    I don't understand why people keep posting other web sites when the rules clearly state not to. I was just over to general health and found another one. it just ticks me off. Does'nt anyone read the rules or do they just not care what they say. Danisue

    All I do know is that we are not suppose to and it can result in that person not being able to post. I think part of it is people trying to sell stuff or promote their own businesses and I think thats is a conflict of interest as there are products sold here. I have'nt read the rules myself for awhile. I don't mean to sound harsh .I just don't understand why some one would do that if they knew they were not suppose to ,it's either they don't read the rules or they just don't care.It's so disrespectful to those who have spent so much time ,gathering info and Doctors report ect .To help us.I've learned so much here and everyone has such a concern for those that come here and post. It just make me upset that they would'nt take the time to read the rules or do it anyway if they did.I hope this has helped you to understand Best to you Danisue

    I think I best read the forum rules. Although a member since, Lord 3-years ago, things do change. I've been out with a "not well" spell.

    Thanks for the reminder. CactusLil'

    Yesterday or was it the day before I was answering someone & did put www.----. I am sorry I am fairly new to the boards & hadn't read the Messages boards. It won't happen again.

    Thanks all for your wonderful response.I promise I won't make myself sick over this.It's just that everyone here works so hard to put together such a wonderful place to come to .They spend their money and research so we can have all this valuable information at our finger tips and then people can't even read the rules.I hope I have'nt offended anyone.Just thought maybe some would read this post and read the rules. Thanks again all of you.

    Hi Plantscraper, I don't know what wrong with it but, if you click on this little blue triangle at the bottom of your post a window will appear and you could let some one that takes care of those things know that you had a problem. I hope this helps Danisue

    I cannot concentrate long enough to remember what I read and my neck hurts too much to sit that long so I kind of just watch and try to learn.

    If we make a mistake as a newcomer I think it's not intentional and hopefully we'll be forgiven (?).

    But it's really not worth getting too upset about. We're here to get and give help, right?

    And I know we care what the rules say - there are SO many people visiting here all the time I think they just don't realize.

    I just clicked on the rules and they came right up. It explains in the rules why we cannot post URL's here but I'm going to try to explain it one more time.

    ProHealth cannot be responsible for the content of other websites. For that reason, they don't want people posting the URL's here. Shirl and I do not have time to go chasing down websites to see what kind of content they have. They could be porn sites or competitors of ProHealth. Anyone can have his or her own website. We had one woman who posted her URL all over the boards and she was advocating taking Ephedrine for FMS.

    You may name a website or give some info about it so that members can use their search engines to find out more, but giving the URL is not allowed.

    A URL is the complete address which,if typed into the address box in your browser, will take you into that site. An example: The name of our website here is Immune Support. The URL is www.immunesupport.com. Spelling out the dot and the com is not allowed. It is considered the same as posting the URL.

    I hope this helps clear this up. Thanks for your help.

    Love, Mikie

    I am somewhat new to computers. Teaching myself as I type.

    Had no idea what a URL was until recently. I looked all over trying to find out what that meant then it finally clicked.

    Take Care all we all make mistakes, maybe except me/lol.

    I understand that there are rules but people here are hurting and trying to help each other. Chill child get ticked at the fact that this is 2003 and there is no actual way to diagnose this DD. And it is trail and error. That is what really ticks me off. And the FibroFog!! And the exhausted sleep we aren't able to get!!
    Ticked off at this DD
