LiveJournal rubbernecking. Sort of.

There's a kid on a D/s community out there in LiveJournalland who's involved in one heck of a bad relationship with someone she absolutely adores, who treats her really very badly. Every so often she'll post saying "I don't understand what I've done wrong, [x awful thing] has just happened, what did I do?" Scores of people reply to her posts, saying "You're in an abusive relationship, get out now, he's bad bad news" and explaining from their various points of view why they think her relationship isn't a D/s one so much as an abusive one. Most of them are very eloquent about it. All of them make good points.
Then she'll post an an answer saying "Thank you all so much, I am so very grateful. I now see where I went wrong and I will do my best to avoid angering my Sir in this way again."

She's so far posted roughly one entry in each of four months and they've *all* made me stare at the computer in horror. But I don't know her or anyone on the community, and one extra voice isn't going to make any difference, and in any case I wouldn't have anything to say that hasn't already been said. So instead I just sit here and bite my lip and wish I knew if there was anything I could do to help, or say that would get through to her.

She's not in danger of being seriously hurt physically, but emotionally it's got the potential to be a really horrible protracted train wreck.

Sigh.

    Well, clearly I'm not going to manage to post a song every day, because for the last...what is it, like, six? I have kept trying and then deciding…
