Dulcinea's Insight

  • Support sites, forums, message boards and chat rooms can all be used as support outlets. Moderated Web sites are usually run by volunteers who are familiar with the particular issue and can ensure that the conversations stay on track. Un-moderated boards can be useful, but beware that there may be people with an agenda different from yours. Always use caution when chatting on the Web.
