- Yes, because you get constantly reminded and can't let go
- No, because others opinions help with clearing the dust

I don't think GAG prevents people from moving on, No one or anything can stop a person from moving on. Moving on is choice. Behaviour is voluntary, you choose start a relationship, you can choose to continue a relationship, or you can choose to end a relationship.
"There are no victims in relationships, there are only volunteers". Everyone at some point in their lives, allowed others to treat them like shit. Obviously children are not volunteers, they are helpless and innocent to abusive people. Evil people take advantage of innocent people and helpless people.
I think most people use gag, to help them make the right decisions, give them insight from their experiences. We all need help and advice, but it doesn't mean we are weak, and we can't move on.

The thing that I noticed is that those who don't seem to want to move on are those who don't even care for the opinions on here. There are two girls are the moment in particular that keep posting the same question (several times a day) and everyone tells them to move on. But they don't care, they don't really reply to any opinions; they just post the question (slightly rephrased or with additional info) again. It's like they're hoping that someone will finally write that there is hope, that the guy still loves them, will leave their new girlfriend for them, etc. To those girls, it would probably be best if they didn't have access to this site, but I'm not sure if it would make much of a difference.
I don't think you can generalise. I am sure that to some people this site helps to gain some insight, or see things from a different perspective, or just to get things off their chest. But there are certainly also those who just come here looking to hear/read a specific thing and don't actually want help.
