i would stay away from bpdworld. josh(owner) profiteers from that site. they are not a charity, nor are they a site that runs at a loss. the various 'packages' of memberships are designed purely to make money, they dont just cover site costs. he is also advertising his own book on that site, again aimed at making himself money. i think making profit out of mental health peer support is morally reprehensible.
im not having a go at the OP here(sorry if it appears that way), im sure you had no idea this was the case.

I used BPD world some time back(I have some bpd traits) and agree with you that Josh is a suspect character, but didn't want to deny other people the right to make up their own minds, as to how good or bad the site is, by not having a link to the site.

I know a fair number of people left there and a small number of alternative support sites were set up, but none of them flourished very well unfortunately.

I was kicked off there because i complained that i was not allowed access to the paid members area which i had paid for access to and that nobody had got back to me, despite several emails sent by me,to ensure that the problem was solved.
Basically i paid £15 odd for a part of the board i couldn't access.

I also know that several female posters made accusations of sexual improprieties by Josh but do not know for certain whether these were true or not.

i think it would be a good idea if your list of sites was made a sticky - anyone else agree? sometime it's really important to have support for specific issues, and it's not always easy to find the right site, hugs, Judith xxx

I know of a service user who paid £30 for an assessment, which he took, but then woudnt give a response to the assessment because he didnt want to contradict the psychiatrists diagnosis... he offered follow up email contact but got very grumpy after the second email. Refund refused,

I would recommend people avoid ginving him any money whatsoever.
