As a result of this, the operators may occasionally act to remove anyone who continues to jeopardise the chatting environment.
All users are asked to respect the decisions of the ops at any given time.
Please treat others with the RESPECT and TOLERANCE that you would hope to be treated with yourself.
Behaviour that is INTOLERANT, UNSUPPORTIVE, UNWELCOMING, UNFRIENDLY or INSENSITIVE and therefore harms the good environment of the chatrooms will NOT be tolerated.
Everyday tasks which most people take for granted - such as working, socialising, shopping, speaking on the telephone, even just going out of the house - might be a wearing ordeal marked by persistent feelings of anxiety and self-consciousness.
Public performances or social gatherings might be out of the question.
Despite being the most common type of anxiety disorder and the cause of much impairment and suffering, it is under-recognised and under-treated.
When the social anxiety becomes this bad, sufferers could be diagnosed with Social Anxiety Disorder, also known as Social Phobia. Sufferers differ in how naturally reserved or outgoing they may be and in regard to the sorts of situations or people they might find most difficult or might be OK with.
Individuals who are particularly socially inhibited, avoidant and sensitive to criticism or rejection may meet criteria for Avoidant Personality Disorder, now seen by many as only the more extreme or generalised end of an 'SA spectrum'.
Whoever you talk to now, you should also visit your GP.
They will be able to advise you on treatment options, should these feelings continue to trouble you.
