage, that any person could DO 'that'. It's sick.

It's best to just stay away, and do your best to be supportive of anyone going to those sites or that has an E.D.

as a general whole i hate proana sites but myproana isn't too bad, i mean if you go there specifically looking for trouble you'll get into it really quickly the site isn't really designed for people who are trying to recover although there is a forum for recovery. the sites purpose is more to provide a supportive community to those who may not be ready to recover. There are a few forums that are extremely pro ana (thinspiration,dieting ect) but the greater majority of the forums are simply people having conversations the same way we do here, in fact those who ask for help doing things that are harmful are suggested to get help and leave the site

the self harm forum is one small section there i used to go there on and off but i stopped visiting that section as it had nothing to offer in the way of support although there were some graphic photos on there i never saw anything encouraging me or anyone else to hurt myself. with the exception of one member who was latter banned for doing so, i think every site has one bad member though. im sorry for your friends experience though can you tell me exactly what the post was?

They refuse to tell me so i don't get ideas… (i was on pro si sites for a while… but revenge is something else she's trying to stop)
