Apple CEO Tim Cook on user privacy: A few years ago, users of Internet services began to realize that when an online service is free, you're not the customer. You're the product. But at Apple, we believe a great customer experience shouldn't come at the expense of your privacy.

I don't want to call anyone out specifically, because I don't want to bring extra negative attention to people that are clearly having a hard time, but I think anyone that reads askme regularly will notice certain repeat askers, who always ask variations on 'I am depressed, and my life is terrible, tell me how to be okay with that." And basically never take any advice from anyone. Is there a point where the mods will tell them that it's not a great use of askme? Or should they? Is everyone okay with using askme as a therapist when they clearly need to be in actual therapy?

I had a comment of mine from the chat get reposted in the boston thread, which was a relatively innocuous comment, so I'm not really mad about it, but I'd really prefer that that doesn't become a thing. The chat requires a log in to view, it's not archived publicly and the expectations about what people can and can't talk about there are different. Thanks.
