I have not been on this board for awhile but decided to pop in. In some of the posting I open there is fighting going on between some members like they are in high school. I am disappointed as I come here for information, to get help when I am down and to relief stress as it is nice to be with people that understand me and my illness. This negative stuff is totally stressing me out due to all of the tension. I would love to think that we could get back to the positive as we are here to gain knowledge, help people out that need it when they are going through a bad time, let new people know that we are there for them. I can't imagine what reading some of these post may look like to some of the new people that join it must look like alot of game playing. Sorry to be harsh but I would think the best thing to do is when you do not like or agree with someones post is to just respond in a respectful way or do not respond at all but keep the negative, condoscending remarks out of it. If the other per person cannot keep their response respectful just state I refuse to continue this discussion with you and by doing so the people or person that continue the behavor will find another forum to post at instead of creating problems for people at this one. Some of these people seem to add nothing yet seem to do alot of research to prove people wrong as if they are on a mission and spend most of their time concentration on that instead of concentrating on finding new and helpful things to help people on this board. Also some of the things that are discussed are way off topic they should be in the chat room as they do not have anything to do with FMS/CFS. Wow I wonder if this is the same board I use to go to. Also any negative replies to this post in order to start an argument about this topic will not be responded to as I do not think there is room for argument on this topic your opinion is wanted but I will not be targeted by some of the very people that may be doing this. I would like this board to go back to the board I recognized prior from today one that is informative, kind and thoughtful.
