Recoveryllama Chat Rooms
Welcome to chat!
We're friendlier over here, eh!
And more fun!
Advantages of Recoveryllama chats
~No forever bans. Except for sexual predator sorts.
~Believes civil conversation is possible on nearly any topic if done respectfully. Even politics and religion!
~Believes even recovery chatters enjoy fun features like GIFs, doodles, picture uploads, avatars.
~Understands that sometimes us adults enjoy using all our words, even the naughty ones. This isn't church! And we send the kids to "safer" sites.
~Principles over personalities. We believe in transparency. We ban based on violations to our User Agreement. If someone asks why they were banned, we should be able to clearly tell anyone who asks about it. Accountability! If you're gonna be embarrassed by your behaviour, don't do it!
~No expectation of "loyalty." Encourages sharing of all online resources. This is just one of many chats. We encourage chatting elsewhere if you need something different than what we have to offer. We encourage "multi-chatting" - being at multiple spots at once. Want links to other chats or other meetings? Just ask, it's okay here. Share your recovery related links if it helps someone. That's why we're here, to help, not hinder.

Stepchat.com folks. Stepchat offers more safety, we offer more freedom of speech. They go there for one thing, here for another. Or they're banned.
InTheRooms.com castaways. Some of us chatted at intherooms.com before one of the owners had a fit and closed down the chatroom. So now we come here or use the uncensored room.
