I agree . We can definitely have a general chit chat and gossip thread to discuss all the topics and issues in any forum as deemed appropriate . But the old and the recent relationship banter thread started by rihana were not just gossip threads . It would separate the topic from the OP and let you gain perspective in ways that helps . Responses shared there lets you try and look at things in a different light . Its far from some juicy gossip. And rihana's and others invaluable insights make it special. Her ability to dissect the actual issue from the emotional outpour is always evident .
