LISTEN UP! YES, YOU!
IT HAS COME TO MY ATTENTION THAT NASTY REMARKS ARE PROLIFERATING THIS SITE. I've had a couple of friends who now avoid the site completely or come to this site very minimally due to this and it is totally not right! We may be ill but we are not stupid so when nasty remarks are made whether using a person's name or not, they DO GET THE MESSAGE! Like I always tell my kids, "If you can't say something NICE, keep your mouth shut." Dear God people! Do we all at this site not have enough of a burden and issues to deal with like meds, moron "expert" drs, tests, etc. that we have to rip & tear at each other? COME ON! We all should be old enough to know how to "play nice" and if you can't "play nice", then take your toys and go home. I, thankfully, haven't had the experiences, but I've had others tell me their horror stories. We have to have some place where we can ask, learn, listen, and be understood. So, again, if you can't say something nice, just keep your mouth shut.
