    Yes, many. I have a few 'triggers', so I can usually gauge what the thread is about from the title, and decide from there whether or not I should avoid it.

    I am a little of yes and a little of no. I hover over it to see what it is about. If its about a topic that I really dont want to read about I will steer clear, but sometimes I will read it because I know it is (OP) or will be interesting (responses). I think that even though they say trigger, there should be a topic but in the subject. EG one currently just says "trigger, Oh my god", I have to read it to figure out if I want to read it or not. But if it says "trigger - rape" then I steer clear.

    Hope that makes sense.

    No, I usually check them out. If it's unpleasant or doesn't interest me I just stop reading.

    WTF? I'm hearing some pretty bad stuff about these FB groups, that's so horrible

    I don't have triggers so I do read most things.

    Yes it was a disgusting thing to say, I wish the bully rules were in at the time but oh well. I refuse to be part of any of those groups.

    Never.

    I have a strong stomach and I'm not easily offended and I believe in freedom of speech.

    I've never been offended or traumatized by anything another hubber exposed.
