Q: At a recent meeting, a member shared that the new Overeaters Anonymous, Third Edition is wonderful. She has it on her e-reader, and since the e-book has an option to share comments
with all other readers, she responded with comments. Since the comment function is there, she assumed it is an OA-approved feature and that it is okay to comment. Is it? Is this cross talk or a break in anonymity?
A: OA has no opinion on outside issues. In addition, OA does not endorse any outside enterprises. If the member chose to share a comment, that is her choice. Members who mention that they are in OA are choosing to break their own anonymity. The opinions of the OA members do not represent OA as a whole.
